52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 49 Recap

52ancestors-week49As we get closer to the holidays, are you still blogging? It’s easy to get caught up in all of the “busy-ness” of the season. It’s also the perfect time to make the time to remember and reflect on those wonderful family stories. I do hope you’re recording yours.

Last week, I wrote about two of my ancestors:

    In answer to your question–are you still blogging? I set a precedent with my other blog, which has been running for nearly 6 years, of shutting down from just before Christmas to January 2 or 3, and do the same with Ancestors in Aprons. That means, I’m writing things ahead so that I will indeed have 52 Ancestors before the year is out. In fact today I published #50.

    I’ve been doing homework for my genealogy class at UW so I haven’t been able to blog but I just wanted to tell Amy – Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. My Dad had a half sister that he never met or knew – after he died I was going to try and visit her while on a cross country trip but she died a month before we left. I knew she had two sons and I knew their names but I couldn’t find them. One of them just contacted me through my blog after he found it with an internet search looking for family. He is thrilled that is has finally found some family on his grandfather’s side and I am so happy to have a new first cousin! Without Amy and this idea she had last January this never would have happened!

    (My last 8 posts will get done – and a hope a few will be posted by the end of the year.)
