Welcome to the penultimate recap of the 2014 edition of 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks! It’s been a crazy week, between the holidays and trying to fit in the remaining posts in this year’s challenge. Here are my posts (yes, posts) from this past week:
- More Than Their Names: William W. Tucker and Mary Ann Nixon
- Robert Nixon: The Will to Learn
- Matilda Debolt: Waltzing Matilda or Merry Widow?
- Charity Courson: Phantom Ancestor
- An Overlooked Couple: John Starkey and Mary Monroe
The next weekly recap will be posted next Wednesday, December 31. Have you thought about who you’re going to write about in 2015? Here are some prompts to get you thinking.
Please leave a link to your post(s) from this week in the comments below. And be sure to check out the great posts from last week. It’s a good way to unwind from all of the holiday happenings!

NICHOLAS, St. (aka Claus, Santa)
A little Christmas fable to end my year of 52 Ancestors. Although the relationship to the Saint is tenuous, the story does involve ancestors (and others).
I’m curious what is happening next week, since it is still December and the 52 Challenge for 2014 is officially ended. I will take a look and see you next year. Happy New Year from me and my ancestors.
I’ll post the recap for the last week of 2014 next Wednesday (Dec 31). Then we begin 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: the 2105 Edition on January 1! I hope you’ll join us!
