52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 9 Recap

52ancestors-week9March is Women’s History Month. If you’re stuck trying to decide which ancestor to blog about, how about looking at the female half of your tree?

    Thank you for issuing this challenge.

In the process I have also been updating the entries on Ancestry for people on the family tree. Another result of the challenge will be to identify what parts of the story require further investigation.
