The theme for Week 4 of 52 Ancestors was “Closest to Your Birthday.” It’s a fun way to look at the people in your family tree. For Judy Everett Ramos, that person was a girl named Frank. Cara Jensen of Sherlock Homes almost shares a birthday with her grandfather; her photos are great! Julie Goucher of Anglers Rest took a different view of birthdays, and explored some children who were born and died between census years.
I share a birthday with several people in my family tree. I focused on my great-grand-aunt Addie Sarah Kelley. Maybe I should call her my great-grand-maiden-aunt.
Leave a link in the comments to your Week 4 ancestor (whether or not you followed the theme)! Be sure to give the name of your ancestor — it makes it easier for cousins to find you!
