I have a question for everyone. How did it get to be August already?!
It was great seeing so many of you in Indianapolis at Midwestern Roots last weekend. Hope to see several more at the FGS conference in San Antonio at the end of the month… which will be here before you know it.
Be sure to check out the Week 30 recap. Lots of great stories added last week!
Quick reminder — when you leave the link to your 52 Ancestors post, include the link to the actual post, not just to your blog. Sure, that post is at the top of the page now, but it won’t always be. Make it easy for your cousins to find you 😉
