52 Ancestors Challenge: Week 50 Recap

I52ancestors-week50t’s time for the Week 50 recap and, despite the busy-ness of the season, I’m feeling energized about the Challenge. Maybe it’s because I have the rest of the year’s posts mapped out. Maybe it’s the unexpected story I found while compiling my most recent post. Maybe it’s because I’m about ready to announce plans for 2015…

Last week, I tackled one of the posts that I’ve wanted to do since starting this challenge. I wrote about my search for the origins of my great-great-grandmother Susan Tucker Kelley, who I affectionately refer to as “my little orphaned milkmaid.”

My other post this past week told the rather unlikely story of my 6th-great-grandfather, Joseph Dickinson, and how dried beef saved him from a shipwreck. (Yes, you read that right.)

Who did you write about last week? Leave a link in the comments below. And be sure to go and look at the posts from Week 49. There are some good ones there — just like always!
