It hardly seems possible that it’s been a year since we started this journey of chronicling 52 ancestors in 52 weeks. In some ways it seems like yesterday, yet it also seems like forever ago! I’m going to share my thoughts later today on what I’ve learned this year, but for now, I want to say
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 52 Ancestors Challenge this year and supported this crazy idea. I also want to say
Whether you did 1 post or all 52, you did something to record, preserve, and share the story of your ancestors. That is worth celebrating!
I played a mean game of “catch up” at the end of the year. My extended absence in June put me behind, and I seemed to get “behind-er” as the year went on. But, I made it through all 52. Here are my posts from this past week:
- Nancy Dillon Kingery: 1842 Was a Rough Year
- Susan Orr Skinner: A Lesson in Family Dynamics
- Stanley Johnson: The Grandfather I Mostly Remember
- Della Starkey Ramsey: The Grandmother I Never Met
As always, leave a comment with a link to your 52 Ancestors post from this past week. Also, while you’re waiting for midnight to strike, take a look at the posts from Week 51. Lots of good reading there!
Ready for some more? We’re doing it all again in 2015!
