52 Ancestors


Starting in January 2014, I’m participating in the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge created by genealogist, Amy Johnson Crow over at No Story Too Small. Her challenge was a perfect sync with my plan to profile stories from my family tree this year.

Throughout the year, I’ll add links below to the blog posts I write about my ancestors. Frankly, it’s inspiring to think about getting their stories out of my head – and on to the page. I hope you enjoy meeting the amazing people I come from.
