Ready for a Challenge? 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks!

My friend and colleague Amy Johnson Crow came up with a great idea on her blog No Story Too Small: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.

52ancestors

The challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor.

I’m always looking for an idea and I really like this one!  It can be any old thing as long as it is one ancestor.  I’m going to add a twist on mine, and do mine on female ancestors.  I’m going to start with my great grandmothers: Laura Cecile Donald, Idella Josephine Snavely, Sudie Hamrick, and Georgie Eva Baxter.

Go to Amy’s article, add your name in the comments and tell her you want to be included in her weekly wrap up.  Then once a week, write a blog post about an ancestor and include in the title: 52 Ancestors: #<x> <name>” (ex., 52 Ancestors: #1 Adah Young Johnson or 52 Ancestors: #1 Laura Cecile Donald). And remember it can be anything.  A story, a biography, a photograph, a research problem, a cool document.  What ever.

To your blogs!  It’s time to write!
