52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks!

That’s the challenge, 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks!  Amy Johnson Crow has been suggesting a challenge for a few years to genealogical researchers that they post something each week for each week of the year, 52 weeks in total, on a different ancestor each week.  It doesn’t have to be your immediate ancestor, although that’s a good way to extend your family tree. No, she says it can be a collateral relative or someone who is not a relative.  She also says there is no specific amount of information that has to be posted, but the idea is to do some research. For those who don’t wish to write a book about their ancestors or family members, this is a way of sharing individual stories. For those who think they would like to write a book, this could help them organize the research for that book.

Right now I plan to use it to research and write about those whose stories I may not have included in my books so far as well as those I am still researching. With a week dedicated to a particular ancestor/family member who knows what could be learned! It may even lead to another book! So, stay tuned!
