Colleen Greene wrote an easy to follow guide on how she adds her Genealogy Snapshot Boxes to her blog and shared the post with the Genealogy Bloggers group on Facebook yesterday.
I have little experience with html and am always glad for any help I can get. My blog is on Worpress.com and not self-hosted so I can’t do the nice box that she has. I’ve seen this on several of Colleen’s posts (such a cool idea) and wanted to do something similar. I didn’t want to steal her idea but when she posted her how-to I had to try it out.
First I changed the name to Genealogy Sketch and since I can’t use a box I added a short row of symbols to separate it from the upper part of this blogpost: 52 Ancestors: #52 Levina DOSS – Another Unmarried Mother and How She Helped Me Bring This Challenge Finale to an End with a Bang!

I am going to be adding my Genealogy Sketch to the new 52 Ancestors posts this year and when I have a few moments I’ll go in and add them to the ones from last year.
