The Ancestors

If it were not for Amy Johnson Crow and her 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge I may not have started blogging in 2014. During my first year, I wrote about my American ancestors on the paternal side of my family tree. In 2015 I wrote about my children’s European ancestors, from their grandparents to their 4th great-grandparents and continued with their 5th great-grandparents in 2017. By the time I celebrate my 4th Blogiversary on 23 January 2018, I will have finished the last three sets of 5th greats. Placeholders for future stories for the ancestors in the 9th generation will be added soon as well as links to stories written about more distant ancestors.
