As they always say, “Better late than never.” I’ve seen the “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” challenge across the genealogy blogger community during the past few months and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to carve out time to do it. Than I thought that since it was only once a week and I know it will probably help open up some research paths or even connect to new cousins, I decided to do it. I’m starting a bit late here in February, but I plan to go all 52 weeks.
I will talk about ancestors on both sides of my children’s trees, so my ancestors and my wife’s ancestors since I research both lines. I will also use this post as an index of each of the 52 ancestors, so you can always check back here to see a complete list as the year goes on.
