52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: Accepting the Challenge

Do you ever feel like your ancestors are calling out to you? Me, me, me, they clamor, each one yearning for his or her story to be told. I get that feeling a lot. That’s why I’m excited about Amy Johnson Crow’s new challenge, 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. She’s inviting bloggers and others who want to share their ancestors’ stories to link up with her blog, No Story Too Small. She's already had a great response to her idea.

I’m looking forward to participating by sharing short stories, photos, records, traditions, and snippets of family history throughout 2014. Because I could spend a lot of time just debating which ancestors to feature, I’ve decided to start at the beginning of my pedigree chart and more or less work my way through. Of course, I might take a detour here and there to highlight a more distant uncle, aunt, or cousin, but that's part of the fun.

I’m getting ready to share my first story, about my paternal grandfather and the restaurant he operated for half a century, with you tomorrow. I hope you'll like this new series. Stay tuned…
