52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks

Welcome to Kinfolks first ever blog - 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks


This first blog is a great opportunity to share my family history research with my family, friends, and potential clients. My personal family history has been a wonderful journey of discovery. I've learned a lot about the people who came before me and I'm still learning about how I came to be the person that I am. Our ancestors decisions influence who we eventually become sometimes in very small ways and sometimes in very significant ways.


I am taking "The 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks" challenge issued by certified genealogist and librarian Amy Johnson Crow. This is a brilliant way for family history researchers amateur and professional to thoroughly examine their many many years of research and share it with the world!


This challenge will help me as I continue to pursue my genealogy certification and allow me to share some of my work with my family and friends.  It is my hope that they will be inspired to learn more about their family history, lineage, and share their legacy with their children.


Thank you for joining me on this 52 week journey of discovery! Your questions, comments, and feedback are welcomed and appreciated.


Challenge Accepted!  #52ancestors
