Years and years of researching, putting the tiny pieces together, untangling the twisted, entwined branches of our family’s history
We’ve worked hard on our genealogy. We’ve made some fantastic discoveries.
But what do you actually do with it?
Who actually gets to read all about the life’s of the people who gave us life, who fought wars, suffered famine, survived the workhouse, escaped poverty, discovered new lands.
Those humbling discoveries don’t do much good just sitting in your bookcase, in folders, on an ancestry tree or in files on computer.
That’s where 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks comes in to play.
After reading an article by Amy Johnson Crow (amyjohnsoncrow.com) our minds raced with the possibility of sharing little snippet into our ancestors life’s. Hours later this blog was born.
As with ours and our ancestors life’s, the pages of life are empty ones, waiting patiently to be filled with our journey to discovering who we really are, where we came from and where we are going.
Our ancestors lived so we could live, they fought hardships so we can have a better, more comfortable life, a life with power at our fingertips.
Those names scribbled on paper or typed into a tree, they are part of us, our host, our DNA, our blood and our spirits.
They should not be forgotten so each week for the next 52 weeks, we hope to share a snippet into the life of one of our ancestors, letting their story’s once again come to life, remembering them and letting them live on in our memories, in our pages of life.
