2014: 52 Weeks 52 Ancestors

image

My name is Jeanne Bryan Insalaco, owner and writer of 2014: 52 Week 52 Ancestor Stories. I Thank You Amy Johnson Crow for your 2014 motivation challenge – I’m back writing! I look forward to sharing them weekly with you so pull up a chair and sit a spell…

I originally began this first blog… just for these stories. I’ve made one post here on my current blog, just for links to those stories… making them more accessible for reading.

If you’d like to read more on Amy’s challenge on Ancestor Stories…..

http://www.nostorytoosmall.com/52-ancestors-in-52-weeks/

Amy Johnson Crow, author of the blog “No Story Too Small” issued the following challenge: “Have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor.

I accepted the challenge and completed it!

 Here are my 2014 stories – 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks.
