I’m taking the Ancestry 52 week Ancestor Challenge; the challenge to write stories every week about my ancestors.
My name is Jeanne Bryan Insalaco, owner and writer of 52 Week 52 Ancestor Stories.
I Thank You Amy Johnson Crow for your motivation challenge – I’m back writing! I look forward to sharing them weekly with you so pull up a chair and sit a spell with me…
If you’d like to read more on Amy’s challenge on Ancestor Stories…..
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.”
Not only should this get me blogging more often, but also to began taking a deeper look at more of the ancestors in my family tree.”
About me: Years ago I was more involved in family history, but since I began working full time, I went back to my hand held projects of knitting and felt Christmas ornaments, and my more detailed family history took a backseat. I also now have have five granddaughters who have kept me busy knitting hats, mittens and leg warmers. This challenge has given me a way to reunite with my family history, and set up this blog so my stories and information can be shared with family and friends. I hope you will find them of interest.
I hope my stories will inspire others to begin their own research into their family history – as it is very rewarding – but addicting. It can feel overwhelming at times, but if you take one step at a time, all the pieces to the puzzle will fall into place. You will begin to feel a connection to your ancestors; their history needs to be preserved. Don’t lose those family stories – they are what keeps your family alive. Remember “everyone has a story!”
