52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: IN THE PAPER

Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is IN THE PAPER

  1. I forget to look for all the possibilities in newspapers, especially birthdays and military. It's a great idea to compile a post like this, Colleen.

  2. I agree with Nancy - a post like this serves much like an index to your ancestors.
