52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks; 12 Surnames

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. This is the 12th week of this challenge and the topic for this week is ‘12’


52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: 12, Surnames



Here are 12 surnames that are close to my heart; 12 surnames that I have been researching for a long time. With each surname are a couple of my direct ancestors with that surname. The links will lead you to more information on the names.

I love simple lists like this, Colleen. I always hope to find one of my surnames. But not this time!
