Last year, I fell in love with the idea I saw here of blogging 52 ancestors in 52 weeks (fm the blog, "No Story Too Small") however, I don't have a blog (not sure I could keep up with a blog at this point in my life). So for this year, I decided to give myself a fun little 52 ancestor challenge of my own, Pinterest style. I'll start with those closest to me, then join in with the themes listed on the above blog. Lord Willing, in a year's time, I'll have 52 ancestors featured on this board!

52 Ancestors - week 52 - This week's theme is "Resolution."  I've been pondering on "genealogical New Year's resolution(s)."  I came up with two subjects I will be focusing on in 2016 (Lord Willing!):  Civil War and DNA.   With my son studying the Reconstruction Era and its effects on the South and all of its peoples  - it has sparked a renewed desire within me to further study the Civil War and my ancestors of that era.

52 Ancestors-2015-51- The theme for this week is "Nice."  I decided to use "nice" in a different way.  I chose to feature Charles Forsen/Forson/Fortson (1814-1886), my 3rd Great Grandfather...as in it would be *nice* to know more about him!  He seems to have led somewhat of a quiet life as far as I can tell - though he lived through some exciting times in history (Civil War for one!).
