October Ancestry Challenge 2013

a day in the life of patootie

oct ancestry challenge-001Can you come up with 23 ancestors? Do you have family stories, photos, documents? Are you a history/genealogy/ancestry buff?

Then please join us for the October Ancestry Challenge 2013!!

The goal is to write 23 posts (Monday through Friday) in October about a different ancestor each day.

If you travel back in time so far that you only have a birth date and place, you can transform your story into a history lesson. As a history buff, I love reading about the clothing styles, means of transportation, and local flavor of the past, so be creative with your ancestors. Where did they live? What did they do? Where did they travel to and from? My great grandmother said about my great grandfather, “He had rosy cheeks and teeth as white as pearls.” Maybe white teeth were rare in 1900. 🙂

Let me know in the comments if you’d like to…
