The prompt is “Favorite Photo.” Tell the story of the people, place, and event in a favorite photo.

I decided this was my favorite photo because it took all those ancestors I have been investigating to get to this point.

This was taken at the “Barcomb Bash” family reunion in July 2017. It was a wonderful celebration of family complete with a huge feast, games, a bounce house, and photo albums, then more food. My nephew hired a photographer to get candid shots and family groups. There are three generations here. The oldest is behind the rail. In some cases, it is hard to tell the middle and younger apart because some of these kids are nearly as tall as their parents.

 

Start ~ Week 1

My goal is to share some of the research I have been doing into family history. I signed up for 52 ancestors in 52 weeks https://www.amyjohnsoncrow.com/52-ancestors-in-52-weeks/. The premise: write about one ancestor each week this year. It could be a story, a photograph, a document, a pesky research problem — anything, as long as it involves one ancestor.

The challenge for week one is to start. So I created this blog to share my fantastic discoveries.

In the coming weeks. I will share photos, documents, and stories about my family.
