This year, Amy Johnson Crow has issues a new 52 weeks blogging challenge:
The challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor. Not only should this get me blogging more, but also to take a deeper look at some of the people in my family tree.
My approach: I have made this a Tuesday Theme, and, use it to enhance my WikiTree ancestor profiles. That is, focus on a different ancestor on my WikiTree list of profiles, each week (include possibly adding new profiles), Great idea! Thanks to Randy Seaver's post for bringing this to my attention!
Note: Third shift (not change) to approach. Beginning with #25, I will be doing direct ancestor couples.

For an early "compact" family history of this family, you enjoy visiting this web site:
I have written a lot about this family, over the past 20 years. Put any of the names in the Search Box, upper right, and take a peak, if interested.
See my recent historical fiction family saga stories that relates some of the family stories:
Weston Wagons West - Ep. J16 - The Kinnicks and the Westons chose to move further west as well.
What fun! ;-)
