My Ahnentafel

It’s almost the new year and time again for resolutions. Perhaps you’ve attempted Thomas MacEntee’s Genealogy Do-Over or Amy Johnson Crowe’s ’52 Ancestors’ blog prompts or for the super ambitious, the Genealogy Photo a Day challenge? In the past 5 years, I believe I have started all of these — but finished none.

Randy Seaver’s recent blog post, Dear Randy, How Do You Make that Descendant List in Your ’52 Ancestors’ Posts?, prompted me to review my blogging to see how far I got with blogging about my ancestors.

To start, I used RootsMagic to create an Ahnentafel chart showing my ancestors. Then I searched my blog to see what I have written about those ancestors.

I’m happy to admit that I have successfully blogged about my 3rd and 4th generation ancestors. However, this review also shows that I wasn’t successful with my 5th generation, all of whom I have already researched.

In my defense, I have a LOT of blog posts about my research of the various Crawford families in early Lincoln, Madison and Garrard counties, Kentucky. However, I haven’t done as well with my own ancestors. I guess one of my goals for 2021 should be to create blog posts for each of these 5th generation ancestors. Hopefully, that is one goal that I can accomplish!
