I made it half way through the year, but now I need a break.
Doing all the research necessary for the ancestors I have written about to date has been quite time consuming and it has kept me away from doing other research, especially following any DNA trails that might be there.
It has been fun though, and I have learnt a lot about the people that lived before me. There are many more stories to discover, and I would love to do that, but it won’t be right now.
Following prompts to determine who to write about can be helpful but also a disadvantage. Sometimes the prompts help me think of a particular ancestor but often they won’t fit any of the stories I know about. This leads to more research which most often end with dead ends, meaning brick walls without any new stories.
I may take this challenge up at a later date, but for now, it’s time out.
Thanks for following 🙂
