The trouble with the 52 Ancestors challenge that I wrote about last week is that the minute I think I have selected a good candidate from my tree, I look up what information I have, and then think, well, I’ll just look up one more thing. Hours later, I haven’t written anything and I have added to my massive pile of potential sources that need to be evaluated and documented.
What’s more, the minute I try to find a picture of that person, I get lost again in the loosely catalogued collection of digital family pictures, only to conclude that the really good one I remember hasn’t been scanned yet. And won’t be until it’s found in the vaguely organized containers of about 6000 photos I inherited when my mother moved.
So it will have to wait for another day.
