I know many of my readers are new to blogging, so I thought I would share some posts from other bloggers taking part in the #52ancestors. Their posts are varied, some not even the traditional type of family history research post. Many vary in their style of writing – some sound like you are talking face to face with the blogger.
This first group of posts are from comments left on Amy Johnson Crow’s Facebook page
- Myra is looking for her 105 year old 5x great grandpa
- Jan has a very easy reading style and has not mentioned any dates in her post
- Marian looked at which grandparents met their grandchildren or vice versa.
- Bernie included memories from other family members
- Kristin includes lots of photos and memories
- Louise makes great use of Trove to fill in the story of her ancestor
- Cindi includes an image of life expectancy through the ages
- Julie looks at longevity as staying in the same state for a long time
- Roberta looks at information leapfrogging through generations
- Susan looked at the oldest document she had as part of longevity
This second group of posts are from members of the alumni group for UTAS DipFamHist
- Shane has bolded those links that take you to more information on the web
- Margaret includes a verse written by an ancestor
- Heather (Bleggy) has a way with words and I notice her post has been included in Friday Fossicking
- Claire relates to something mentioned in a lecture this week regarding life expectancy
- Darlene has divided her post into some interesting sub headings to make it easier to read
- Marcia looks at longevity as being a long road in research
- Claire is using lots of sources in her post – great that readers can then follow her research links
