52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge

I’m entering the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks Challenge as posted by Amy Johnson Crow over at “No Story Too Small“.  I’m really excited to participate as it will give me a chance to flex and practice my writing skills and compile a great “book” on my ancestors by the end of this year!  The premise is that you choose one ancestor per week and write on a chosen topic regarding that ancestor.  The first week’s topic is “Fresh Start” – here goes and hope you enjoy!
