I have so little time to work on genealogy and family history that I don't want to set myself up for failure with goals that are too ambitious. However, I do think I can commit to participating in my friend Amy Coffin's latest series, 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History, where each Friday we'll be presented with a writing prompt for the upcoming week, to "write down the details of your own life," in Amy's words.
Amy had a great series last year (my first full year with this blog) called 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy, but unfortunately I was not able to participate in it as much as I would have liked. I seem to do better with personal family history stuff like the Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories and some of the GeneaBloggers daily blogging prompts like Wordless Wednesday (not-so-wordless in my case) and Sentimental Sunday - anything where I can post old photos!
I did the post for last week (a quick addition to a 1962 New Year's Day photo I'd already posted), and I'm working on the prompt for this week. I hope to have it up on January 11, the 38th anniversary of the event in some of the photos I'll be posting that day.
