52 Ancestors : Week # 38 – On The Map

I’m participating in Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge. The writing prompt for this week is On The Map. Every once in a while Ancestry releases updated Ethnicity Results for our DNA tests. I thought that was quite fitting. In case you are thinking, wait a second…how is it possible that my DNA could change?!…

52 Ancestors : Week # 34 – Chosen Family

I found this quote just on a Google search, so I’m not sure who to attribute it to, but it sure fits. This week’s writing prompt is a perfect one for my family. When I think about the above quote, I feel like I am surrounded by chosen family. Adoption The first thing chosen family…

52 Ancestors : Week # 30 – The Old Country

This week for Amy Johnson Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge the writing prompt is The Old Country. When I looked up the definition it states the native country of a person who has gone to live abroad. My Family Now for myself, I have lived in Canada my entire life, but I suppose the Old Country…

52 Ancestors : Week # 24 – Handed Down

The writing prompt for Amy Johnson-Crow’s 52 Ancestors Challenge this week is HANDED DOWN. Looking around the house, I don’t have a whole lot of treasures that have been handed down to me. However, the things I do have I want to ensure that they are handed down to the next generation, if they are…

52 Ancestors : Week # 16 – Air

Well, since I can’t seem to think of anything for the writing prompt of air, I’ll go with something that rhymes with air – Claire. It’s also a perfect week because yesterday, April 13th would have been Grammie’s 100th Birthday!! She was born in New York City 100 years ago. Claire Joan Lippman Perry 1920-2006…

52 Ancestors : Week # 13 – Nearly Forgotten

On a personal note, it’s been a rough couple of weeks here at the home front. I’m a wee bit emotional as a result, so it’s been a challenge to concentrate on this week’s topic for me. Although, I suppose it would be a good distraction from everything going on especially this COVID pandemic. This…

52 Ancestors : Week 2 – Favourite Photo

The writing prompt for Week # 2 is Favourite Photo. How can I possibly pick one favourite photo?! I don’t think that I can. I have so many photos that it could take weeks to go through them all. Around the house though (and easily accessible) here are a few of my favourite ones! Family…
