52 Ancestors Challenge - 52 New Blogs (for me to follow!)

Thanks to Amy Johnson Crow and her challenge to blog about 52 ancestors in 52 weeks, I have spent the last few hours reading blogs of some of the participants. (I did finish the laundry and the ironing, but my students might not be happy tomorrow- didn't review any of their projects!)

I've now subscribed to/followed 8 new blogs!!! I particularly enjoyed reading a tribute to one blogger's grandfather ( which served to remind me to share not "just the facts ma'am" but also the human side of our ancestors.

Of interest to others may be the post about finding your "Genealogy Score"

The idea is to arrive at a number that determines how "complete" your genealogy is.
Mine is a sad 5.86%. Here's the chart:

I could "spin" the numbers in my favor to make myself feel better. I could have 100% if I only include Generations 1-5!!

This is a pretty easy way to gauge progress from year-to-year. I hope I remember about this post 12 months from now.
