#52ancestors Post #52: The Last One

The writing prompt for #52ancestors during this last week of the year is Resolution. I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions, but I will make a few related to genealogy as I have some definite goals. Here are a few of my goals for 2019. 

#1. Find more information about Mayflower descendant, Peter Reed. I would like to prove my 5th great-grandfather, Benjamin Reed is his father. 

#2. Post more of the information found in Marguerite Cook Clark's wonderful collection. 

#3. Learn more about the siblings of George L. Giddens and the siblings of Mitchell Giddens in hopes of finding more family and family documents or photos. 

I will not be participating in #52ancestors in 2019. I enjoyed #52ancestors when I posted in 2014. Posts involved 52 Hairston ancestors. I learned much and enjoyed the research. 

This year (2018), while following writing prompts, some posts were about family I had not previously pursued (a good thing). Many required out-of-the-box thinking (a good thing). Other posts had very little substance as they needed more thought and research (not so good).  I learned that I did not need the writing prompts to post regularly.  However,  if you need motivation and ideas for posts #52ancesters is an excellent way to start.
