DNA. It’s amazing how three letters could so completely change the field of genealogy. What’s a discovery you’ve made with DNA? What about a brick wall that DNA might help break down?
Brick walls—we all have them. This would be a good week to write down what you know about your brick wall problem. (Sometimes just writing about it can help!) You could write about an ancestor who used to be a brick wall. Or get creative—maybe an ancestor who was a bricklayer?
This week should be great… because that’s the theme! It could be someone many generations back (like a great-great-great-great-great-grandfather), an ancestor who did something “great,” or someone who was great in some other way.
The birds are singing, so what better time for the theme of “Music.” Any musicians in the family? How about someone who loved music and dancing? What about someone who makes you think of a song?
This week’s theme is “Loss.” Loss is universal. There are many ways to explore this theme, whether it’s the loss of a loved one, a livelihood, freedom, or even the loss of records where an ancestor lived.
