Ancestor Approved Award

As some of you may know, I initiated the the Ancestor Approved Award back in March.  I had a big smile on my face last night when I learned that this award has come full circle back to Ancestors Live Here  thanks to TransylvaniaDutch.  It really meant a lot. He said I didn't have to pass it along to ten more bloggers, but now I have a chance to list ten things  I have learned about my ancestors that surprised, humbled, or enlightened me.

I was previously given this award by IrishEyes at 'On a Flesh and Bone Foundation': An Irish History on my other blog Lost Family Treasures and was only able to come up with eight things so I am pointing you there for those.

However because of yesterday I am able to come up with two more:
  1. I was surprised to learn yesterday that the daughter of my cousin (on mom's side) is also my third cousin twice removed on my dad's side.
  2. And I am also enlightened that said cousin has shown an interest in genealogy and family history (thank you WDYTYA!). It means a lot to know that someone from the next generation in my family will pursue genealogy research.
Thank you everyone for participating!


  1. Congrats on the award! That's funny. I had no idea how they began, so it was interesting to learn that you started it. I assume, anybody can begin one, is that correct? I was very lucky to have received 10 of your Awards. Therefore, I am thanking you too.

  2. Thank you Barbara, and your welcome!
