Ok. I admit it. I snap my fingers when I research the Adams Family branch of my tree. Yes, I am adorkable.
I've decided to participate in the 52 Ancestors challenge by Amy Johnson Crow as a means of maybe moving forward in my genealogy research. If nothing else, this challenge will give me a fresh start on years and years of research that doesn't seem to go anywhere. Impulsively, I decided to focus my attention on the Adams branch. There are a grand total of 44 people with the surname "Adams" in my tree. Oops. That's ok, though. Really, I'm focusing on the people that my grandmother came from.
I'm glad I picked this branch. There are two very big brick walls in this branch: Sallie Lou Green and Mary Frances Cornstubble. Maybe with a focused study, I can finally break through these walls.
It's funny. Just looking at the tree on Ancestry, to remind myself of the people in this branch, shows me there are a lot more hints (hello, little shaking leaves!) than there use to be. I have to rein in my tendency to start wherever looks the most interesting. This is another fresh start. I need to learn to be a little more methodical in my research. Time will tell! No matter what, I'm sure I'll have lots of geeky fun!
