Not happenin' this August!
August Ancestor Anecdote Challenge is my way of giving Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors the proverbial 'Shot In the August Arm' and get back on track. Yep, I've fallen off the Georgia wagon a bit this past month of July, and a challenge is what I need to get back on the Buckboard.
I haven't finished writing about the 'Second Generation' Georgia Ancestors yet over on Tracks of My Georgia Ancestors Genealogy Blog. I still lack 3xGreat Aunt Lucy, her brother's Hiram and Joseph and her father, my 3x's Great Grandfather Ichabod. Their stories are in the works and need to be told in line with the rest of the Second Generation as per 'blogging order format'.
Which brings me to Augusts' Challenge here on CollectInTexas Gal.
During the later part of the 1800's, the US Census records enumerated more information on individual family members vital statistics. This along with wider circulation and reporting by newspapers, courthouse records and historical event documentation being digitized and made available online, has given Family Genealogist, like me, a wealth of information in the telling of our Family Histories.

I'll share mine with you and some of the ways I found out about their lives.
