52 Ancestors, 52 Weeks, 52 Themes

Earlier in the month, I posted about the 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks challenge, encouraging participants to explore something in our family tree each week, based on a weekly theme set by genealogist Amy Johnson Crow. At the time, I listed the themes for the month of January, but I realize I have not yet listed the themes for the entire year. So here are the weekly prompts, with links to the ones I’ve already covered. I’ll edit this to add links as more are posted.
