I simply realized there are solely 7 extra posts left on this problem! The place did the time go? Thanks once more to Amy Johnson Crow for giving a nudge in the suitable path to remain disciplined and targeted with the ancestry analysis. I am half a gaggle of genealogists on Wikitree which have been sharing 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks posts in a G2G discussion board. It has been enjoyable forming that little group. Wikitree founder Chris Whitten and Eowyn have given us the added incentive of receiving a badge if we full all 52 weeks and supply a minimum of one ancestor or relative for every weekly immediate. Because of the problem I’ve new folks and sources so as to add to the communal tree (and a few corrections to make with new sources) when this problem is over. It is not too late to affix the Wikitree group. Every thing on the positioning is all the time 100% free. In the event you been collaborating you may add your ancestor and their data here. There are hyperlinks to enter every week’s immediate within the higher proper hand nook.
I am focusing one in every of my paternal 2nd nice grandfathers this week, primarily as a result of I’ve 3 pictures of him with totally different facial hair. It is a good reminder to take numerous images of our males as a result of they give the impression of being so totally different with and with out beards and moustaches! My 2nd nice grandfather was William Uriss Little (1840 – 1929). I am going to publish them in chronological order. I am approximating the 12 months primarily based on different folks within the images. The first is from a photograph of the Little household earlier than my nice grandmother was married in 1899.
William Uriss Little
The 2nd will need to have been a while earlier than my nice uncle was born, as a result of he isn’t within the picture. My grandmother seems to be about 4 -5 years previous.

The infant within the third picture is my father who was born in 1925. I am guessing he was about 18 months previous, however it’s onerous to inform as a result of he was all the time a extremely tall boy!

Archibald Beverly Park III – circa 1927
Judging from these images my 2nd nice grandfather was a dapper Dan. It seems as if he was carrying the boys’s fashions of the day and altered his look once in a while. My aunt remembers that he was a banker, though I can not discover documentation to assist that but. The censuses taken through the years he would have been employed do not checklist occupations as a query. In later years he’s enumerated as a “gentleman”. Cannot argue with that!
