I didn't want to end the Challenge with just the 52nd post. Something extra was needed - like a bow on a package, a cherry on top of the sundae. How about a list befitting the end of the year? I have two to wrap up 2014:

Thank you for reading about my ancestors throughout the past year. I hope you'll continue to read my blog and remember to post a comment about your thoughts. Much appreciated!
