52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks - Week 52 - Resolution

The 52 Ancestors prompt for this week is "Resolution". It's the time of year when many people look ahead and make resolutions. Is there an ancestor you plan to concentrate on researching next year? (Maybe that brick wall ancestor?) 

It's hard to believe we're on the last week of 2018! First of all, much thanks to Amy Johnson Crow for the 52 Ancestors prompts. I didn't have as much time as I'd like to spend on the blog this year and they helped keep me going.

I've posted previously on my 2x great-grandparents and where I'm at with research on each of them. I have more mysteries to solve on my maternal side, so plan to concentrate on that next year. Most of them are from Queen Anne's County, MD and the surrounding counties.
2x great-grandparents for my Councill and Sparks families
For my Councill and Sparks lines, I plan to concentrate on the Meredith and Godwin families. I have some DNA matches that might help with these lines, so plan to delve into that a bit more.
2x great-grandparents for my Willis and Chilcutt families
For the Willis and Chilcutt lines, I plan to concentrate on George Chilcutt. My brick wall for most of my Queen Anne's County lines is finding the evidence to link my direct ancestors with the research others have done on these families.

#52Ancestors is a series of weekly family history prompts developed by Amy Johnson Crow.
