March 29 — Create a free Fold3 (formerly Footnote) Memorial Page or a Genealogy Trading Card at Big Huge Labs for a female ancestor. Some of you may have created your own card back in September 2009 following Sheri Fenley’s post over at The Educated Genealogist. This time, the card is for your ancestor.
The ancestor I've chosen to make a Genealogy Trading Card for is my maternal great grandmother Ophelia Jones Bryant. Her image inspired me to begin the journey of discovering my ancestors. I send a thank you out to my grandmother Mary Horton, her daughter, as well as my great grandmother up in heaven. There was a beautiful portrait of Ophelia that hung in my grandmother's bedroom when I was a child that I would gaze at and wonder -- Who was this lady? What was she like?
