52 Ancestors – Week 30 – Easy

I really like this prompt easy. I do not think tracing any line is specifically easy. Especially if you are trying to dot all your i’s and cross all your t’s. I will say that one of the most straight forward lines for me to trace is my Grandpa Earl’s family the Witherwax/Weatherwax line. To be honest the name is Weatherwax, our branch is the oddball branch using Witherwax and there is a story about that, more like family drama.

There is a wonderful genealogy by Wayne E. Weatherwax that documents the Weatherwax family from when they came to America and their history. It isn’t perfect but it give you all the tools to find the facts. Also due to the fact David Weatherwax is only my 4th Great-Grandfather it isn’t that far to trace back since this line is all male.

So I would say this one is one of my easier lines to trace though I am all about the stories our ancestors have to tell us.

Honest question here do you collect the names or do you look for stories also?
