I realised, belatedly, that I listed 19 hymn writers for the first Hymn Writers challenge. Normally, I try to stick to 14 people per challenge, partly to keep a challenge from being so hard that it discourages people, partly to make comparisons between how complete each challenge is a little bit more fair, but mostly because, if I go past 14 people, I hit the size limit on G2G messages. (Apparently, tables use up a lot of characters!)
So, partly because of that imbalance, and partly because I have received suggestions for still more hymn writers, what I'm going to do is pull five of the hymnwriters who are still unconnected and have no great-grandparents listed from the first challenge, add nine new ones to bring the list up to fourteen people, and list them here in this challenge.
The rules are the same as for Quest for Great Grandparents: Hymn Writer Edition - Verse 1. Play on!
Note: Some people in this challenge were born early enough that they will need WikiTreers with the Pre-1700 badge, or even the Pre-1500 badge, to work on them.
This challenge is now in 17th place in terms of percent complete, at 13.4%. In terms of great-grandparents still to find, it's in 16th place, at 97. The next challenge to catch in both terms is Quest for Great-Grandparents: Archivist Edition, at 18.8% and 91 great-grandparents to find.
Thank you, Sherrie!
This challenge is now in 14th place in terms of percent complete, at 22.3%. In terms of great-grandparents still to find, it's in 13th place, at 87. Ironically enough, the next challenge to catch in both terms is Quest for Great-Grandparents: Hymn Writer Edition - Verse 1, at 25% complete and with 84 great-grandparents still to find.
This challenge is now in 11th place, both in terms of percent complete, at 29.5%, and in terms of great-grandparents still to find, at 79. The next challenge to catch in both terms is Quest for Great-Grandparents: France Edition, at 39.8% complete and with 77 great-grandparents still to find.
Sherrie, I don't count greats with Unknown last names. Sorry.
Thank you, Eef!
Coenraad van Houten is connected, but has no great-grandparents listed on WikiTree yet.
Thank to Donna (Tucker) Baumann for connecting William Henry Monk to the main tree. He still needs great-grandparents, but at least he's been connected now.
