If you are participating in the 2020 52 Ancestors and/or 52 Photos challenges, please post here so we can make sure you get the participation badge.

You can also post here if you have reached a 13 in 13, 26 in 26 or 52 in 52 milestone so you can get those badges.

I would like to join the 52Ancestors challenge please
I would like to join 52 Ancestors and 52 photos
I would like to participate but can't work out how to comment on past topics (ie a fresh start)
I just linked two photos to the Professions photo category.  This was my first time participating.  It was difficult to find clear instruction on how to link the photos, but I finally succeeded.

May I add photos to earlier challenges?

Could I please get the participation badge.

My Stevens/Stephens ancestors all came West from Lafollette, Tennessee in 1907 (ish) to Leavenworth/Cashmere Washington. My greatgrandfatherStevens, greatgrandmother (Elizabeth Texas Chapman Stevens) my grandmother Nancy Louise Stevens Haskins (who was 12 at the time) and 12 more of her siblings. The men all came to work on the railroad.
can someone explain what this challenge is?  or provide the link for more info?  i might like to participate if able to.
ok. i think i found what i was looking for.  

i still have time to participate in week 5 challenge too right?  to count for continuous?  what about week 4?  it might be a day late or so now at this point.

I posted this as an answer, but I would really like this idea to be seen. Could we change the wording here? Instead of “Reply to this week’s...,” can we say “Answer this week’s...?”

You can join us any week of the year. Anyone who participates gets the 2020 "52 PHOTOS"badge. There are special achievement badges for those who meet challenge milestones.

To participate:

  1. Reply to this week's 52_PHOTOS G2G post, and...
I posted a little late here, but I would like to get the participation badge. I have posted links to my blogs for each week this year so far.
I am on Week 7 of the 52 Photos contest. How do I get a participation badge?
For my first time to participate, I would like to offer two persons having the same name.  Or almost the same.  One of my first family members to settle in southern Alabama was Stephen Jones, who moved there from a suburb of Atlanta.  In almost the same year (circa 1825) another Stephen Jones moved to southern Alabama from near Atlanta.  This Stephen sometimes included a middle initial T for Thomas. The Stephen without a T moved to Marengo county.  Stephen with a T was a county or so over.  To confuse subsequent genealogists, both Stephens married an Elizabeth.  As a result,  those of us who accepted hints from frequently have the wrong wives, wrong times of birth and death, and wrong names for the children of the Stephen Jones family.  The 1840 census does give both households, but, of course, for that year no children's names were offered.

I started the 52 Ancestors and Photo Challenges two weeks ago. I think it's a great way to break down what can be an enormous and daunting task into small, manageable chunks. I've made weekly notes on my calendar!

I would like to participate in the 52 photos and just recently joined////Never mind. I cannot understand how to upload or post photos after spending 30 minutes reading and trying to follow the directions.
by L Chiovare G2G Crew (320 points)
L. Chiovare, the photo that you want to share has to be on one of your profiles (or free spaces) of a person that has a privacy that is available to the public. That is very important.

Once you have the picture there, all you have to do, is right click with your mouse on the picture, and then hit "copy image".

Then come back to this page (which you need to have open) and click control and V, and it will place your picture in the comment section.

I hope you can follow my instructions.  If you can't please contact me, and I will try to help you more. It would be a shame for you not to join the fun with the rest of us.  This is a great competition to be in.
