My 4th entry in Amy Johnson Crow’s “52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks” family history blogging challenge for 2015.
The challenge: have one blog post each week devoted to a specific ancestor. It could be a story, a biography, a photograph, an outline of a research problem — anything that focuses on one ancestor.
Amy’s 2015 version of this challenge focuses on a different theme each week.
The theme for Week 4 is: Closest to your birthday — Not too much to think about here. What ancestor has the birthday closest to yours?
My 4th ancestor is my dad’s youngest brother, who I will simply refer to as Uncle Robledo instead of by his full name since he is still living.
This is a brief post, because I have never been close to my uncle and have not seen him in years. But, we share the same birthday, so I do think of him every year on my own birthday.
