Week 1/52 and Week 2/52: 52 Weeks of Genealogy

I just learned of this genealogy (family history) game.  Since I enjoy working our genealogy, I thought it would be fun to participate.

Week 1 - How Did You Get Your Name?  I am named after my maternal grandmother (my mom's mom).  Her name was Annette Marie and so is mine.  Grandma was born in Norway in 1904.   I believe that this is part of the old naming tradition in Norway (not that my family had been following that tradition).

This is my high school graduation day with my grandparents
including the grandmother I'm named after.

Week 2 - What Toys Did You Play With?  I don't remember really having any favorite toy.  I did NOT like dolls!


  1. What fun and what a neat way to learn more about our blogging buddies! I think that's cool that you are named after your grandmother. I have my mom's middle name. :)

  2. I have enjoyed your blog. Thanks for playing along with my 52 Weeks of Genealogy. -Sarah www.tmgenealogy.com
