Motivation Monday - 2014 Family History Writing Challenge - A Promise to Myself

Last year I committed to the challenge by pledging to write 250 words daily during the month of February. The word count was not the important part to me, it was the ability to do it daily and complete the challenge. I did it!  I completed the challenge and posted my writing as blog posts every day in February.

This year I am doing the challenge in a different way.  I plan to write 300 to 500 words per day but this writing will not appear as blog posts.  I want to develop a story line more detailed that I would use for a blog.  I will do several biographical portraits using a timeline as an outline.  There will be additional research involved in adding details to the genealogical facts I have determined.

My first selection is my Grandfather Adolf Halfdan Hansen, who immigrated from Norway when he was 11 and one half years old.
