This week's challenge is a local shop. This can be any type of shop that existed in your parish. It can be a shop that continues to serve the community or a shop that existed at a particular period of time. The shop can include any family that was associated with it (which may mean creating an Ancestor Profile or two around it) as well as a Building Chronicle, or even a Timeline Event as to when the shop opened, when it closed or a particular event associated with it. You can use the 1901 and 1911 Censuses to check out the family names that were associated with the shop or the trade directories that are available online through Ancestry. The examples below will assist you with creating your Chronicle for this challenge. We will share these Chronicles with all our members who may also use the prompt to add their own Chronicles.
Chronicles Challenge Week 3 - Shop
Our Weekly Chronicles Challenge is an open invitation to any of our members to create Chronicles around their family history and local connection to a particular parish. We invite anyone to add an XO Chronicle using the weekly prompts for guidance and assistance with creating XO Chronicles. We will share these Chronicles on our website for all to enjoy. Often, there are other members who are also researching the same family or local area and this can lead to sharing and collaboration. Enjoy!
