Thank you so much for the shiny new badge :star_struck: & congratulations to everyone who also received their badges! :tada:

I know that I couldn’t personally reply to everyone’s posts, but they were all fantastic. I loved how everyone chose a different way to look into this for their entries. I honestly got lost in rabbit holes in my tree & then searched all kinds of names & finding some amazing discoveries about past ancestors & recent relatives… that I had no idea I was related to, but have been friends with for a while! So that was an exciting find too & both of us were in a complete state of :exploding_head:

So I am sorry that I didn’t personally respond to each entry, I got lost in my own genealogy & finds over the end of last week. Everyone did a great job & I think the next goal I would like to try is some divination which I have already started & been keeping up on my ancestor altar. :smiling_face:


Thanks for the new badge and congrats to everyone who got one. This one was tough for some, I know, so kudos to you for making it!


Thank you for the badge! This was one of the toughest challenges for me, because I didn’t know where to begin. But it was fun learning more about Pre-Christian Scotland and sharing what I was able to find.


Congratulations to everyone that got a new badge today! :headstone: I had a very interesting experience with this challenge, way more than what I shared in my entry, and it led me to some answers I wasn’t expecting! I’ll be working more on my own family tree using a different program that was recommended to me. I’m finally getting used to it, I think! :thinking:

I’m making my way through all of the entries today, too. I won’t get to reply to everyone but I will definitely be reading them all! There are so many entries, each one with different information and fun things to learn and read. I really enjoyed this challenge! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I’ve had so much fun reading everyone’s experiences! Congratulations to everyone!!


Thank you so much for the new badge and congratulations to everyone who got it! I still need to go back and read some of the entries, but this was a fun challenge.


You’re very welcome, everyone- and congrats again to all those who received a badge! :star2:

I fully agree with @Amethyst and @Kasandra that it was a tough theme for some folks. I have full respect for everyone who overcame any personal difficulties or encountered hard memories when exploring ancestor work and I hope that, despite the emotional aspect of it, that the work proved to be valuable and helpful in some way for you and your practice :pray::candle:

Thank you all once again (I can never say it enough!) for jumping in to join your coven and explore the theme- most especially to those who stepped out of their usual comfort zone to try something new or difficult. A huge props to you all! :heart::trophy::blush:

(Next challenge coming very soon! :soon::sparkles:)
