I saw this over at Craig Manson's Geneablogie. It is a great idea and a wonderful way to get all those surnames out to the blogosphere.
Here are the directions directly from Craig:
List the surnames you are researching and the general localities. Then tell the names of your “Most Wanted Ancestors,” that is, the ones you most want to find behind that brickwall.
Thomas MacEntee over at Destination: Austin Family added the following formatting information:
...use ________ Surname hoping this will allow more people using Google and other search engines to find my post. Also I am using _______ County for the same reasons. (I will be using this formatting style as well.)
So here goes....

Most Wanted Ancestors
Ada Adelia Perimon - my great-grandmother. She was born on 2 November 1870 in Van Buren, Crawford County, Arkansas. She married Williams Henry Perdue about 1892 (place unknown). She died 4 March 1941 in Fannin County, Texas and is buried in the New Salem Cemetery, Fannin County, Texas with her husband. She has no marker however. I've previously posted all the records I have for Ada here.
