If you’ve just discovered our Alphabet Challenge, you can read about it here … but in short we are looking for genealogists worldwide who are bloggers, Facebookers, and/or Tweeters to join in us in taking the Family History Through the Alphabet challenge. All you need to do is use the current letter for the week (this week’s letter is I), and connect it to someone, something, or a topic relating to your family that you’d like write about.
As we’re now 9 weeks into the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge (really, where’d that time go), that brings us up to letter ‘I’. I won’t repeat all the topics that people have been writing about for past letters – but if you wish to read the blogs, just go to the bottom of each letters post, and you’ll find hyperlinks to them all.
If anyone has any queries, please feel free to write to me at email@example.com.
I’m really looking forward to what ‘I’ means in your family history … so do tell!
