The weeks continue to fly by, as they always do (except when you’re a kid),  which means we are now up to the letter ‘J’ in the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge.

If you’ve just discovered our Alphabet Challenge, please feel free to join in. There’s no need to start at the beginning – and we’d love for your to join us. You can read more about it here … but in short we are looking for genealogists worldwide who are bloggers, Facebookers, and/or Tweeters to join us. All you need to do is use the current letter for the week (this week’s letter is J), and connect it to someone, something, or a topic relating to your family that you’d like write about. Sound like fun? It is …

Each week/letter brings out so many wonderful topics that people think of – 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

So, it’s time for ‘J’, lets bring it on!!
