Another week means another letter in the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge, and we are now up to the letter ‘K’.

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 K), 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 letter has brought out so many wonderful topics that people have thought of: family members, websites, photographic montages, occupations, memorabilia and ephemera, family stories, emigration, genealogy programs and apps … and OH SO MUCH MORE! If you have some spare time, read the blog posts. You can find them  all at the bottom of each letters entry.

If anyone has any queries, please feel free to write to me at

So, without further ado it’s now time for ‘K’.
