Hey, guess what? We’ve made it half way through the Alphabet Challenge already. That went quick didn’t it! But even though we’re half way through the “Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge, if anyone new wants to join in please feel free to do so. Join us for one or two letters, or the rest of the alphabet, whatever works for you.

As with each week, the one rule of this Challenge is that you need to use the current letter of the week and connect it to someone or something relating to your family history, and this weeks letters is ‘M’. So a place, a person, or a thing relating to family history that starts with the letter M!

Now M seems an easy letter (at least compared to K) … so tell us what M relates to in your family history …

Just a reminder that you can view all the geneabloggers posts for each letter by going to that letter’s page, and scrolling to the bottom – they’re all listed there.

We will list all posts from fellow geneabloggers for the letter “M” below. If you’re a tweeter, and wish to contribute or just follow the topic, follow the #fhalphabet hashtag. On Facebook, you can comment under each letter’s post.

If you do have any queries regarding the Challenge, feel free to email Alona at alona@gould.com.au.
