Week 14 of the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge brings us up to the letter ‘N’.

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 ‘N‘. So a place, a person, or a thing relating to family history that starts with the letter N! The choice is entirely yours … and throughout this Challenge, we’ve had so many great topics already.

Even though we’re now halfway 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. We’d love for you to join us.

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 “N” 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.
