Hello everyone, and welcome to Week “O” of the Family History Through the Alphabet.

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 you 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 O), 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 have come up with, the creativity and been inspiring. I won’t repeat all the topics that people have written about here – 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 alona@gould.com.au.


So, it’s time for ‘O’, so lets do it!!
