We continue to work our way through the alphabet, and this week we’re up to Q in the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge. So do you have a special ancestor, a place, or a thing relating to your own family history that starts with the letter Q that’s you’d like to write about, the choice is entirely yours … and throughout this Challenge, we’ve had so many great topics already.

We’ve had everything from ships that ancestors emigrated on, to ancestors, streets, occupation, various records, towns, memorials, websites and a whole bunch more.

Even though we’re now over halfway through the Alphabet Challenge, we’d love for you to join us. Please feel free to join in for one or two letters, or the rest of the alphabet, whatever works for you.

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 “Q” 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.
