The Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge is nearing the end, but we’re not there yet … still a few more letters to go, and this week brings us to the letter T.

So do you have a special ancestor, a place, or a document, an heirloom or something else that relates to your own family history that starts with the letter T that you’d like to write about.

Throughout this Alphabet Challenge, we’ve had everything from ships that ancestors emigrated on, ancestors, streets, occupations, attributes, various records, towns, memorials, websites and a whole bunch more.

Even though we’re nearing the end of 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 ‘T’ 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
