We’re on the home stretch now in the Family History Through the Alphabet Challenge, just a few more letters to go, and this week we’re up to the letter V.

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 ‘V’. So what can you think of that relates to your own family history? A person, an item, a memory, just something that starts with the letter V!

If you’re reading of this blog challenge for the first time, I know we’re nearing the end, but we would love for you to join in. You can participate with just a letter or two, or for the rest of the alphabet, or even start from the beginning. Just because we’re near the end doesn’t mean that you can’t start. Anyway whatever works for you.

And a little 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 ‘V’ 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 atalona@gould.com.au.
