This will be my final post on the ‘Family History Through the Alphabet’, hence the title ‘The Finale’.

It has been an amazing a journey that we’ve been through, but serioulsy I couldn’t have done it, and it wouldn’t have been as fun without everyone who participated. That includes those who commented on Facebook and Twitter as well a the geneabloggers who took up the challenge.

Way back in April 2012 I came up with a vague idea that of something that would be fun, and after mulling it over for a few weeks – it became the ‘Family History Through the Alphabet’ Challenge. So in May we launched the Challenge, and I figured that it was an interesting idea and a few people might join in. But never in my wildest dreams did I figure that we’d have 36 geneabloggers (on 39 different blogs), from 5 different counties around the world contributing. I’ve been blown away.

I have read every post that has been written, and left comments on all that I could (not all blogs allowed me to leave comments – so if you didn’t receive any comments, that was why – it wasn’t that I wasn’t reading them). Anyway I have learnt so much from what has been written, it’s been a great learning experience, as well as being a heap of fun!

Anyway I wish to thank every one of the geneabloggers who took part, as they are what has made this a success. Some of our bloggers contribed once, others several, and some have made it from A right through to Z.
