A-Z Challenge 2016: A is for And We're Off!

http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com
The fifth year for this blog in the A-Z Challenge.  In case you were unaware: the A-Z Challenge is held every year during April.  Participating blog authors choose topics for brief posts EVERY DAY, taking the alphabet for their writing prompts.  It's such fun! This blog is devoted to genealogy, so  my A-Z theme has always been genealogy in some form or another.  For the past couple of years I have taken great pleasure in researching genealogical trivia for my posts (such as C is for Corpse Way, E is for Englishry, F is for Farthing, I is for Infant Mortality).  This year will be no different.

Just some of the topics I have lined up: O is for Outlawry, R is for Recusant Rolls, T is for Toleration Act. It seems that the further you dig, the more there is to discover.  Originally, this blog was meant for recording any anecdotes of my own ancestors.  Well, I've written down all the ones I can actually remember, so perhaps now is the time to change the focus of this blog.  Oh, I don't mean away from genealogy - but I have enjoyed the 'genealogy trivia' so much that maybe that will feature more heavily from now on.

Anyway, back to the A-Z Challenge - how about a graphic which tells you all about when I am supposed to be writing?

  10. Ros, I have been discovering that you have many hidden talents ! This challenge tempted me late last night while reading yours on the kindle so I guess I am kind of "in" . Good heavens, I have not blogged in earnest in 2 years so it will be a real challenge.

    1. All the best, then! Have you chosen yourself a theme yet? :o) (at a guess, it might have something to do with genealogy LOL)
