#A-ZChallenge – Letter U

April 28, 2017

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is a challenge put out to bloggers to publish a post from A-Z every day in April, except for Sundays. April 1 is A, and so on throughout the month. Bloggers can post randomly or on a theme. The theme I have chosen is ‘My Ancestors’. I used this same theme for the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge in 2015. This time the ancestors posted about will mostly be more distant members of the family. Hopefully, when combined this will form a full picture of my family history.

U is for…..??

I’ve been procrastinating for a couple of days about this post. As a result I am a couple of days behind now so need to catch up. The reason for the procrastination is the letter U. I don’t have a single ancestor with a surname starting with the letter U. I don’t even have an ancestor with a christian name starting with the letter U. With almost 2000 people in my family tree, I was such I would be able to find someone to post about.  But no, there is not a letter U to be seen.

So, as much as I hate to do this, I’ve decided to wave the white flag on this one, and say no can do.



  1. The names that start with U in my tree are “UNKNOWN” and I have too many of them. Most just sit there untouched and little looked at. I have other that have had much research done but still they mock me. Oh how they mock me. I have enjoyed reading your name challenge and best of luck in your family research.

    • I do have lots of Unknowns in my tree. I tend to ignore them saving them for when I have more time. If ever! Thanks so much for your comments, will look forward to visiting your genealogy blog,
