April A-Z Challenge – X Y & Z

April 30, 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.

I am cheating and combining X Y and Z posts as they all have one thing in common – I have no ancestor in my family history database for these letters.

Instead of trying to think of some fancy way that I can post about these letters, I am waving the white flag again as I did with the letter V.

Sorry to disappoint but I have no post at all for these letters.

    Hi Jennifer. My name is Merrilyn – daughter of John – grandaughter of Arthur and Emily. Just found your blog. I am also researching our family.

    • Which surname are you from? Just trying to place you exactly in the family tree

    Sorry just noticed that I said dad dropped the Taylor. Of course I meant Lloyd. Dad was John Hartley Taylor and mum Mavis Lena.
