A to Z 2016 Summary

survivor-atoz [2016] v2Whew!! Well we’ve all survived yet another A to Z challenge and what an experience it’s been. There are so many brilliant blogs out there and I was pleased to find this year how many fellow geneabloggers were participating. I also discovered some that were new to me. You can see them on this Sunday Summary list. It was fun to see how differently people responded to the challenge with their theme.

My theme in 2016 was how to pursue an interest in family history/genealogy. Hopefully it’s helped a few people along the way and not frightened anyone off.

Thanks to inspiration from my friend Maria from Wishful Linking Family History Blog, I’ve put together my A to Z list here.  If you don’t already follow Maria’s Genies Down Under podcasts, do yourself a favour and sign up…lots of learning and fun.
