A to Z April Challenge: Theme Reveal



In a few days the A to Z April Challenge will begin. 

This morning I discovered that TODAY, March 21, is supposed to be our big “Theme Reveal” day.  Theme Reveal?  Did we do that before? 

Because I dragged my feet in signing up, I’m already behind and the challenge hasn’t even begun. 

Theme.  Theme.  Actually I do have one:  In-laws and Out-laws. 

I’m dedicated to maintaining my focus on family history.  The first year I did just random stuff about my various family lines.  Last year I blogged about unusual names from my database of ancestors. 

I have quite a few photos of family friends, so I think it will fun – for ME at least – to study the various people who touched the lives of my ancestors.  Neighbors who came and went; coworkers; friends from church.  Anyone who played a part in shaping the lives of my forebears. 

I foresee some stumbling blocks and will need to be creative, I’m sure.  Q and X are always problematic, and no doubt will be true to form as I launch into “In-laws and Out-laws.”

See you in April!

  1. I enjoyed your Christian names theme very much last year Wendy, so look forward to finding out more about your In-laws and Outlaws. Like you, I only found out about this preview day by chance.

    1. Yes, you do! I need more outlaws who fit the alphabet. Why do all the good ones start with "C"??

  3. Whew...there for awhile I thought I was going to have to go this year alone. Glad you are in...I'd sure have missed you and your Jollett Family. How exciting...especially the 'Outlaws'....as you know I'm partial to those as my Family has more than it's share. All righty then....Let's Do This!!!

  5. I loved your series last year and can't wait for the newest installment. I wish I could dedicate myself to writing a post every day - I have a hard enough time doing one every week. Have fun!
