I came across this challenge in June 2014, on the “No Story Too Small” blog. Since it was already half way through the year, I had only completed 28 by the end of 2014. There is a new challenge for 2015, so I will be completing 2 posts a week, one to finish off last year’s series, and one for this year.
These posts have been set up to detail some of the latest research I have done. You can also check What’s New to see what information has recently be added or updated in my family tree.
Located under the Categories section in the left sidebar, this can be used to find posts on a particular surname.
In researching my family history, I have certificates that turned out not to be related, and some where there were multiple unrelated entries on the page. I also have some newspaper clippings that included notices for unrelated people. This section gives details of these.
