NATIONAL FAMILY HISTORY MONTH... AUGUST 2021 - BLOGGING CHALLENGE

 



WELCOME

If you would like to know who is responsible, that is, I meant to say, who came up with the great idea to revive or NHFM blogging challenge, then it's all explained below. 

Genealife in Lockdown - NFHM Blogging Challenge

Hi everyone!

Who feels like another blogging challenge?

It's National Family History Month in August in the land down under called Australia.  You can read all about it here.

Some of us are in lockdown.  Some of us feel like we might be soon.   So, what better thing to do than revive our flagging blogs and share some family history stories about our favourite hobby.  Whether it's how we do it, what we're currently doing, who we're researching, why we love family history, where we research or when, let's blog as often as we can in August.

Our theme is Genealife in Lockdown.  You can be inspired by the pandemic vocabulary.  Words such as quarantine, isolation, distance, contacts, herd, vaccine, mask and lockdown might provide inspiration.  Or the month of August.  Or the Olympics!  We don't care.  Just blog!

We think blogging every Sunday in August would be an Olympic effort.  You could earn the Genea-ralissimo badge.............

Do take a few moments to read all of Alex's great post.. how could we resist? Will you earn one of these cute badges?


I will post the links for any NFHM blogs I come across, but despite good intentions, I'm sure to miss some, so please do add your own links to your blog in Comments below. There will be no particular order, I will just add your links (all together) as I come across them.

You can also add your link to the Facebook Group...
