2018 A-Z Challenge


During the month of April 2018, we joined the worldwide A-Z Challenge described at http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com/. On each day of the month, our members' told us something on the theme of People of My Place, and they have risen to that challenge with a variety of mini biographies of inhabitants and families from their individual one-place studies.
