Week #4 #NFHM2017 Blogging Challenge - Power without Glory


Well here we are!  We've made it to the last week of the blogging challenge in National Family History Month.  

Have you learned some more about  your ancestors and their lives? Have you unearthed some new sources or facts that you didn't know before?  Have you made interesting connections or found new blogs in the process? I hope the experience has been rewarding for you.  Here's the last challenge...

Frank Hardy's novel Power without Glory covers a wide range of notorious characters from criminals to Archbishops and politicians, wrestlers to gamblers and everyone else in between.  

One of the themes is conscription during WW1 but you can interpret the title as broadly as you like.  

Were your ancestors powerful in some way? Legitimately or  not.  

Did they have a stoush with the authorities or strong political beliefs? Lets hear their story.

By the way, speaking of stories, have you seen the 31 Links in a chain page on QFHS website here? It's a collection of family history stories by members in honour of #NFHM2017.  What a great idea.

Last but not least, a big thank you to you for participating in this activity for National Family History Month. It's been great to hear your stories and I look forward to seeing more !

Don't forget to link your story below with the Mr Linky Widget will you?

Alex, this is my post for Week 4. Once again I can't seem to master Mr Linky.
