About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.

April 28 X is for X


I found that trying to do something that started with X hard.   So I thought that I would do X .

X is the 24th letter of the English alphabet.  This poor little letter  starts the least amount of words, in the dictionary. I could only find one first name, Xavier, starting with it.  I couldn't find any surnames that start with it. Poor little X!

But without X we wouldn't have excitement, exclaim, exclude, explore or extreme. These are just a few of the words that X is a big part of.

What would an x-ray be without X, just a little ray!

This is the signal flag for X.

So let us not forget X but celebrate its uniqueness.

Bye for now,


  1. You show that you don't have to write at length to create an interesting and informative post. This year is the first in all the years of doing the A-Z challenge where I have not resorted to eX words and there are so many of them!

    Thank you for your comments on my A-Z entries.
