My Final Tally for the GeneaBloggers Games
The GeneaBloggers Games have been lots of fun, but I have to wrap up a couple of days early because I probably won’t get a chance to do any more or even use the computer for the next few days.
It’s difficult to pick a favorite activity, but setting up a memorial page on Footnote as well as joining Findagrave and adding transcriptions and photos were something new and I am excited about doing more along these lines on both sites. For five of the challenges I reach my goals, and for Challenge 4 I exceeded my goal. The two best aspects of the Games were cheering one another on and learning new things.
Here are the results:
Challenge 1: Cite Your Sources! – 50 new source citations, Platinum medal
Challenge 2: Back Up Your Data! – Task A, Bronze medal
Challenge 3: Organize Your Research - Tasks A, B, D, and E – Diamond medal
Challenge 4: Expand Your Knowledge - Tasks A, B, C, D, and E – Platinum medal
Challenge 5: Write, Write, Write! – Tasks A, B, C, D, E – Platinum medal
Challenge 6: Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness – Tasks A, B, F, and G – Diamond medal
Best of luck to my fellow competitors in reaching their goals!
