The Pentathlon at the Genea-Blogger Group Games

Genea-Bloggers Group Games Logo

The Summer 2008 Genea-Blogger Group Games begin today amid an atmosphere of frenzied excitement among the participants. Genea-Bloggers were invited to enter their choices from five events and undertake to complete the tasks associated with those events. Participants will record their progress on their blogs and will receive any medals earned at the Awards Ceremony on August 25.

I’m entering the Pentathlon:

  1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources!
  2. Back Up Your Data!
  3. Organize Your Research!
  4. Write, Write, Write!
  5. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness!

At first, I was hesitant to participate. One of my New Year’s Resolutions was No New Projects!. However, most of the tasks described are on my to-do list anyway, and while I may not achieve the highest level in each category, I expect to perform well in each.

My only regret about these games was to discover that the Pole Vault was cancelled. The Opening Ceremonies will be were held at AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors later today.
