I have made some more progress in the Genea-Blogger Group Games.
1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources!
I finished adding 10 citations to my genealogy database.
2. Back Up Your Data!
I have a general plan for backing up my data, but I haven’t developed what I consider a comprehensive plan yet.
3. Organize Your Research!
I organized over 20 hard files in 3-ring binders.
4. Write, Write, Write!
I pre-posted one blog entry, but this does not qualify as “several” as required in the game rules.
I volunteered to host the Carnival of Eastern European Genealogy organized by Jessica of Jessica’s Gene Journal.
5. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness!
I invited members of my online Family Tree Maker group to join Facebook.
I assisted another researcher in looking for an obituary, but I could not find the obituary in the resources at my disposal. Although I tried, I’m not counting this as a task completed for the Genea-Blogger Group Games.
I joined FamilySearch Indexing and indexed 50 records from the 1900 US Federal Census.
I joined Gesher Galicia and made a financial contribution to their project to inventory the land records and maps for Galician towns.
Because the Genea-Blogger Group Games ends Saturday at noon, I won’t have any time to complete any other tasks. On Saturday I’ll be at my local Family History Center, pouring over microfilms!
