Winter 2010 GeneaBlogger Games - Day 4 Recap

Today I completed 27 source citations and organized 27 images. I finished resourcing the family of James M SHEPHERD and started the family of John SHEPHERD. I have 20 more images to go and half a family to finish. As the film I ordered from Family History Library arrived today, so I have some new research to start as I finish up this organization project.

I also prepublished two blog posts (I love this feature and use it all the time).

Here are my standings in the Winter 2010 GeneaBlogger Games:

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources - adding 27 to my total of 58 gives me a total of 85 citations, Very close to my Double Platinum medal. I currently hold a Platinum Medal.

2. Back Up Your Data - still have a Gold Medal.

3. Organize Your Research - digital files organized stands at 70 (that's like 3 1/2 medals, right?) I have a Silver Medal though.

4. Expand Your Knowledge - Completed task C and E today. Made memorial page of great grandfather, Edward Charles EISWERTH on Footnote and added a surname visualization to my surname page. That's two tasks done for a Silver Medal.

5. Write, Write, Write! - I prepublished two blog posts (task C) and updated my surname page and Ahnentafel page (task E). Two tasks complete and a Silver Medal.

6. Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness - Didn't do anything today. Of course I did tell my friend to have her son join the genealogy social media community, but that's as close as I have come to getting another researcher online with us. So I still have a Silver Medal.

Medal totals:
4 Silver Medals
1 Gold Medal
1 Platinum Medal


  1. GREAT WORK. I love doing this....I am finally getting a little organization into my genealogy!
