Well, I started off strong but ended with a whimper. Comparing my performance to the Winter Olympics you might say I crashed on the slalom course. Nonetheless, I did participate in some of the events and learned a lot along the way. So here goes with the final tab:
Back Up Your Data event: I backed up my data to my Mobile Me iDisk account and investigated the possibility of using Google GDrive as well, but opted not to go that route. So I completed task “C” earning a Silver Medal
Organize your research event: I began the task of organizing my blog using the WordPress “pages” feature to provide indexes for each family. I completed one family, the Shanes. No medal earned, (boo-hoo).
Expand your knowledge event: This was a very enjoyable event! I created a surname visualization using Wordle and posted it to my blog, started a time line for Robert Shane using TimeToast but haven’t finished it yet. So I completed one task earning a Bronze Medal.
Reach out and perform genealogical acts of kindness event: I read and commented on three blogs, (task A), created memorials and posted photos for four ancestors in my Boss line, (Task B) and earned a Silver Medal.
So Thomas, there you have it. Beyond my rather paltry list of task completions above I dabbled with some of the other tasks and all in all had a great time along the way. Thank you so very much for organizing the event!
