Winter 2010 Geneablogger Games – The Final Tally

by Tonia Kendrick on February 26, 2010 in And More

Competition in the Winter 2010 Geneablogger Games is over.  I accomplished much more than I had anticipated when I began.

Here are my standings:

genealogy, geneabloggers1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources – All competition is this category took place last week.  Platinum Medal!

2. Back Up Your Data – did not compete.

3. Organize Your Research – This week I completed tasks A) organized 20 documents into file folders, C) organized a stack of more than 20 photos into a box, and E) a combo – scanned 3 photos and 3 documents and created 21 database entries based on those items.  I had previously completed tasks B and D.  Platinum Medal!

4. Expand Your Knowledge – This week I completed tasks C) created a Footnote memorial page, D) read several articles in the learning pages at, E) created visualizations using Wordle.  I had previously completed Task A.  Diamond Medal!

5. Write, Write, Write! – This week I completed task C) prepared several posts and pre-publish them.  I like to keep 12 to 24 posts on ice;  I wrote three this week, which brought my total scheduled posts to 18.  I had previously completed tasks A, B, and F.  Diamond Medal!

6. Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness – This week I completed tasks E) indexed 50 names on FamilySearch,  F) sent in my membership form for the Whitfield-Murray Historical Society, and G) “followed” several blogs.  I had previously completed tasks A and B.  Diamond Medal!

My final tally is three Diamond and two Platinum medals.

This was a fun exercise and well-worth pursuing.  Many tasks coincided with items on my To-do list, so I concentrated on those.  I also completed a number of “backburner” items, such as updating my About page, joining my local historical society, etc.

Wow! You did great, Tonia! I agree with you, participating in the Games was really worthwhile–a good nudge in the direction we all wanted to go anyway but needed that extra bit of motivation. Congrats!
