Winter 2010 Geneabloggers Game - Day 15 - Final

More information on the Winter 2010 Geneabloggers Games

Daily Stats: DayFifteen / Final

It's only 10 am, but I don't suspect I will tally up any more progress in either of the categories in which I chose to compete.

Category: Organize Your Research

Task E: Create at least 20 data entries in your database, or scan 20 photos, or scan 20 documents.

New Scanned: 23 documents (26 pages)
Total Scanned: 184 documents (337 pages)
New Data Entries: 4
Total Data Entries: 40

Medal: Double Platinum (Task completed 10 times)

In the 2008 Summer Games I scanned 84 documents (126 pages) with 20 data entries. I doubled my output in both parts of this task. Being familiar with the Wheat and the Chessboard, I know I have my work cut out for me in future competitions.

Category: Expand Your Knowledge
  • Task A: Use Google Maps to map out an ancestral location.
  • Task B: Create a timeline related to one of your lines of research, a specific ancestor or location.
  • Task E: Create a surname visualization using Wordle, Word It Out or a similar application. Post the graphic to your blog.
Completed: Tasks A, B, D and E. (I'm satisfied with the memorials I'm creating for my ancestors and kin at FindAGrave, I don't feel a need to start creating them elsewhere.)

Medal: Diamond (4 tasks)
