The real Olympics are over and so are the GeneaOlympics. I want to thank Randy Seaver at GeneaMusings for his extra challenges and, of course, AnceStories for the original challenges.
This time around I decided to focus primarily on challenges that were related to my blog. My blog was sorely in need of some love (meaning posts), so I put my energy there.
Here’s my flag…I competed for multiple nations…
So, how did I do?
Randy’s challenges completed:
Great Great Grandparent challenge: Platinum
Surname challenge: Gold
Source to Person Ratio challenge: Disqualified
Research Plan Challenge: One plan done, Bronze
Blog’s Read challenge: Bronze
AnceStories challenges completed:
Write, Write, Write!
Participated in a blog carnival that will be online September 1st
Prepared 15 posts that would be published in the future
Four tasks completed=Diamond Medal
Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness
Commented on two blogs that were new to me
Joining another blogger’s network on Facebook (phew…I’d forgotten all about the blog network!)
I assisted two people by finding the 1940 census page for one person’s ancestor and the death certificate for the other person’s ancestor. I also tried to help a third person with her tree, but we’ve hit a road block.
Three tasks completed=Gold Medal
All in all I earned 2 Bronze, 2 Gold, 1 Diamond, and 1 Platinum. I was disqualified in one event (oh well…LOL…must work on my start time). I also had a lot of fun!
