Winter 2010 GeneaBloggers Games

Although Monday, February 15 is Granny’s Genealogy’s 3rd blogoversary, I have not been an active participant in memes, carnivals or past games. For the 2010 Winter Games, all that changes!

I have created my Heritage Flag, which it huge, over the top, not too creative. The flag represents a migration map for some of my ancestors, who started in Scotland (part of the UK), and Germany, immigrating to Canada. They continued to the United States, where much of my family now resides.


The GeneaBloggers Games are a large challenge, which I hope to reach gold in at least two categories. To read the exact details, check out the competition guidelines on the GeneaBloggers website.

The categories for the competition are:

  1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources
    I have done a pretty good job of citing sources over the past two years, but many need to be reformatted according to newer recommendations. I should be able to be gold in this one, perhaps even higher.
  2. Back Up Your Data
    I will do well on the electronic portion of this, not sure about the hard copy portion, will require hard work. Prediction: Silver.
  3. Organize Your Research
    I view myself as highly organized, but some of these tasks are quite challenging. I’m rolling up my sleeves! Prediction: Gold
  4. Expand Your Knowledge
    Useful interesting tasks, I might go platinum here.
  5. Write, Write, Write!
    Of the six tasks listed here, several would be a stretch for me, and several are routine. Prediction: Gold.
  6. Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness
    This may be the most important category for all of us. Prediction: Platinum.

I am planning my attack right now, and wishing all the competitors well.


  1. I love your flag. It is so creative to show the migration of your ancestors.
