Day One Totals

My Cheek line has been proved back to the early 1700s with evidence that it probably goes back to Anthony was in in Virginia in 1660.  While I have all of that line documented I don’t have good citations for all of the connections. So that is my real goal for the competition, to have that line fully documented with complete citations.  I was really doing well yesterday and got ten done, when I got distracted.  I was looking at Ruth Stephens Bluebonnet blog and discovered scrapblogging.  I was hooked. So I spent the rest of the day putting together the January Wedding scrapblog that you can see below.  Anyway I am now at 10 citations and looking for a way to stay focussed.

Summer 2008 Genea-Blogger Group Games

In the spirit of the summer games, I plan to compete in the following events:

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources!–Surely I can go for the gold in this one.

2. Back Up Your Data!–I have already done C, do I have to go back and do A & B to get the gold medal?

3. Organize Your Research!–I’ve already been working on this. If I can’t reach diamond level I’m going to be disappointed.

4. Write, Write, Write!–I’m not sure how far I can go in this one if I get the others done, but I’ll try at least get a silver medal.

5. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness!–I do this on an ongoing basis whenever I can so I won’t formally compete in this category. I’ll just keep on doing what I’ve been doing.
