No shotput-hurling or pole-vaulting here. The five events in the Genea-Blogger Games include citing sources, backing up data, organizing your research, writing about your family history and performing acts of genealogical kindness.
Youll keep track of your own points and record your progress on your blog. Win enough points, and youll receive a medal to display there.
Competitors must register by 3 pm PDT Aug. 7, and the Games are on Aug. 9-23. See the AnceStories blog for registration instructions, detailed descriptions of each event and scorekeeping guidelines.
Nows the time for all that genealogy training to pay offlet the games begin!
