I must admit, I'm typing with a little swagger as I've already completed the first step to enter. I made my flag at We Are Multicolored, which represents my American heritage as well as my ancestral roots in Germany and the British Isles. I don't use a sidebar, so I'll be flying my flag in any post that pertains to the Games.
I intend to participate in all six categories.
- Go Back and Cite Your Sources! With 10 citations the minimum for a bronze medal and 50 needed for a platinum, at this point I'm not even going to guess how far I'll get. Five a day would do it. We'll see!
- Back Up Your Data! Since my external hard drive doesn't have room for a complete computer backup at this point, I'll be burning my important genealogy files to DVDs, as per Task C. Goin' for the Gold!
- Organize Your Research! Wasn't this the essence of my New Year's resolutions? There are six Tasks to choose from for this category. I intend to complete at least four.
- Expand Your Knowledge! There are five Tasks to choose from. I'll try to pick one or two, and then not obsess over them!
- Write, Write, Write! Of the six Tasks listed, I have my eye on A, C and E. We'll see!
- Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness! There are seven Tasks to choose from. I'll pick three and go for the Gold.
