2008 Genea-Blogger Group Games - Final Results

Wow! It's so amazing being up here on the award platform with everyone!

Congratulations to all who participated in the Summer 2008 Genea-Blogger Group Games! And a very special thank you to Miriam Midkiff Robbins, Kathryn Doyle, footnoteMaven and Thomas MacEntee for all their efforts to keep us organized and encouraged.

The Closing Ceremonies are over now and the Games results have just been posted by Thomas MacEntee at his Destination: Austin Family blog.

Among the events, Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness! resulted in the highest number of medals (29) and the most Platinum medals (15).

The event with the least number of medals was Back Up Your Data with 18.

These events sound like future personal challenges to me. But all my photos scanned - for that I will need a month of Sundays! (Yes, that's a family expression - haven't heard that outside the donkey's years).

My own results:

M. Diane Rogers
Canada Genealogy, or, "Jane's Your Aunt"
Write, Write, Write!: Platinum

And now there's a future challenge - will the Canadian bloggers step up to organize the 2010 Genea-Blogger Games during the Winter Olympics - to be held in beautiful Vancouver (well, close to Vancouver anyway) ? I'm in...who else?
