I completed my last task early this morning in the GBG games. Whew! I was able to get quite a bit completed – though I would like to have done more. I think this has challenged many of us in the genea-blogging world the last two weeks. Thanks to Thomas MacEntee, Miriam Robbins Midkiff and Kathryn M. Doyle for being the administrators for these games as well as the Genea-Bloggers Group on Facebook. You all really keep us on our toes and make us strive to research deeper, keep proper documentation, stay organized, remember to keep back-ups of our information, and to write what we know. Thank you!
