52 Weeks to Better Genealogy is a series of very helpful blog prompts which are listed on www.geneabloggers.com. The prompts are written by Amy Coffin of the We Tree blog www.wetree.blogspot.com These prompts help beginners as well as seasoned genealogy/family history researchers who’d like to strengthen and polish some skills. I'm excited about this weeks challenge.
Week 3: Assess yourself! You’re great at researching everyone else’s history, but how much of your own have you recorded? Do an assessment of your personal records and timeline events to ensure your own life is as well-documented as that of your ancestors. If you have a genealogy blog, write about the status of your own research and steps you may take to fill gaps and document your own life.
This challenge runs from Saturday, 16 January 2010 through Friday, 22 January 2010.
Amy says - these should be fun exercises! Don't feel that you have to participate each week, nor should you beat yourself up if you miss one or more challenges. We all have so much that we want to accomplish - let alone what we want to accomplish with our genealogy blogs. This series should be one which, by the end of 2010, helps you to be a better genealogist.
