Winter 2010 GB Games - Progress Report #5

Wednesday (Feb. 17th) was Day 5 of the competition. Here's the list of categories and the tasks I've completed so far:

1. Go Back and Cite Your Sources. (Silver Medal earned so far)
Create proper citations of sources for as many events possible using either "Evidence Explained" by Elizabeth Shown Mills or "How to Cite Sources" by John Wiley.
16 total Citations completed  on 2/14, 2/15 and 2/16 meeting the Bronze requirement of 10.  
This process is taking some extra time because as I'm working on a family I doing some other clean up work with events. That's slowing down the sourcing but will be worth it in the long run.  Added 11 more source citations today for a total of 27 new citations that have been added to 105 events. Good enough for Silver and close to Gold. 

2. Back Up Your Data. (Gold Medal earned so far)
Task C - completed 2/14 (actually completed everyday) 

3. Organize Your Research.
Looks like I'm ignoring this category. I don't mean to but that's probably why this is my worst event. I have some things in mind and I'll start on them soon. Probably. Maybe. 

4. Expand Your Knowledge - PLATINUM MEDAL 
Task A - completed 2/13
Task B - completed 2/14 
Task C - completed 2/16
Task D - completed 2/16  
Task E - completed 2/15  

5. Write, Write, Write. (Diamond Medal earned so far)
Task C - completed 12/13 
Task D - completed 2/15 
Task E - completed 12/13
Task F - completed 12/13

6. Reach Out and Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness. (Silver Medal earned so far)
Task A - completed 2/15 
Task G - completed 2/15 
I've got a list of headstone photos to make for Find A Grave but unless the weather straightens up around here that's not going to happen.
