52 Weeks to Better Genealogy- Challenge 3

Here’s the newest challenge from 52 Weeks to Better Genealogy is listed on www.geneabloggers.com and is written by Amy Coffin of the We Tree Blog at www.wetree.blogspot.comThese 52 weeks of blog prompts help beginners as well as seasoned genealogy/family history researchers who’d like to strengthen and polish some skills.
 

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 reminds us that these should be fun exercises and tells us not to feel that we have to participate each week. Just do what we can when we are able. The series is to help us be  better genealogists by the end of 2010.
