Genealogical Acts of Kindness for the Winter 2010 GeneaBloggers Games

I had fun and played with the Winter 2010 Games a bit today!

#6. Reach Out & Perform Genealogical Acts of Kindness, seemed to be my calling today.
  • Task A: Comment on a new (to you) genealogy blog. See the New Genealogy Blogs tag at GeneaBloggers for the newest blogs.
I have been trying to make it a practice, even before these games started, to leave messages on new to me blogs, along with posting more comments on the blogs I already am aware of. Today though I chose a new to me blog, Family History for Beginners and left a message. I believe it is great timing for this blog, with the new TV shows enlightening others to our fabulous hobby!

  • Task F: Join a genealogical, historical, heritage or lineage society.
It just so happens my membership to two of the genealogy societies that I belong to are up for renewal. I belong to my local genealogical society and the California Genealogical Society, and both memberships have and/or are expiring. My check for the local society has been mailed and the check for California Genealogical Society is ready to drop in the mail tomorrow.

  • Task G: Use the Follow feature on a Blogger-based genealogy blog and follow one or more blogs.
I went to blogger this afternoon and actually clicked to follow fourteen genealogy blogs! Now, I have to admit that several of the blogs were not new to me, but I had not seen them on blogger before to follow them. I just went back and looked at all of the blogs I checked to follow (I made a list of each of these blogs), there were eight that were new to me, more than I thought!

So this gives me three tasks completed so far for #6!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
