Last time I was itching to get started, but I must admit, this time around, I’m a little slow getting out of the gate. But I have managed to do a few things. Here’s the current tally.
Category: Write, Write, Write
Task A – Write a summary of what your blog is about. I rewrote my “about this blog” page, since the focus has changed since I started blogging.
Task E – For this task I created a surname page for my blog using Blogger’s new static page feature. I already had a link pointing to a post I did awhile back, but this was a good opportunity to update that list with additional surnames and updated information.
Category: Expand Your Knowledge
Task D - Visit tutorial and learning pages of popular websites such as Ancestry.com or FamilySearch’s excellent articles repository. I took a different route with this one and instead visited the Skillbuilding page for Board for Certification of Genealogists. Of particular interest was an article written by Elizabeth Shown Mills, entitled, “Transcribing Source Materials.”
