In the Summer of 2008, AnceStories hosted the opening ceremonies of the GeneaBlogger 2008 Summer Games. Genealogy bloggers were encouraged to enter the games and compete to the high standards of blogging, research, and citation. Readers and other bloggers who were too busy to participate in the events became our cheering spectators, as 35 bloggers representing three nations and a diversity of heritages and cultures competed to earn medals designed by the talented footnoteMaven. The GeneaBlogger Games corresponded with the 2008 Summer Olympics, and in the same vein, the upcoming GeneaBlogger 2010 Winter Games will correspond with the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Be looking for more posts explaining the games, plus the opening ceremonies on February 15th at the GeneaBloggers website!
P.S. Look for/use the GeneaBlogger Games hashtag at Twitter: #GBGames2010. Thanks to Regina of KinfolkNews for the suggestion!
