Please Welcome These Latecomers to the Genea-Blogger Group Games!

As we mentioned in yesterday's post, we allowed latecomers to register for the Genea-Blogger Group Games as late as 9:00 PM, PDT, this evening. We'd like to extend a warm welcome to the following bloggers, who will be working hard to earn their medals!

The first is Linda Robbins (gee, I like her already! but no, we don't seem to be related) with the HollingsworthRobbinsFamilyTree. Linda's post on the categories she's working on is here.

Next up is Taneya Koonce with Taneya's Genealogy Blog. Taneya's been blogging for a long time and we're happy to see her join the Games. Her Entry Post is here.

The Genetic Genealogist, Blaine Bettinger, has joined us hoping to put a genetic genealogy twist on things. He writes about the categories he's competing in here.

Craig Manson has dug himself out of a (literal!) truckload of documents and photos and has headed out of the starting gate over at GeneaBlogie. Craig's blog has moved recently, so even if you're a long time fan and reader, as I am, make sure your bookmarks and feeds are updated. His post tells how he's entering all the categories!

We're very excited to add these "athletes" to our Games and wish them the best!

If you are a genealogy blogger and would like to join the Games (participation info and rules here), you are also certainly welcome! At this point, we will not be awarding medals to any more latecomers. However, feel free to drop me a line and let me know you're participating, and I will highlight you and your blog here, and you are welcome to use our participants' badge (Games logo) on your blog.

Welcome to all of the new competitors!
I tried to visit Kenlin Family Blog, but it is a closed site... :(

Good luck to all of you who are competing.
I've been away and must have missed some of the competition 'trials' but I'll keep up the spirit by running alongside the Olympic track anyway.
