41 have played and been found so far. If you know of others who have responded, please let me know and I'll add them to my list. My email is rjseaver(at)cox.net.

Are there some on that list that you haven't visited? One of the purposes of this tagging exercise is to get to know each other a bit more and perhaps find common interests other than genealogy. Please click on the links above and get to know all the wonderful genea-bloggers who provide content for the online genealogy world, and were brave enough to share their hidden talents, experiences or knowledge with the rest of us.

If everyone plays, we should run out of genea-bloggers to tag in several more days. I figured that 5 rounds would be 781 blogs, but that assumed everyone would play (and that all genea-bloggers are active).

Should this be a carnival of genealogy topic? It's probably too late!

UPDATES: Will likely be morning and evening for the next few days. Check back often! Last update: Tuesday, 30 January, 11:00 AM PST

Actually, I did consider it for a Carnival of Genealogy topic but I had no idea so many of the genea-bloggers would reveal themselves. I guess I just didn't have enough faith in my fellow bloggers. I thought people would be too shy/modest/private and unwilling to divert from the more traditional genealogy topics to contribute. Just goes to show you how well I didn't know my fellow bloggers!

And on the topic of not knowing my fellow bloggers... I thought everyone would rush to see which car I picked for them at the Auto Show (link to pictures on my Auto Show blog post) but very few did :-(

So much for my psych degree ;-)

Thanks for keeping a list, it is helpful as I have been jumping around trying to catch all of this. I want to say thank you to everyone who participated and so eagerly! It has been so much fun and interesting! Now I had better to check that list and make sure I haven't missed anyone!

Great thinking, Randy!

Denise Olsen at Family Matters posted hers today.

Susan Kitchens said...

Trust a genealogist to approach this as a kind of tagging begat tree! ;)

(and heck, I shoulda started it from the Family Oral History site, but, well, now you know I also hang out on my blog-blog)
