The Genea-bloggers Group Games Opening Ceremonies

Please go visit Miriam Midkiff's blog "Opening Ceremonies of the Summer 2008 Genea-bloggers Group Games: The Parade of Delegates" to see the events of the 31 participants and their beautiful flags displaying their heritage.

The post proclaims (accompanied by the Olympic theme playing in the background) ...

In the Spirit of
Friendly Competition
Quality Standards
and Achievement
we present to you the participants of
the Summer 2008 Genea-Blogger Group Games.
This may be a lot of fun... Genealympics in action!

Miriam challenged the competitors:

Genea-Bloggers, are you prepared?
May the light of our ancestors' lives shine before us,
guiding us, motivating us,
and leading us on to record their history
for the generations to come.

Thank you to Miriam Midkiff, Thomas MacEntee and Kathryn Doyle for planning the Genealympics (well, the GBGG) and getting the opening ceremonies off to a running start.

Let the games begin...
