We have a Pinterest board! So let me know if you're on Pinterest and would like to be added as a pinner to this board! For now I'm tracking down completed cemeteries (ie. fully transcribed and profiles created) and pinning those, but even cemeteries that are still in progress would be good to pin here.

Also let me know if you have a cemetery page you'd like pinned! You can include a short blurb about it, too.

2015 Show Your Shelves Some Love: A No Book Buying Challenge
The Show Your Shelves Some Love challenge is sort of like the various TBR reading challenges, but with the focus on not buying books rather than just on reading your TBR books. Since my TBR pile continues to grow (though I've slowed the growth a little!), t...

2015 Mount TBR Reading Challenge
Aaaaand, here we go again! I tried to set realistic challenge goals last year, but underestimated just how little free time school would allow me. So I failed this challenge yet again. But no more! Because this year, I'm signing up for the lowest level: Pik...

Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers has come up with a challenge of sorts, which is exactly what I need: a Genealogy Do-Over. The idea is to start over with your genealogy research, and do it right this time, rather than continuing to build off of old, bad research.
