Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings has posted additional events for the 2012 Genealympics here. I want to thank Randy for coming up with fun ways to look at what we are doing in genealogy.
Next event for me: The Source Citation Vault: What is your ratio of source citations to persons in your genealogy software or online tree database? Tell us:
- How many persons are in your database?
- How many source citations are in your database?
- Determine your source citation to persons ratio by dividing source citations by persons (e.g., 2,000 source citations divided by 3,000 persons gives a ratio of 0.667.)
- Bronze: Ratio of 0.333 or more
- Silver: Ratio of 0.667 or more
- Gold: Ratio of 1.000 or more
- Diamond: Ratio of 1.333 or more
- Platinum: Ratio of 1.667 or more
- 10,255 individuals and
- 10,198 source citations, resulting in a
- ratio of 0.994.
I was not really surprised to find that I have more individuals in my database than source citations. Like many others, I didn’t realize the importance of citations when I first started my research so I have lots of work to do before the 2016 Genealympics!
