GeneaBlogger Yearbook

Wow! What fun this has been! The challenge I put forth for the genea-bloggers for this event was to go to Yearbook Yourself and upload a photo of yourself to the site to have it create a lifespan yearbook, if you will. There are some pretty interesting and funny photos in here! Heck, there were some of mine that I liked better than my current day style! Here's a look at the Geneablogger Yearbook!

Kathryn Lake Hogan of Looking 4 Ancestors created her styles for the Yearbook, too! Check it out to see if you'll roll over laughing like her boys did.

Midge Frazel of Granite in My Blood thinks GeneaBloggers "Take the Cake" when it comes to crazies! She even took it a step further and dolled up the photo a bit at her site!

Julie Cahill Tarr of GenBlog put together quite the collection at her site. You've got to see this classic yearbook layout! Is Marsha Brady in the house? :).

Linda Stienstra posted a photo at Facebook that best aligned her with the year of her graduation! Gotta admire a gal not afraid to announce her age! Course, I'd be willing to bet Geneabloggers as a whole aren't "age-shy"!

Jennifer Jones Regan employed a similar tactic and posted two photos at Facebook. One was almost the year she graduated and the other another Marsha Brady flashback!

Ben Sayer, our resident Mac guru and author of the blog, also participated in this nostalgic event! Check out his look HERE.

SheriFenley of The Educated Genealogist joined the Marsha Brady bandwagon and then some! See her great photos HERE.

You have to see Thomas MacEntee's entry on Destination Austin Family. Just how does a geneablogger come to be? Check it out and you will see (hey, I'm a poet and don't know it!).

And what collection wouldn't be complete without the GeneaDiva? She doesn't fail us here, so go over THERE and take a gander at how she put Olivia Newton-John to the test!

Marsha! Marsha! Marsha! Oh wait, THIS PHOTO of Paula Hinkel for some reason brought to mind JAN Brady! Remember Jan's wig? Paint it black!

Now HERE is an entry that took a rather unique turn. Richard Cheek of The Cheek That Doth Not Fade included a real photo of himself in the same year as one of his Yearbook Yourself photos! What a great post, and I can't wait until the weekend when I'll have time to add his blog to my blogrolls!

Many thanks to all those who participated in this activity and to those who read about the experience. It was a fun way to break up the week! If you created a Yearbook Yourself photo or post and it isn't listed here it's likely because I didn't know of it (and hopefullyl not because I missed it!). Post a link under "Comments" for others to enjoy!
