    Come and Challenge us on the Generation Game

    What it is
    The challenge is always to connect someone on the 1841 census to someone on the 1901 census.

    How it works
    We work in teams to find the link, and we will then expand to all the blood relatives of the people mentioned in the challenges that we can find. All census references and BMD refs that we can find will also be added

    Please note - we will not spend any money on your tree, all the information we find will be freely available online.

    The winning team is the one with the most names, and refs included. Each challenge lasts a week

    What we get out of it:
    The fun of looking at someone else’s tree, especially when are own are proving frustrating:)

    What you get out of it:
    Hopefully a few new leads.

    What we need from you
    The link needs to have already been proven by you. Your tree should not be in the public domain, which would make life far too easy for us. We’re looking for a challenge, not a copying exercise after all

    We need whoever sets the challenge to be around on a Friday night to “mark” the trees. Access will be given to the trees that have been worked on, either on GR or Ancestry, and you will be sent GEDCOM’s of what we’ve found so that you can investigate at leisure.

    How do we decide who sets the challenge
    The winning team will decide whether one of their member’s sets the next challenge, or if we are taking a challenge from you. If we take a challenge from you it will be on “first come, first served” basis

    So what are you waiting for? Come and set us a challenge:)


    We welcome new players, but be warned - it is seriously addictive

        I was so excited I didn't even think of Modding responsibilities LOL

        As it's a recruitment type drive for the FTFS weekly quiz I'd say it's okay

        I may get over ruled though - in which case this isn't me speaking

          You nearly confused me, just came on for a quick read, moved across from general to research and thought I'd gone back to general LOL

            Sorry Mavis - we were just trying to get the message over to as many bods as possible. You're on the list.

                Please, please, please let us do your tree! :)

                On one of the lines I submitted for the challenge I got over 200 new leads to follow....which I'm still wading my way through. Even if we get it totally wrong, you will have the pleasure of telling us! :D

                      when you say it mustnt be on a public domain what do you mean? I have mine on GR and triblapages so does that not count?

                        Sorry Gloryer - only just seen your post


                        By not in the public domain we mean not somewhere that we can access and read. So on GR is fine, as its usually quite difficult to actually work out someones tree from on there.

                        Tribal pages would be fine as well I think, as long as its a "private" tree (someone help me out here)

                        What we don't want is for it to be, say, a public tree on Ancestry where all we have to do is go and have a quick look - and then start copying

                              Hi
                              Please, Can I join in ? I love a good chase.

                              Can I challenge or chase, or both ?

                              Only one problem, I get badly confused by the time difference - its nearly 9pm Monday night - its Monday morning in England right ? If Friday night there is Saturday morning here (and I have to go to cricket, with my son) is that a problem ?

                                Di - you're welcome to come and join us as a player as well as a challenger:)

                                The time difference shouldn't be a problem as we already have one player who is based in Australia and one who is based in America.

                                Pop in to the generations game thread on general to see the current challenge on
