Late to a Game of Tag

It looks like I’m late to a game of genealogy blogger tag. The game was started Tuesday by Randy Seaver of the Genea-Musings blog. Judging by that site, the last of the bloggers got tagged yesterday evening while I slept off a migraine. That left me out of the game and up and blogging at 2 a.m. The bright side is that I can take advantage of the quiet, still night to work on my review of MacFamilyTree 5.3 beta.

I was tagged twice. The first tag was by my pal, Lisa Louise Cooke, of the Genealogy Gems Podcast. Finally, as I slept, I was tagged by Donna Moughty of  Donna Moughty’s Genealogy Resources.

The fun part is that the game consists of each tagged blogger answering five questions with five answers each. Here we go!
