Crazy Month of May – pandemic experience responses

A week ago I thought it might be an idea to share a meme so we can record our experiences during the current pandemic. Here are the questions. Randy Seaver of Geneamusings also suggested it as the topic for this week’s Saturday Night Genealogy Fun meme – thanks Randy! The responses from that will be in two parts – one this week and one after next Saturday.

I’ve listed all the blogs that have responded and the links will take you direct to their answers. If you haven’t visited them before, why not explore some of the other posts and leave a comment?

Thanks to all those who’ve joined in. If I’ve omitted to list your blog, my apologies –  please send me a message and I’ll rectify it. It’s still not too late – if you want to link to my original post I’ll add your response here. It’s been interesting to see how differently it has affected each of us, as well as some commonalities.
