The Honor of a Nomination - "40 Best Genealogy Blogs"

Wow! I've just learned from a dear friend and fellow blogger, Janice Tracy, author of several blogs about Mississippi that my blog, Tennessee Memories, has been nominated for one of the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs! I'm very honored and appreciate so much my readers.

In the May 2010 issue of Family Tree Magazine, the editors will name the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs.

The genealogy community was asked to nominate the genealogy blogs they read most. Beginning on October 5, voting commenced on the nominated blogs in several categories. You can find the list of nominees and vote for your favorites at Family Tree Magazine here. (For more on nominations and voting, go here.)

I had no idea. I have been so out of things for a while with my eyesight and the work I'm doing as Historian for our "50 Year Club" in Mineral Wells - my high school alma mater - that I've not been keeping up with my blogging community like I should. I truly appreciate the nomination and am really excited about the possibility of being voted on by readers.

Congratulations to all of the nominees!

Congratulations, are so very deserving!

Congratulation! I have missed reading your blog.

Judith Richards Shubert said...

Thank you both. I appreciate your following me here and I will do my best to not let my blogs fall into "oblivion" in the future!

Thanks Janice for telling me about the nomination.

Thanks, Vickie! I still enjoy your blog so much. You are an inspiration.

Judy, congratulations on your nomination, and I still want to get together one day when things calm down for you. Good luck!

Judith Richards Shubert said...

Hi Debbie. Thanks for writing. I know the nomination doesn't secure a selection or "win", but it's still very exciting. I want to get together with you, too, soon. Give me a little longer to get some stuff done and I'll email.

Congratulations, Judy - Very much deserved; I'd still read your blogs even if you didn't write about states I'm so interested in!

You are a dear, Greta! Thanks so much.
