Family Tree Magazine's 40 Best Genealogy Blogs Contest!





 Family Tree Magazine announced its 40 Best Genealogy Blogs contest for 2011!


Last year, by some miraculous reason, Heritage Happens was honored to make the top 40 Best Genealogy Blog  list! I was stunned, and it was truly amazing!  This year we have so many new and awesome blogs out there! Of course, we still have the "seasoned"  blogs available also. This year it becomes so much tougher though because there are now something like 1200 (?), or more, blogs to choose from! I have my favorites, and I bet you do too.

I understand that we will not be able to choose Genealogy GemsGenea-MusingsDearMYRTLE or GeneaBloggers as a choice for the top 40. Nor will we be able to choose any of  Thomas MacEntee's several other blogs, I have lost count how many he authors now, 10? Maybe it is 12? 

Anyway, each of these blogs authors, Lisa Louise Cook, Randy Seaver, Myrt, and Thomas are all panelists for this years contest. They have chosen the categories and the qualifications. Congrats to you all for being on the panel!

November 30, 2010 is the last day to nominate your favorite blogs for this contest. When you choose a blog be sure to select the category and why you believe it should be in the top 40. There have been some changes in the contest so you may wish to read the rules for this year.

There are 8 categories this year. I like the groupings. They are:

1. Local/regional genealogy
2. Heritage Groups (ethnic)
3. Research advice/ How to
4. Cemeteries
5. My history blogs
6. "Everything" blogs
7. Technology
8. New Blogs

Now, to take some time and make some choices!  There really are so many great blogs! I have a few in mind already. How about you? Make sure you take the  time to make your decisions and vote here. The winners will be very grateful to you!

I wish everyone good luck and I look forward to seeing this years winners! It just may be YOU!

Thanks for stopping by! 


Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
