I’ve been nominated for the Family Tree Magazine’s 40 Best Genealogy Blogs.  Now I need you to VOTE FOR ME!! LOL.

I’m nominated under the ‘Personal/Family Category’.

I can’t even believe I’ve been nominated.  WOW!!!

While work has had me busy and unable to tend to genealogy, I’m happy that I’m nominated!!!!  

Help I’ve fallen…

…and I can’t get my genealogy butt up!!!!

Life has been so busy I hadn’t had the time to focus on my research in a while. I don’t ‘feel’ my ancestors pointing me in the directions they once were or they’re pointing me in the direction I’m currently going. Hopefully, I’ll get bit again and the urge will return.

Meanwhile, I was award with the One Lovely Blog Award by Kathryn Doyle at CGS. THANKS!!!!

Geneabloggers use awards to support each other and to spread the word about new blogs with a family history focus. The honor comes with the stipulation that it be passed on to seven more “lovely” blogs.

Here are my picks….sorry if you’re duplicated..I’m selecting the top 7 genea blogs that I stalk that have updated lately…

Heritage Happens

Find Your Folks

But Now I’m Found

All My Branches Genealogy

Roots Reading

Our Georgia Roots


In other news, I’m going to Elizabeth City on the 25th to spend more time with family and doing more research. I hope to take pictures of more cemeteries in the area as well as interviewing some of the older family members.

But, before I go, I have to scan the 2 photo albums I got from my grandma and pictures I received from my grand-aunt. I’ve been slacking on my scanning. But, since this is my daughter’s birthday weekend and I’m torturing myself with allowing a slumber party, I figure I can lock myself in my room and get it done. My grandmother’s only requirement was that she get a new photo album for her pictures. I got the new album, now I need to start scanning.

Just wanted to let anyone out there that reads this, I haven’t disappeared, just busy.

Late Memes

I’m late as all get out with Memes. But it doesn’t mean I’m any less appreciative about receiving them.

George Geder and Genealogy Traces honored me with the Proximidade Award. The Proximidade blog award details are as follows:

“These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!

Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.”

I’ve added the award to my sidebar. As a recipient, I’m supposed to nominate 8 fellow bloggers. But, all my fellow bloggers have been nominated once or twice I’m late with this.

So, I’ll say..THANK YOU!!!

Also, thank you to Msteri who tagged me for an award several months ago….sorry I didn’t get a chance to work on it..
