Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Favorite Blogs!

It's Saturday Night (well, here in Arkansas it's 1:10 in the afternoon, and I'm on lunch break), so it's time for some Genealogy Fun!

Diane Haddad, on The Genealogy Insider blog, has asked blog readers to nominate genealogy blogs for the Family Tree 40 in her post Nominate a Genealogy Blog for the Family Tree 40. There is a link to a nomination form in the post, and voting will take place between October 5 and November 5.

The assignment for this Saturday Night, should you choose to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible music again), is:

1) Identify three of your favorite genealogy blogs to nominate for the Family Tree 40 list, and fill out the nomination form for them.

2) Tell us which three you chose, and a reason why you chose it, in a blog post on your own blog, in comments to this post, or in a Note or comments to this post on Facebook.

3) For purposes of this assignment, please don't name Genea-Musings as one of your three (obviously, I would be honored to be nominated, and you can do so at your pleasure). What I'm hoping is that by writing about three of your favorite genealogy blogs, that you will introduce many blog readers to more outstanding blogs, for the benefit of all of us.

Here are three of my favorite blogs:

* Genealogy's Star by James Tanner. James has some of the most thoughtful and useful blog posts week in and week out.

* relatively curious about genealogy by Tami Glatz. Tami's posts are helpful and informational, and entertaining too. I've enjoyed Tami's company here at FGS - it's been fun meeting the person behind the blog and the web pages.

* The Educated Genealogist by Sheri Fenley. Sheri is a funny lady, and a great genealogy researcher (not necessarily in that order, but close!). Actually, I put her on my list because she is my ProGen group leader...hey, it's my list!

C'mon - show me yours now!
