Vote for Your Favorite Genealogy Blogs


The polls are now open until 5 November at Family Tree Magazine for voting on your favorite genealogy blogs. The categories (described in detail on The Genealogy Insider blog post) , and number of blogs to vote for in each category, are:

* All-Around (vote for 3)

* Cemeteries (vote for 2)

* Genealogy Companies (vote for 1)

* Genetic Genealogy (vote for 1)

* Heritage (vote for 4)

* How To (vote for 3)

* Local/Regional (vote for 3)

* News/Resources - vote for 4)

* Photos/Heirlooms (vote for 2)

* Personal/Family (vote for 12)

The wonderful and thoughtful footnoteMaven has listed links to all of the nominated blogs in her post here.

I like that they have broken the blogs into categories, that the order in the list is tandom (it changes every time you go to the list), and that we can vote for a number of blogs in each category. There are 131 blogs on the nomination form.

You can vote any number of times - you just need to follow the directions.

Genea-Musings is in the All-Around category. Thank you to those who nominated this blog, and I will greatly appreciate your votes.

What happens after 5 November? The Genealogy Insider blog post says:

"The top 80 vote-getting blogs will make it through to a "final" round, and our editorial staff will select 40 blogs from that list. The Family Tree 40 will be announced in the May 2010 Family Tree Magazine and in the Genealogy Insider e-mail newsletter."

Congratulations on your VERY well deserved nomination.

Only you, my friend, would notice that the listings were random and changed every time. I had to go back to see for myself.

You're so smart!

P.S. And thank you for the link to the list. I'm an ordered sort of person.

I like the random listing as well although I hadn't noticed it was changing.
Very exciting for everyone and it goes without saying that your blog would be there and at the top of the list as far as I'm concerned!
