The rules are pretty simple:
You have to use the About Genealogy page above to access each category. The page for the last category looks like this:
On each category page, there is a description of the awards, the reminders on how to vote, the nominees for the category to be voted upon, a place to share that you voted on Facebook, your name, a Captcha so that robots don't take over the voting, and a description of each nominated site.
The nominees for each category are in alphabetical order.
Here are the 11 categories and the nominees:
I showed the Captcha in the last screen above.
After you have voted for each category, the current results screen appears. Here are the current results for the last category:
This was a difficult task because it required clicking on each category on the About Genealogy page, entering your selection and then conquering the Captcha test in order to cast your vote. It would have been a lot easier to have one page with the 11 categories to select from, and one Captcha to defeat.
I hope that many readers and genealogists go vote on the nominations - and I'm sure the results will be interesting come March 27th.
Thanks to Kimberly Powell, who writes the About Genealogy blog and manages the genealogy site, for creating this awards feature and choosing the categories and nominees.
