BFFed - who to tag next?

I received the Blogger Friends Forever (BFF) award this morning from Terry Thornton, who writes the superb Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi blog. Thank you Terry for thinking of me. I could post the logo below on my sidebar if I could figure out how to do it (I'm still on old Blogger):

The rules are if I accept this award I must pass it on. The rules for passing on the award are:

1. Only five people are allowed to receive the award.
2. Four of them must followers of your blog.
3. One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
4. You must link back to whoever gave you the award.

I choose the following five genealogy bloggers:

* Mark Tucker at the ThinkGenealogy blog
* Laura Womack at the LifeAtTheHome20 blog (a new blog to me)
* Dean Richardson at the Genlighten Blog - Genealogy Documented blog.
* Carolyn Earle Billingsley at the Life in Possum Holler blog.
* Schelly Talalay Dardashti at the Tracing the Tribe - The Jewish Genealogy Blog (I hope this qualifies for the "lives in another part of the world").

Why did I pick these people to be my BFF? Several reasons - they are blogs I learn something from, they are relatively new genealogy blogs, and they are blogs written by Facebook friends, or a combination thereof!

One the neat things about memes like this is that you find interesting blogs you didn't know existed, and some readers of other blogs find your blog too.

Unlike some people (thank you, Terr), I am not going to alert via email my nominees - I'll let them find their award on their own - a surprise! Let's see how long it takes for them to find it.

Thanks, Randy!


Hi, Randy,

What a nice idea! Thank you! Since Blogger blocked Tracing the Tribe, I have set up a mirror site at and will write about this over there. I will attempt to download and post the BFF logo. Let you know later about it.

Thanks so much! I really needed this today. You have no idea.
