GeneaBlog Awards

The end of a year brings award nominations. Genea-Musings has been awarded the Best Daily Genealogy Blog by Tamura Jones at (you need a real browser, Tamura says - I'm using Firefox and Chrome to read his web site) in his article titled GeneaBlog Awards, dated 20 December 2008.

Tamura's comment is:

"Best Daily Genealogy Blog: Genea-Musings

An easy win for Randy Seaver, as Genea-Musings is practically the only daily genealogy blog. There is the MosGA Messenger, but there is whole team behind that one. Randy is a one-man geneablogging machine.

While others struggle to come up with one or two new posts per week, Randy easily manages one or two posts each day - even when he is on vacation! In fact, he actually writes multiple blogs, one of which is aptly called The Geneaholic."

The other genealogy blogs recognized by Tamura include:

* Best Genealogy Society Blog: MoSGA Messenger
* Best Daily Genealogy Blog: Genea-Musings
* Deepest Genealogy Development blog: Louis Kessler's Behold Blog
* Best Commercial Genealogy Blog: The RootsMagic blog
* Best Genealogy Software News Blog: Geneanet Genealogy Blog
* Best Genetic Genealogy Blog: The Genetic Genealogist
* Best Genealogy on MacOS Blog: MacGenealogist
* Best Blog: 24-7 Family History Circle
* Funniest Genealogy Blog: The Genealogue

Please go visit Tamura's web site and the GeneaBlog Awards article to read what he has to say about each blog.

Tamura also has a recent article on his site titled GeneAwards 2008 which addresses best and worst genealogy product, new genealogy product and genealogy organization.

I thank Tamura Jones for the recognition of Genea-Musings and appreciate his kind words in the award.

I congratulate all of the winners of Tamura's genealogy blog awards - each is deserving and contributes significantly to the genea-blogging world.

Congrats on your award. I was glad to see that my blog, MoSGA Messenger, got the society award, but the presenter seems to be unaware that I am "the whole team behind MoSGA Messenger." I've added every single post to the blog since its creation on 4 November 2007.

Happy holidays,
