The Proximidade Award

I've been remiss in not mentioning that I have received the Proximidade Award from several genea-bloggers.

What is this award? It is awarded for:

"These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."

Thank you to Cindy of the Everything's Relative - Researching Your Family History for starting this award cycle in the genealogy blogging community.

Thank you also to Julie Cahill Tarr of the GenBlog by Julie blog and Miriam Robbins Midkiff of the Ancestories: The Stories of My Ancestors blog for nominating me for this award.

It is difficult to find eight genea-bloggers who have not been nominated for this award, since I have not kept track of who has received it previously. Therefore - if you feel that you qualify for the award, please capture the award image and put it on your blog, and say that I nominated you!

LOL!!! Since Genea Bloggers don't typically do this sort of thing, I think we should go grab all the awards that those "artsy" types are giving away to each other and place them on ALL of our blogs!!!

Thanks for the laugh Randy - never fail to amuse!

Happy New Year!

Yes, I agree. After I finally figured out what I was suppose to do after receiving this award, of which I am grateful, I had no idea of knowing who already had gotten it. So, after I had sent my 8 out, I already see about 3-4 of the 8 had gotten it previously. Maybe who starts this needs a recipient sheet that you sign if you were to receive it.
