    Don't know why you didn't make the list, Randy. I always read your blog first. I read others, of course, but you cover stuff that they don't. Also, I like your writing style. It's like I can hear you talk to me.

    Keep at it!

    Just like Sharon said, I always read your blog. I always find things interesting even when you talk about Windows genealogy applications even though as a Mac user, it doesn't make much sense.

    About not being listed, not everyone is perfect. You're one of the best. You stick to genealogy and only genealogy! Thanks!

    That's one of the reasons that I won't renew my subscription.

    Odd to read that half of the "Best Northern US" websites are Canadian. Someone should perhaps tell the editors that Canada is still a separate country -- or send them a map. Nevertheless, the Canadian sites are good ones.
