Ancestor Approved Award - x 2

The Ancestor Approved Award was started by Leslie Ann over at Ancestors Live Here in March and made the rounds through the blogging community at that time. Lately it's making a comeback and I've been given this award twice in the past few days - by Long Lost Relatives.net and Nolichucky Roots. Thanks ladies. I enjoy both of your blogs very much. 

Recipients of this award are to list 10 things they have learned about their ancestors that have surprised, humbled or enlightened them and then pass the award on to 10 other bloggers who are doing their ancestors proud. 

I made a list of 10 things I'd learned back in April so you can check it out here

There seems to have been a explosion of new genealogy blogs lately - 122 added to the GeneaBloggers list in just the past three weeks. My list of 10 bloggers are mostly newcomers to the genealogy blogging community. 

Welcome to the party:

Jennifer - Climbing My Family Tree
CJ - All About GEN...
Liz - My Tapley Tree... and its Branches
Shelley - A Sense of Family
Suz - The Hunt for Henrietta
Jamila - Arkansas Roots: The Stories of my Family
BookChickJen - Digging under my family tree...
Gayle - Genealogy Dragnet
Jen - Jen's Genealogy Pages
Amanda - The Historian's Family


  1. Thank you so much, Linda! It humbles me that people are actually interested in and read my blog. I appreciate the award.

  2. Liz, It's been almost a year since I started and it still surprises me that people read my blog.

  3. Congrats on your double award, Linda, and thanks so much for passing it on to me! It means so much to know that people are actually reading and enjoying my blog. I am honored to be in such good company!

  4. Linda, thank you so much! When I realized that I received this award, along with several other great bloggers, I was so excited! So were my son and husband! My son gave me the biggest hug! I'm so glad there's an award like this! It has really made my day!

  5. Thanks very much, Linda. I am honoured - and glad I finally got my act together and started blogging! I am working on my list but there are not many child-free moments these days so it may take me some time!

  6. You're all welcome.

    Jen - no pressure.

  7. Linda, congratulations on your blogoversary yesterday! I wanted to let you know that my 'list' is posted, just in case you wanted to take a look (http://tinyurl.com/34educb)! Thanks again.
