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.
