Family Tree Magazine’s 40 Best Genealogy Blogs – Vote For Your Favorite

Family Tree Magazine 2011 Best Genealogy Blogs

Well folks, it is that time of year again! Family Tree Magazine has just announced the nominees for its 40 Best Genealogy Blogs contest with results to be announced in the July 2011 issue!

As mentioned in an earlier post here at GeneaBloggers back in November, GeneaBloggers (or any of my other genealogy blogs) were not eligible for nomination because I am honored to be one of the Family Tree 40 panelists. The group includes Genealogy Gems blogger Lisa Louise Cooke, Genea-Musings blogger Randy Seaver, Myrt of the DearMYRTLE blog and me. This group will be lending their expertise in formulating the blog categories and qualifications.

Here is a list of all 117 nominees, most of whom are members of GeneaBloggers:
