I want to thank Karen at Genealogy Frame of Mind for bestowing on me the One Lovely Blog Award. I’m not sure of the origin of this award, but am honored to receive it and to know that my blog is being read, at least by Karen!

The rules of acceptance for this award are:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted the award and their blog link.

2. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.

Ancestor Approved Award

I am honored that Dr. Bill Smith, who writes the blog, Dr. Bill Tells Ancestor Stories, has chosen me as a recipient of the Ancestor Approved Award. This award was created by Leslie Ann Ballou as “a way to let my fellow genealogy bloggers know how much I appreciate and enjoy their blogs full of tips and tricks as well as funny and heartwarming stories”.

It’s gratifying to know (and I’m sure many bloggers would agree) that people are actually reading what I write and are enjoying it.

The rules of this award state that the recipient list ten things they have learned about any of their ancestors that has surprised, humbled, or enlightened them and then pass the award along to ten other bloggers who they feel are doing their ancestors proud. I’m happy to pass the award to the following bloggers:

Denise Barrett Olson  –

Julie Cahill Tarr  –

Jasia Smasha  –

Sally Jacobs  –

Ben Sayer  –

Brenda K. Wolfgram Moore  –

Roger Moffat  –

Lee Drew  –

Karen Krugman  –

Cheryl Fleming Palmer  –

Some of the things I have learned that have surprised, humbled, or enlightened me will have to wait for another time.

Thanks again, Bill, for this award! I really appreciate it.
