Woo Hoo! Yippee! Yahoo! Hooray!

More than pleased, I'm terrifically happy to have had my Creative Gene blog named to the Family Tree Magazine's 40 Best Genealogy Blogs list. To each and every one of you who voted for my blog, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. What a good feeling it is to know that my blog is appreciated so much!

I'd also like to thank Maureen Taylor for the really great write up she did about all the winning bloggers. It is so nice to see my fellow bloggers honored so. And thanks, Maureen, for the nice comments about Creative Gene!

Thank you, Diane Haddad, for your announcement post about the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs and for sending me the announcement email. Very nice of you!

I'd like to congratulate my fellow bloggers who were also chosen for the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs list. You are all outstanding writers and researchers. I'm in the very best of company :-) I'm so pleased for you all!

And I have to send out special congratulations to my dear friend footnoteMaven who had not one, not two, but three blogs on the Best 40 list! Atta girl! You sure set a high standard for the rest of us to follow. ;-)

Well, Family Tree Magazine, this was fun! Thanks so much for compiling the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs list and for letting us vote on our favorites. It was a very nice thing to do :-)

  15. Jasia,
    As you know and as I wrote to Diana Haddad today, the California Genealogical Society and Library blog owes its start to the series you wrote on Declining Memberships and the magazine's article about it and you. That was almost three years ago and now I'm being honored along side you in its pages. That's amazing! It is a testament to your sage advice and counsel. You continue to inspire me and so many others. Thank you for all you do for the gen-community. Congratulations!

  17. Yeah for Creative Gene! Our "gathering place" for the Carnival of Genealogy and the home for your personal family history stories certainly deserves this honor. Congratulations, Jasia!
