Family Tree Magazine’s Hit Parade

Best Genealogy Blogs badgeFamily Tree Magazine was the first “mainstream” genealogy entity to recognize the potential of genealogy blogging when they included bloggers in their  101 Winning Web Sites article back in September 2007. Soon bloggers got their own list – the Top 40 – and Family Tree Magazine has spotlighted bloggers in many other ways too. Genealogy blogging has become a force in the genealogy community and Family Tree Magazine has done a lot to “raise the volume” of our voices. Thank you for that.

It was a great honor to have my Family Matters blog recognized in that first group and over the years Family Tree Magazine has introduced me to a number of other fascinating and informative bloggers. I am no less honored that Moultrie Creek is included in this year’s Top 40. Even better, I see a lot of friends on the list and several blogs that are new to me. I look forward to including them in my daily reading list.
