One Lovely Blog Award!

I was honored to be presented the "One Lovely Blog Award: by both Lori at of  Genealogy and Me and Judy at UK-Australia Genealogy.  (Nice to be offered from across the ocean, Judy!)  I am so glad you all are enjoying my blog.  Along with the award comes the following responsibilities:

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.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

I have chosen the following 15 blogs...If you haven't already discovered them, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Flint Hills of Kansas
Why? Because this is a very informative blog on an area near and dear to my heart.  I used to live in this neck of the woods.  The Leaches, Reaughs, and Crouses lived here on my side, and my husband has the Andress's who still live in the Alta Vista area.  Thanks Dr. Bill!  Your blog brings back many fine memories!

Stiffs and Stones Over Thy Dead Body
What can I say...I love the name! I also can relate with Jennifer's passion for traipsing around cemetaries with a camera! 

Barking Up Our Family Tree
I can relate with her drive to push on with genealogy after her mother died....When my Dad passed away he was the last link on his side of the tree...

Nick Gombash's Genealogy Blog
Nick is young, but he writes a good blog on Hungarian genealogy!  What...nno Hungarian roots...weeell, he's not too bad at German genealogy either...and who can resist a fellow gardener?

The Lost Fort
Gabriele lives in Germany and has a WONDERFUL blog chock full about life and times in the middle ages in Europe.  Fascinating!

Kentucky in My Heart
What a witty blogger!...altho this should be no surprise since she also writes the Diary of a Mad Genealogist it!!!

Two Bubbles Off Center
Oh she's good!   Harold's Daughter already has the One Lovely Blog Award...but what the hey!   Her blog is how I think I would like to write about my ancestors some day.  Love her use of pictures to make it all more real! 

American Pomeroy Historic Genealogic Association
What can I say?  I have some Pomeroys up my tree....!

Ancestral Wormhole
OMG - I need to copy over ALL my VHS!  like - YESTERDAY! Just enough tech info to appease the geek in me, combined with  genealogy. Thank you!

Haplogroup H
Because I am still trying to wrap my mind around DNA -speak!  FINALLY!  Somebody is here to help me make heads and tails of it!

Genealogy Guide Poland
My husband is Polish, and My Mom was born in what is now Poland.  How can I not recommend them for the One Lovely Blog Award?  I would love to go on one of their tours someday....

Al's Polish American Genealogy Research
WOW! Al packs a ton of info into his blog....It's like opening presents at Christmas!

Illinois Genealogical Society
The Kansas side of the Leaches and Reaughs settled there from Illinois in 1876. It was Illinois' strong presense on the web that helped me break through my first brick walls.  Thank you for that!

Mckinney, Texas Public Library Genealogy Blog
What a gem of a blog!  I went here not sure what to expect.  My husband's ancestors had an historic home in McKinney - The John Faires home is at the Chestnut Square Historical Village and is the oldest still standing home in McKinney. But more than that, this blog is great at keeping you in the loop of what is out there to help us check our genealogical sources! 

Prince William County Virginia Genealogy Cool!  If I am not mistaken, I need to pour through this blog.  Now that I have found out that my family has been in America since dirt...some came through Prince William County, VA.  Lots of enticing tidbits to be found here! 

So there you have it folks!  My 15 blog choices for the One Lovely Blog Award.  What a brilliant brainstorm someone had when they developed the One Lovely Blog Award concept.  GREAT Marketing!  Now go forth and Blog!


  1. Hello, thank you so much for the award and stopping by my blog. I have only been blogging since February so the award is most encouraging. You also have an interesting blog, I felt hungry after reading the articles!
    Happy blogging………Tony

  2. You are most welcome Tony! I really like "ancestral wormhole" - you are doing a great job! Thought of your blog last night in fact - as I stumbled upon some VHS tapes that I have GOT to move over to DVD. I know that compresses them now, after reading your post - but even that would be favorable to losing the data alltogether! Glad you also enjoyed my blog. Keep up the good work!
