The meme rules are:
- Only 5 people are allowed to receive this award.
- 4 of them followers of your blog.
- One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world.
- You must link back to who ever gave you the award.
This was rather difficult – not because there aren’t at least five bloggers I’d like to honor. In fact, my personal BFF list has much more than five. But, nearly every genea-blogger I know (and several that are new to me), have already received this award. So, there may be some recycling in this list…if you’ve already received the BFF award, just consider yourself doubly-loved! My BFF awards go to:
- Lisa of 100 Years in America. Lisa actually is the author of 3 genealogy blogs that I enjoy very much, but I chose the one I found first. I’ve been a fan ever since.
- Tim Agazio of Genealogy Reviews Online. Tim and I technically work for the same “company” (Uncle Sam). I always learn something new at his blog.
- Six talented genea-bloggers have combined their talents to create Facebook®Bootcame for Genea-Bloggers. It just appeared on the genea-blogging scene, but it’s already given me some very useful advice. Thanks to Denise, Terry, Kathryn, Miriam, fM, and Thomas, who get a group BFF award only because they’ve already been tagged by others for their individual work.
- Taneya at Taneya’s Genealogy Blog is a relatively new find for me. Hopefully, you’ll like her blog as much as I do – and she’s got a brand new home for her blog that looks great!
- As for someone that is new to my blog and lives “in another part of the world”… Ruth Stephens from Bluebonnet Country Genealogy. And yes, Bluebonnet Country is technically a different part of the world than Philadelphia. Even though Ruth already received the BFF from Terry Thornton (Thanks, Ter, first you shame me into Facebook, and now this! But, you’re still a BFF to me, too!), Ruth gets an extra one because she is willing to be my cousin (like so many other genea-bloggers have connected). That is, she’s willing as long as I can find a family surname that she can spell! I’m working on that one, Ruth, but my “Miller” name doesn’t have a -ski so that might qualify.
