The Proximidade Award!
The footnoteMaven has just awarded my blog an award! I'm tickled pick for any award, but this one has extra special meaning because it means that someone is still following this blog, which has been more dormant that I'd like. I promise to do better with my research next year, and you'll see that I'm serious when I post the "After the Clean-up" pictures. Head over to my Orations blog post "15 months DO make a difference" to see what I mean!
You'll note that this award is given in part to blogs that aim to find and be friends. Since several cousins of mine have found this blog and have contributed to it, this is a special award that I present in turn to them: Joyce, Pat, Pat, Eileen, Mike, Jim, Jim, Clairellen: Thank you for contacting me, contributing to my information, reading my blog, and helping me re-connect branches long thought snapped.
I would also like to pass the award on to fellow bloggers who share my same goals:
Cat at Diggin' Up Dirt
Terry at Desktop Genealogist Unplugged
Kathryn at the California Genealogical Society and Library Blog
Carolyn, to help her get started with her new blog, Haas and Grimm Family From Baden Germany
Judith at Genealogy Traces
Lori at Smoky Mountain Family Historian
Marie at MarieB's Genealogy Blog-Southeastern USA, whose blog I need to visit more often, and I hope she adds a "Comment" link soon!
Bob Franks and the Itawamba History Review
Thanks, Maven for the award.
