Earlier this year, this award went around the genea-blogger (and “normal” blogger) community. I was fortunate to receive this award from Sheri of Grandma’s Stitches. Just recently I was given this award again – from Karen at Twigs to Roots. Karen has recently begun her foray into the blogging world and has jumped in with both feet! Please travel to her blog and give her a big geneablogger welcome!
As part of receiving this award, I am to list seven things about myself:
- I am back in college again!
- My new grandson will be 2 months old on Saturday!
- I love Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte!
- I get to take the day “off” for Thanksgiving this year as one of my daughter’s is having it at her house for the first time!
- All of my grandsons have blue eyes.
- I’m almost at the tail end of the “baby boomer” generation!
- I am secretary for the PTA at my grandson’s elementary school!
Next, I’m to Award this to other blogs that I enjoy. I’d like to try to highlight some that are new to me – since this award has already been around to several.
A Tale of Two Ancestors by Amanda Acquard. Amanda must be the sister I didn’t know I had because we share the same interests – history, genealogy, and travel (though I haven’t been able to do that!). She is currently in graduate school and working toward becoming a genealogy reference librarian. Although I am currently only working toward my associates degree, I had decided I would very much like a career as a historical archivist – whether for a library or a museum – but that is a very long way off! Stop by and say hi to Amanda!
Diggin Up Dirt by Cat. She posts interesting articles about her own genealogy research and the information she’s been able to obtain. I find it useful to see what she and other’s have found – especially when I need a slight nudge in the right direction. Stop by and read some of her interesting posts.
And I’m sure there are many more I could honor with this award – however, I want to make sure others have the opportunity to award it!
Thanks, Karen, for the award! And congratulations to all who receive it!
