Honored To Be Nominated!


The California Genealogical Society and Library blog is honored to be included in the Local/ Regional category of Family Tree Magazine's 40 Best Genealogy Blogs nominees.

Voting is open from now until November 5, 2009. The process is one that the magazine is using to identify the "Best 40" for a future article:
The top 80 vote-getting blogs will make it through to a "final" round, and our editorial staff will select 40 blogs from that list. The Family Tree 40 will be announced in the May 2010 Family Tree Magazine and in the Genealogy Insider e-mail newsletter.


Among the nominees are several other CGS member blogs:

GeneaBlogie by Craig Manson

Heritage Happens by Cheryl Fleming Palmer

Destination: Austin Family by Thomas MacEntee

Steve's Genealogy Blog by Stephen Danko

The Educated Genealogist by Sheri Fenley

The really exciting news is that you can meet ALL of these bloggers in person this coming Saturday, October 10, 2009 at the Blog Your Genealogy workshop. If you haven't signed up yet, please email us and let us know you are coming!

And please go vote for your favorite blogs!
