Honored by Family Tree Magazine!

Diane Haddad, Managing Editor of Family Tree Magazine informed me that the California Genealogical Society and Library blog was named to the "Family Tree 40" after being voted one of the Family Tree Magazine 40 Best Genealogy blogs!

The awards were given in several categories, as follows*:

All-Around
Cemetery
Corporate
Genetic Genealogy
Heritage
How-To
Local & Regional
News & Resources
Photos & Heirlooms
Personal & Family

In the online version of the magazine article, which appears in the May 2010 issue, Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective, had this to say about the CGSL blog:
Even though I don’t have California roots, this is one of my personal favorites—you get a feel for this community that hangs together to solve genealogical problems. Society member Kathryn Doyle delivers news about the group, as well as local genealogy events and resources. On Wordless Wednesday, you get a peek behind the scenes of the organization.
Thank you, Maureen; thank you Family Tree Magazine and thank you to everyone who voted! I'm honored to be listed with such august company!

Kathryn,
Congratulations!! You definitely earned this recognition after all of the hours you spend on the blog (and the eNews).

You keep us updated on CGS events and happenings around and in the genealogy community as much as humanly possible.

This is a well deserved recognition!!

Congratulations, Kathryn. Your blog makes me wish I lived in California and was a member of your society. Too bad I don't have any California ancestors!

That is good news. And great for your group as well. I am glad you listed it here. I was curious who they were. It is always good for me to see what goes into being a good blogger. Always learning. There are some blogger mags. Do you ever browse them?
