One Lovely Blog Award

In my last post, I mentioned the "One Lovely Blog Award" I had received. Here are the rules for acceptance:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted the award and their blog link.
2. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you've newly discovered.
3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

So, here is my list of 15 blogs that I'm passing the award along to. Some of them are newly discovered, and some are blogs I've followed for a while.

1. Renee’s Genealogy Blog, by Renee Zamora - lots of great info for the Utah genealogy scene (including FamilySearch updated) and beyond

2. Greta’s Genealogy Bog, by Greta Koehl Her blog post from March 11 has got to be the funniest one I have ever read!

3. Nutfield Genealogy, by Heather Rojo

4. AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors, by Miriam Midkiff I wrote about Miriam’s blog in an article some time back in Discovering Family History called “Genealogy Blogs You Need to Read.”

5. The Accidental Genealogist, by Lisa Alzo

6. FrustratedGenealogist, by FrustratedSue – This one is brand new.

7. Amy’s Genealogy, etc. Blog, by Amy Johnson Crow

10. Growing Up in Willow Creek, Mary Nunn Maki

15. BeNotForgot, by Vickie Everhart


  1. Wow, Leslie, I'm so flattered that you are reading my blog, and even more happy that you like it and offered this nice award. I no longer participate in listing blogs since I already recieved the Lovely Blog Award three times. But I appreciate your thoughtfulness and I’ve just learned some new blogs to follow with your list! I’ll be posting something on my blog soon about your thoughtfulness.

  2. Thank you very much, Leslie! And I'm so happy that you are going to be out our way next weekend.

  3. Leslie, Thank you so much for selecting my blog as one of the ones to receive this award. You were sweet to make mention that you knew I don't accept them, but I do have manners, and wanted to thank you. I absolutely love yours, the minute I see yours, I drop everything to read it. Thank you.

  4. Leslie: Thank you so much for the award. You are very kind to include me. I love writing the blog, and I love reading yours. See you at NERGC!
