Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

 I was busy yesterday packing for our family vacation in Florida. I checked in on my emails and Google Reader late in the day and imagine my surprise to find out The Armchair Genealogist had been chosen among the Best Genealogy Blogs for 2011 as named by Family Tree Magazine.
I am truly humbled to make this list. I am very passionate about family history and I am thrilled that my passion has flowed through to my readers.

Thank you to all those who voted, I am truly grateful. I'm heading out in the morning for a long drive but with a big smile on my face.

I want to thank Family Tree Magazine and the Top 40 panel, Lisa Louise Cooke from Genealogy Gems, Thomas from Geneabloggers, Randy from Genea-Musings and Dear Myrtle as well as the entire Geneablogging community for being a wonderful supportive community.

Congrats to all those who made the top 40 List I am honoured to be in your company and look forward to a great year in genealogy blogging.
