The site ScanMyPhotos.com has presented "The 2008 Artistry of Genealogy Awards." The winners were selected by customers of ScanMyPhotos.com. The "Best Personal Genealogy Blog" appears to be shared by Miriam Robbins Midkiff"s Ancestories: The Stories of My Ancestors and Renee's Genealogy Blog by Renee Zamora. The Best Ongoing Family History Story was Jasia's Creative Gene.
I highly recommend all three! Check out the ScanMyPhotos blog for more great sites of use to genealogists.
And speaking of Jasia, her great work in originating and sponsoring the Carnival of Genealogy is recognized in the current issue of Internet Genealogy. Well-deserved!
Finally, in the blogosphere, Shades of the Departed has debuted. Under the artistic guidance of The Collector (photonym of the footnoteMaven), we view parts of an extensive collection of photographs and learn about analysis, dating, and other things. Highly recommended.
