FTM's Top 40 Genealogy Blogs in 2013

Thank you Family Tree Magazine for picking this blog as one of the Top 40 in this year’s list.

They say that –

“This daily blog about Canadian genealogy, heritage and history is crafted by Elizabeth Lapointe, a member of the Ontario Genealogical Society and editor of its newsletter. Though not technically an official blog of the society, this newsy and tip-filled site reads like a lively one”.

And we must not forget the other Canadian blogs that were mentioned –

• The Armchair Genealogist

• Olive Tree Genealogy

My congratulations to all of the bloggers who made and didn’t make the list.

Congratulations Elizabeth! And well deserved too!

Elizabeth Lapointe said...

Thank you so much, Malcolm.

I was surprised by the news, but I am doing the happy dance this morning!


Sean said...

Congratulations. It's well deserved, because I appreciate how regularly it is updated and how it usually has "news I can use". It is also one of the few blogs I'll actually recommend to new people starting out.

Elizabeth Lapointe said...

Hello, Sean,

I am glad to hear that you recommend the blog to people just starting out. That's great!
