"Friendly Bloggers Award" - Thank you Gini

What a pleasure to wake up this morning and see this in my mailbox! Thank you, Gini, you've made my day!

This is a completely new experience for me, as most everything about blogging is, so I have set about to try to complete the responsibilities that come with this honor. Another blogging lesson!

I have figured out how to download the image, and post it to the site. I must now send this along to 7 members of the blogging community whose work I enjoy. This may be hard, as there are so many--

Cindy, at Everything's Relative. I know she has already been awarded, but I love the photos and family stories.

Julie, at Genblog. I always learn something, and thanks for the tip on the Irish Genealogical Research site.

Shades of the Departed, because I have inherited boxes of photos, and she has helped me try to date them with her examples....and I love the graphics on her page.

Randy, at Genea-Musings...another reason to look forward to Saturday. He has probably been nominated by many, so just add my name to the list!

Earline, at Ancestral Notes...thanks for reminding me about a genealogical will. I'd hate for all this work to go to waste!

Wibbling Jo...I LOVE the name, and I feel a kindred spirit also new to the blogging game.

Small-leaved Shamrock. I know my DeHoritys are Irish, and this site is a real celebration of Irish-American pride.

So, that's my list! Thanks to all of the above for their inspiration!


  1. Mary - Thanks so much for thinking of me! I'm glad you're enjoying my blog! I still want to compare notes on that last name of yours!

    Thank you again - I'm honored!

  2. Thanks very much, Mary, for the honor. I hope you'll join us for some upcoming editions of the Carnival of Irish Heritage & Culture.
