We are really very flattered to have been selected by Mary, author of the AncestorTracking blog and a loyal reader, to be a recipient of the Kreativ Blogger Award, that medal of appreciation created by Huldal on her blog, originally for four of her blogging friends. We have been reading AncestorTracking since she first contacted us and find it not only a very attractive blog but fascinating reading. Thank you so much, Mary, for reading The French Genealogy Blog and for deeming it worthy of this award.
Originally, there were no obligations for Huldal's recipients, but in the delightful way of the internet's customs, the Kreativ Blogger Award has grown and taken on a life of its own. Now, a recipient is to list 7 things he or she loves or at least likes; and then to select 7 other blogs to receive the award. Well, we do not intend to sink any deeper into the personal than all ready appears here in the "Identity Wars" posts, so we will not be naming our favourite film or jam. However, we think that the 7 and 7 requirement could be very useful for our readers were they to relate to the best in French Genealogy. Thus:
Seven Things That We Love About French Genealogy
Seven Blogs To Which We Wish to Send the Kreativ Blogger Award:
- Généprovence - a clean and delightful blog about the genealogy and history of Provence. Each post is fascinating and there are some lovely photos.
- Geneablog - rather busy and cluttered but full of the current affairs of French genealogy.
- Des racines et des êtres - a very personal, meditative blog about genealogy in Calvados.
- Genealibre - this is a bit of a difficult read, but it is full of useful information on free software applied to genealogy uses, the blogger's passion.
- Recherches généalogiques - a minimalist blog with bare facts for those doing genealogical research of military personnel. Lots of free information as PDFs.
- BibliOdyssey - a blog we gaze at when we are in need of resuscitation.
- French Word-A-Day - Kristin Espinasse's hugely popular blog about life in France is true to the mark every time. She has just published a new book based on her posts.
Again, we are most grateful for this token of reader appreciation.
