A few days ago, Polly Kimmitt, author of Pollyblog - How to Juggle Genealogy and Life, awarded us our second Ancestor Approved Award (above, sort of Warholled) , for which we are most honoured and grateful. As per the rules and regulations of the award, and quoting Polly:
"The “Ancestor Approved Award” was created by Leslie Ann of "Ancestors Live Here" in March 2010, and has been passed along to many genealogical bloggers. Recipients are asked to make a list of ten things they have learned about their ancestors that have humbled, surprised, or enlightened them. Then they are to pass on the award to ten other bloggers who are doing their ancestors proud."
We are, as ever, humbled, surprised, enlightened by the many more than ten archivists and librarians around France who do their all to provide an excellent service to the patrons of their facilities.
We now pass on the award to ten others whom we would recommend to our readers:
- The website of Béatrice and Gilles Bataille-Winterhalter - not a blog but an excellent and clearly lovingly created and maintained site about Alsace and genealogical research of the Alsatians.
- The French GeneaWiki - also not a blog but we find it a fabulous resource.
- La Gazette de nos ancêtres - the blog of Sophie Boudarel
- Carnet de Web Généalogie - the blog of Gilles Dubois, and a good example of how genealogy is done in France
- Des Racines et des êtres - the blog of Raphaél Piéchaud, less formal than most.
- Généaligne - a blog that focuses on genealogy of the Vosges region
- Sacrés Ancêtres! - a personal blog that covers research in the Alpes Maritimes
- Merline's Quest -The blog is fairly new, but the author has been researching her genealogy for 32 years
- Genbecle - a family research blog with many discoveries about resources different from the usual
- Coco Jobo - a blog about Sarthe genealogy
We have noticed that genealogy blogging has recently really taken off in France. Nice that the online community is growing.
