The Proximidade Award

Janet Iles of Janet the Researcher and Amir Dekel of I Dream of Genea(logy) awarded me with the Proximidade Award:
These blogs invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I love how many of the recipients are forwarding this award on to newer genea-bloggers! It's that kind of spirit which includes the newbies as well as us "oldies" that makes the genea-blogging community such a welcoming one! I decided to gift some of my fellow "oldies" before they got "taken". They are all pioneers in the genea-blogging movement, and their blogs are all on my must-read list:

The footnoteMaven
Jasia of Creative Gene
Craig Manson of GeneaBlogie
Terry Thornton of Hill Country of Monroe County, Mississippi
Randy Seaver of Genea-Musings
Kathryn Doyle of the California Genealogical Society and Library Blog
Lisa Louise Cooke of Genealogy Gems News
Denise Olsen of Moultrie Creek

And thank you, Janet and Amir! I'm honored!

Hi Miriam and Happy New Year!

Thanks so much for honoring me with The Proximidade Award. I'm on deadline for the CGS January 2009 e-News but I'll forward it on as soon as I can.


P.S. Take care of that shoulder.
