AnceStories Chosen as One of MyHeritage.com's Top 100 Genealogy Sites

Top genealogy site awards


AnceStories has been honored to be listed among MyHeritage.com's Top 100 Genealogy Sites! The criteria for this award were as follows:
1) high quality content;
2) originality in topic choice, approach and design; and
3) frequently updated content. 
In today's announcement, they said:
We also put some emphasis on finding hidden gems in the community, and bringing sites to attention which currently have relatively small audiences. As such, there are a number of lesser-known sites included, and a few more prominent sites unmentioned for the same reason.
Thank you so much for this award, and congratulations to all the other winners!

Miriam, I am so happy for you, and your blog is simply wonderful. Your state lists of genealogy sites has been most useful to me, and I love your dedication to it. Thank you.

Congratuations Miriam, it's well deserved!

Miriam said...

Thank you, Barbara and Cheryl!

Barbara, the state archives series has been a labor of love: I both love it and labor at it. Sometimes it is very difficult to find many links, and sometimes there are too many to go through! It's also hard to keep at it every week, but I find so many tidbits, I'm addicted!

Thanks, Sheri!
