Congrats to Jasia, Merriam and Renee!

The Carnival of Genealogy hosted by Jasia at Creative Gene has been spot-lighted by Janice Nickerson in an article in the April/May issue of InternetGenealogy. Janice says, in part, "If you’re new to the “blogosphere” and want a quick way to find genealogy bloggers, and see what their posts are like, this is a great way to find a whole bunch of quality writers and get their takes on the latest theme. If you’re a blogger who writes about genealogy-related topics, this is just the ticket for getting your work noticed, and learning from other like-minded people." Couldn't have said it better myself ;-)

In addition, the 2008 Artistry of Genealogy Award Winners have been announced. What's that? Well, according to the blog: "Serving as a source of inspiration and recognition to showcase outstanding genealogy websites, the 2008 Artistry of Genealogy Awards (AGA) recognizes excellence in preserving family history through genealogy. The categories and winners were selected by consumers across the country who had their photo memories digitally preserved by ScanMyPhotos.com."

The award for the category of "Best Ongoing Family History Story" went to Jasia at Creative Gene: Genealogy and More.

Miriam Midkiff’s Blog, AnceStories: The Stories of My Ancestors, and Renee Zamora's Renee's Genealogy Blog were selected in the "Best Personal Genealogy Blog" category.

In all, there were 15 genealogy websites and blogs recognized in various categories. Check 'em out! Congratulations to Jasia, Merriam, Renee and all the others that were recognized.
