Inside History Magazine's Top 50 Genealogy Blogs List

I have funny story.

Earlier this week, Inside History Magazine published a list of their top 50 genealogy blogs. 

I subscribe to many genealogy blogs in Australia and New Zealand, which is the target market of this magazine. 

Naturally, there were a lot of happy bloggers who were excited to make the list. I offered many congratulatory comments on their blogs because it's always cool to celebrate with another blogger. 

The funny thing is that when I congratulated one blogger, he told me thanks and said, "Same to you."


I've been so busy with my own work and trying to keep up with my genealogy blog reading that I hadn't even looked at the Inside History Magazine Top 50 Genealogy Blogs yet.

So I did.

And there I was.

I might be a little late to the party, but it's an honor to be included. Thank you to the kind folks at Inside History Magazine for the nod. I'd also like to extend a special thanks to the article author, Jill Ball of Geniaus and other genealogy endeavors (or do you spell it endeavours down there?)

It is an honor (honour? I'll get the hang of this) to be included with so many great blogs and bloggers. I follow many Australia and New Zealand genealogy blogs. I've learned so much from them. Some day I'll get down that way and go on a genealogy blogger meet-up tour.

Now I will go on with my day with a smile on my face. This was a nice surprise.


  1. What fun for you (but no surprise that your blog would be one of the 50 best!). Congratulations, Amy.

  2. Congratulations! and thanks for introducing me to a new magazine.

  3. Awesome!! Congratulations! Or as they would say Down Under, Good on ya Mate!

  4. How funny! I was not surprised at all to see you on the list. Your spot was well deserved, congratulations!

    Yes, honour and endeavour it is. A blogger meet-up tour sounds like fun. Come on down!

    1. As was yours Shelley. Hope you're having a happy Mother's Day :)

  5. The nod is well deserved! A blogger tour, now that is a good idea! 2013 maybe?

  6. Congratulations, Amy!
    You do a great job!

  7. Most certainly well deserved Amy ... congrats!
