has begun. We have until November 30th, 2010 to submit
the names of our favorite geneablogs as nominees in one
of the following eight categories:

on research in a specific county, state or region. Most
library and archive blogs, as well as many local historical
and genealogical society blogs, would go here.

Heritage groups: Blogs focusing on the family history of
a specific ethnic, religious or national background (such
as African-American, Jewish, Polish, etc.)

Research advice and how-to: Blogs that primarily
explain how to research, analyze photos or perform
various family history tasks. The blogger offers tips,
strategies and examples; explains genealogical concepts;
and writes about how to use new resources.

Cemeteries: These blogs feature content primarily
about cemetery research and visiting cemeteries.
Many feature tombstone photos and transcriptions,
with information about those interred.

“My Family History”: Blogs about the blogger’s
own roots, including accounts of personal research,
their own family photos and heirlooms, stories,
recipes, etc.

“Everything” blogs: Blogs that cover it all—genealogy
news, research advice, opinions, local history, family
stories, etc.—go here.

New blogs: Was the blog you’re nominating launched
during the past year? Categorize it here, even if it would
also fit into another category.
