The recipients of the 2011 Family Tree Magazine Top 40 Genealogy Blogs Awards
were announced yesterday and I honored to have been selected once more. I want
to thank the readers who voted for West in New England and I am humbled that
you enjoy my posts enough to vote for me.

I'd also like to thank the Expert Panel of Judges for the work they put into this, all
of whom have long been bloggers I've tried to emulate.

Finally, I'd like to congratulate not just the other recipients but the other nominees
as well. I am proud to be numbered among such wonderful writers and
geneabloggers. I'm especially proud of the contingent of New England bloggers
who keep me on my toes in trying to equal the quality of their blogs.

You'll notice I say "recipient" and not "winner." That's because there are no winners
or losers this. We are all part of a fast-growing community that is filled with talented
people who are ready and willing to help each other and share our knowledge.

In that, we are all winners!
