Gena's Genealogy made the My Heritage Top 100 Genealogy Sites

While I was gone I was surprised to find out that my blog was nominated to the MyHeritage.com's Top 100 Genealogy Sites. 

According to the My Heritage blog they wanted to find "hidden" gems, which I may be considered since I don't think I am nearly as popular as some of the others mentioned.  They write, "We wanted to identify and give recognition to websites which offered high-quality content, were innovative in topic or design, and which were frequently updated with new content. 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."

To say I am honored is an understatement.  It is wonderful when you find out that people read and like your blog and it's even more terrific to be honored by a company. 

Check out the list of other sites, over 70 are other genealogy bloggers.  You just may find a few new favorites!
