I don't see my blog on your list. LOL! I'm totally kidding. Appreciate you and others who post these lists and do so much for this blogging community. I've been a member of Geneabloggers for four months and have learned so much from all of you.

A game changer for me was when I received "An Early Christmas Gift" and had the opportunity to share it with this blogging community. I'm still blogging about it over a month later. You might say that instead of talking too much I blog too much (that was the case with "An Early Christmas Gift.")
I've told them more than they would ever want to know, but blogging helps me organize my research when I share it with other people.

Regards, Grant

Grant, you are very welcome! I love gathering interesting links all in one place and it makes me glad to hear that others enjoy it as well. I'm also happy to hear that you are getting so much out of genealogy blogging! Here's to many more posts!
