One thing that happened during my summer school adventure was that Bill West of West In New England tagged me (along with four others) with The Thinking Blogger Award. I appreciate very much the peer recognition that’s the inherent basis of this meme.
Now I’m to tag five other bloggers in similar fashion. Because of summer school, I got to this rather slowly and some that I tag may already have been tagged. But here’s my list:
Writing the Westward Sagas by David Bowles: The writing here is delightful and informative. Bowles describes himself as a “tale spinner,” and indeed, no other description could be as accurate.
The Practical Archivist by Sally Jacobs: Like David Bowles, Sally Jacobs has precisely accurately slef-described her work. This is a great place to find down-to-earth advice, tips, and hints that every historian, genealogist and archivist can really use.
Ancestories by Miriam Robbins Midkiff: An accomplished writer, Miriam is a thinking, researching genealogist as well. Her posts about her ancestral families are poignant. She shares information about her genealogical society work, too; we clearly see how much she loves doing what she does.
Begat Chat: An example of Katie’s thoughtful contributions was her recent post I Only Have an Hour! What Can I Accomplish?
There re so many thoughtful bloggers that picking those five was not very easy. Now go check out how this all got started: The Thinking Blog.
Again, thanks to Bill, for recognizing GeneaBlogie.
