When one is recuperating from a bug, it is nice to hear from friends providing good news.
Such was the case with two emails in two days - from geneablogger FootnoteMaven and Jeremy Frankel (president of the San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society - both informing Tracing the Tribe that we were featured in the spring issue of the UK genealogy magazine, Your Family Tree.
Jeremy, now visiting in the UK, is bringing back a copy of the issue for us.
Alan Crosby wrote an excellent article about genealogy blogging and mentioned the "Top Three: Unsung Heroes," including Tracing the Tribe.
Heritage of Wales and The Victorianist.
His story noted another good friend - Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers.com. Crosby mentioned that Thomas now lists some 1,200 categorized genealogy blogs, but a more accurate count is now in the neighborhood of 1,700!
Dick Eastman and other US and UK geneabloggers were mentioned in the story, which gave a nuts and bolts take on setting up a genealogy blog.
It also shows off Tracing the Tribe's logo, designed by the above-mentioned - and very talented - FootnoteMaven!
Thank you, Alan Crosby!
