Once again, the excitement is mounting as readers find out what I consider to be best of my blogs for 2010 in several categories.
First - Best Biography and Best Documentary goes to [drum roll] Emily Pugh Iles - Carnival of Genealogy Tribute to Women and its sequel Emily Pugh Iles - Who were her parents?
I have spoken about Emily frequently during talks as her story and the research I have done can be used as examples for many topics. The tribute to her received many comments.
The Best Screen Play goes to [drum roll] May 31, 1985 - the day of the Barrie tornado. - the settings would be Barrie and Owen Sound. As per usual, I don't know who I would cast in the various roles but there is lots of drama in the story.
The Best Picture goes to [drum roll] a photo of my uncle Bill and his cousin Madeline. They are both about the same age. It is a cute photo of the two of them, but what makes the photo special is that children of Madeline saw a photo of her that they had never seen before. Both live in Europe.
The Best Comedy goes to [drum roll] a photo called Who Caught all those Fish? Everyone is all dressed up but they are holding a string of fish.
Now those are my choices. Do you agree? All the best to all the other genealogy bloggers. I hope you had some postings that you choose to highlight.
