The Proximidade Award


I received a nice surprise today when Kathryn Doyle of California Genealogical Society and Library and Cheryle Hoover Davis of Surnames and Hernames - A Genealogy Blog awarded my blogs, Genealogy Traces and The Graveyard Rabbit of the Covered Bridges, the Proximidade Award. Thanks so much, Kathryn and Cheryle! I'm honored.

The blogs who receive the Proximidade Award invest and believe in PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers, who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Here are eight blogs I've begun following and on whom I wish to bestow this award:
Bluebonnet Country Genealogy by Ruth Stephens
Gramma's House by Becky Jamison
Obituaries and the Stories They don't Tell by Linda Stienstra
Before My Time by TK Sand
Creative Gene by Jasia Smasha
Spence-Lowry Family History by A. Spence
I Dream of Genea(logy) by Amir Dekel
Amy's Genealogy, etc. Blog by Amy Johnson Crow
Gtownma's Genealogy by Tina Sansone

I'm leaving a note on each of their latest posts. If you haven't discovered these fantastic folks, now's your chance!

Oh my goodness, Judy! Thank you for the Proximidade Award. Now I've received one on each of my two blogs--I'm so honored. I'll get busy on this and pass it on to 8 others--if I can find 8 who haven't received it.I'll do my best. Thanks again. Your blog certainly deserves it. I love it--also your Covered Bridges blog. Haven't checked out your Food Gratitude yet.
Becky, I should have checked all of your blogs before sending this. I KNOW how hard it is to find 8 others. But you deserve it for both of them. I love to read them. Thank you for following mine. Cheers.
I want to apologize to Cindy for totally missing her awarding me the Proximidade back on December 22. Somehow I missed it. I truly appreciate her and her dedication to my blog and others.

Her email of this morning appears below.

Thanks you, Cindy!

Judy -
Congrats on the Proximindade award! I wonder if you even saw my note about it that I sent to you on Dec 22? I knew that the Holidays were upon us and many wouldn't be checking email - probably got lost in the shuffle. Looks like lots of folks have good taste in genea blogs! Anyway, glad you got it one way or another :-)

Happy New Year!!! I hope you have a great one!

Crazy Sign over Bankhead Highway

This most unique sign has been one of my most enduring childhood memories. I was born in 1943 and it was there at that time, I'm sure, because there are other postcards or photographs that have been dated 1940. I got married in 1964, moved to Tennessee with my husband of a year, visited my hometown several times during the 25 years I lived away from Texas, and sometime during that time the sign was removed. I was so sick when I discovered the sign gone. I suppose progress has a way of doing that to you!

There are many websites that tell the story of the healing mineral waters of my hometown of Mineral Wells and the many wells and spas that drew thousands of visitors seeking the rejuvenating powers of these waters. You will find the story of their discovery and the subsequent growth of the town very in…

Doc Gailey and His Sisters

Gailey Children James Dolphus Gailey Grace Amanda Gailey Nellie Mae Gailey
Children of James Newton Gailey and Eleanor Elizabeth Brock Brock Community, Parker County, Texas

My grandfather, James Dolphus "Doc" Gailey, had two younger sisters whom he adored. Grace and Nell were doted on by him and his parents and they grew up so attached to one another, their sibling love and devotion was a thing to be admired. I feel it gave all of their children and grandchildren an example to learn from and a standard to strive for. It was always such fun when the aunts came to visit. Some of you may remember that Doc and Grandma raised me so I, more often than not, call my mother's aunts my aunts, when in reality they were my great-aunts. And my sisters and I would usually go with Doc and Grandma to the aunts' houses to visit, so I find myself remembering things about them that my 1st cousins do not.
All three of Jim and Elizabeth's children were born in the Brock community of Parker …
