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!
