The May 2010 Family Tree Magazine is on its way to subscribers, so it’s time to reveal the listing of the 40 genealogy blogs you all nominated and voted as favorites.

That’s not to say, of course, that there aren’t many more stellar blogs among the hundreds family historians use to chronicle their successes and brick walls, share history, offer genealogy guidance and more. All their legions of posts add up to an extraordinary store of collective knowledge about how to discover, preserve and celebrate your family history.

We’re hoping this look at the genealogy blogosphere inspires you to go exploring for more blogs to add to your reader.

See our online article for more on the “FT40,” as well as tools to find more genealogy blogs.

Congratulations to the following Family Tree 40 bloggers (listed in alphabetical order by category). We admire their writing, research and photography skills, and applaud their work to promote the pursuit of family history. I hope their blogs will proudly wear the Family Tree 40 logo!

  1. My blog is substantially better than most of the ones listed under Personal & Family. I have more genealogy content, more current news, tons of references, links and photos, including a full genealogy website to back it all up. Did no one actually vote for my blog, or was the contest rigged, as most of these things are? Regards, Mark

  2. Diane –

    Thanks to you and all the Family Tree Magazine staff for taking the time to focus on the emergence of genealogy blogging and its impact on the web by highlighting these chosen blogs. I am honored that Small-leaved Shamrock is included within your list along with many other great genealogy blogs, many of which I read regularly (along with yours).

    I look forward to receiving the latest issue of your magazine and hope that your article will bring new readers to many of these blogs and also encourage a few more family historians to try their hand at blogging.
