I’m delighted and very honoured to have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by Aillin at Australian Genealogy Journeys.  Thank you so much Aillin for this lovely surprise.  🙂  🙂  🙂  (See, it’s making me smile a lot)!!

We are given very few rules for accepting the award and they are as follows:

1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted the award and their blog link. 

2. Pass the award on to 15 other blogs that you’ve newly discovered.

3. Remember to contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.

The 15 other blogs I have chosen to pass the One Lovely Blog Award on to are mainly fairly new ones to me and I have chosen them because I have found them interesting, helpful, and always a pleasure to visit.  Some also combine scrapbooking with their genealogy, which is something I like very much and some cover research in the UK, as I do.

Congratulations to the following 15 blogs, I’ve enjoyed my previous visits to your blogs and look forward to visiting you many times again.

1.   Pete at A Brummie Family Tree

2.   MarDi at A Hoyt Family Genealogy

3.   Liz at Entwined Roots

4.   Sue at Family Folklore Blog

5.   Anita at Family Tree Rings

6.   Ros at GenWestUK

7.   Julie at Grave Encounters

8.   Cheryl at Heritage Happens

9.   Kim at Heritage Heart

10.   Kathryn at Kathryn’s Quest

11.   Rosemary at London Roots Research

13.   Denise at The Family Curator

    • Hallo Ros, I’m glad you are so pleased with the Award. I know how you feel as it wasn’t so long ago that I received my first Award and I believe I also made a comment at the time that it had brightened up my day so much!! I’m sure there are many others besides myself that likes your blog. It’s a good one. 🙂

      Kind regards,

    • Hallo Julie, I found your Grave Encounters very interesting. You have some wonderful photos there. As a Graveyard Rabbit I find other blogs like yours quite fascinating. I’m sure you will pass the Award on to some very good blogs. 🙂

  5. Many Thanks Christine!!!!!!

    Comment by Vicki — March 11, 2011 @ 12:09 am

    • You are most welcome Vicki. Your blog is just so wonderful and you are so lucky to have such a great diary. It gives a real insight into the times. My family lived in London during the blitz but none kept a diary or certainly nothing that has survived. 🙂

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)

    • Hallo MarDi, I’m so pleased you like the Award. Your blog is always so interesting and I love the graphics for the themes, I especially love the black sheep!! (Possibly as I have a thing about sheep since we had Buttercup and Daisy as pets from when they were little lambs, saving them from going to the slaughterhouse)!! I wonder if there are any Awards out there for Project 365 blogs? 😉

      Kind regards,

  8. Thanks Christine! I’m still new to blogging, so it was really a nice surprise to see your nomination. 🙂

    Comment by Kathryn — March 12, 2011 @ 1:02 am

    • Hallo Kathryn, you are very welcome. I’m sure as you get more into blogging your site will accrue more and more things, just like mine seems to have. 🙂 I’m looking forward to more visits to your blog!!

      Kind regards,

      Christine (rootsresearcher)
