Help Choose the 2011 Family Tree 40!
Posted by Diane

In the July 2011 Family Tree Magazine, we’ll name the 40 Best Genealogy Blogs—the Family Tree 40. And we’d like your help in choosing from blogs nominated by the genealogy community.

To vote, use the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/ft40-2011voting.

The nominees are divided into eight categories. In each category, please choose five blogs (you'll get an error message if you choose too many).

Voting is open until 11:59 p.m. Monday, Dec. 20. You may vote multiple times. (If you have a genealogy blog, feel free to use this badge to encourage your fellow family historians to vote.)

Thanks a bunch to our Family Tree 40 panelists—Genealogy Gems blogger Lisa Louise Cooke, Genea-Musings blogger Randy Seaver, Myrt of the DearMyrtle blog and Thomas MacEntee of Geneabloggers—who helped in formulating the blog categories and qualifications, as well as narrowing categories with the most nominations.

For more on the Family Tree 40 blog categories and qualifications, see this Genealogy Insider blog post.

Click here to vote in the Family Tree 40.

PS: You can go here to easily click through to visit all the blogs in the Family Tree 40 voting!

Just a suggestion. Is there any way to make the list of blogs "clickable" so that people can easily browse through them before voting? It would be much easier than having to type the addresses in. :)

Hi, Jennifer, I would love to but I've been unable to find a way to make the links clickable in Survey Monkey (if anyone knows a secret, please comment!).

To make visiting the blogs faster, instead of typing the URL, you can highlight the URL and copy it by hitting control + C on your keyboard (command + C on a Mac). Then put your cursor in your browser window (open a new window so you can keep the survey open) and use Control + V to paste the URL into your browser. Then hit enter to visit the blog.

Thanks for voting!

Sorry, I've never used Survey Monkey before, so I'm not sure how you would do that!
I made my own clickable list on my blog for anyone that would like to browse without typing or pasting. :)

Thank you so much, Jennifer! A few other bloggers have done this, as well. I added the info to the beginning of the survey form and will also add it to this blog post. I hope others find new blogs they love, too!
