Upstate New York Genealogy Blog Wins Award of "Best of the Internet" is one of the most loved and respected genealogy websites around.

Upstate New York Genealogy Blog has the great honor of receiving one of Dear Myrtle's coveted "Best of the Internet Awards."

This award was in response to a Blog that we put out and that created quite a buzz, about the genetics testing company 23andme. Myrt's award for "Best of the Internet" reads in part:

"MOST INTERESTING THREAD: Always up on the news Dick Hillenbrand's "Wife of Google co-founder wants to test DNA of 98 per cent of the World!", 2008. While this was reported elsewhere, I appreciate the comment from a lineage society member who worries about disqualifying members based on DNA."

Dear Dick,

I have finally gotten the blog, though I am not sure how I did it. Thanks for your trouble and congrats on being honored by "Dear Myrtle".

Ethel, you are very kind and the thanks are very much appreciated. Through email we conquered the subscription confusion, and find that the new "Subscribe by email" is probably the least difficult.

Your comments help this Blog a lot, so keep em' commin'!

It will be easier on both of us if you post comments and questions here with the Blog "comments" button. Then others can chime in if they so please.
