This has made my day, my week, hot damn it's made my year!

This print version of Family Tree Magazine should be on the shelves any day now, but you can read the online version of the
most excellent article written by Maureen Taylor about all 40 of the winners. Maureen Taylor of course is the Photo Dectective.

Under the category of Personal & Family Blog, Maureen had this to say:

"The Educated Genealogist - You’ll feel like one of Sheri Fenley’s family when you read her tongue-in-cheek stories about her relatives and research. She manages to combine hilarious Halloween costumes and genealogy in the post."
