On January 19, 2012, my blog will be 1 year old! I remember when I made my first post…I was so nervous that no one would read my blog. I’m glad to find out that I didn’t need to worry about that. Well I would like to celebrate but instead of normally receiving gifts, I will be giving gifts to you, my readers as a thank you for your readership.
What do you have to do? Well, just post a comment to this post sometime between now and 6:00pm on Thursday, January 19th. You can let me know what you like about my blog and what you don’t like, advice, anything that has to do with my blog! I will use Random.org to pick the winning comments and post them at 8pm. After your name is listed as a winner, you have to email me your address with the subject line “Blog Anniversary Contest”. Once I receive your address, I will mail your prize to you.
Their are several prizes to be had. They are webinar-on-CD by Legacy Family Tree and Genealogy At A Glance on African American Genealogy Research by Michael Hait. I received them with my Geneabloggers swag bag when I attended the SCGS Jamboree in 2011. I have six CD’s prizes and one At A Glance available.
- Chasing Women: Finding Your Female Ancestors presented by Leland K. Meitzler (I have two of these)

Have a great weekend!!!
My Genealogy Obsession is a very interesting blog. Congrats on a year of blogging. Please keep up blogging.
Congratulations on reaching one year. I think it requires commitment to keep up a blog. I’m looking forward to another great year!
Happy Birthday!!! I just found your blog today and I look forward to exploring it in the future. I just read part of your “about me” and like you I have been doing genealogical research for several years off and on and became more serious a few years ago. I have a great deal of respect for bloggers because I realize the commitment and dedication that it requires. So my hat is off to you and all the other genealogy bloggers out there. When I decided to become more serious about my obsession I started the American Records program with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto. It is a three part program with beginners, intermediate and advanced courses. It is an online program so it is very convenient and flexible.
I look forward to exploring your blog more and learning from your experience.
I hope you have a great birthday!!!!
Congratulations on your one year birthday! I am interested in following your blog as it is showing how you are developing as a blogger. Progress is what we all aim toward. I want to blog but have not had the courage to start yet. As you know, it is quite a committment! So, I’ll keep following your efforts and working toward getting enough guts to start my own! Inspiration!

Congratulations! I’m still trying to get up the nerve and energy to blog! I loved your post about ordering the death certificate for your grandmother. That is such good advice: When ALL of your searches are coming up without results, then one of your criteria is likely wrong. Loved it. Thanks
Congratulations on the anniversary of your wonderful blog! I am looking forward to starting a
family history blog of my own. Reading through yours has been inspiring. Keep up the good work, and blog-on to your OBSESSION’S content!
