“Little Bytes of Life” Among MyHeritage.com’s Top 100 Genealogy Sites

I have been so crazy-busy (not to mention out-of-the-loop) since I returned home from the N.S.C.A.R. National Convention / visit with my Dad. You can imagine how surprised I was to learn that “Little Bytes of Life” was included among MyHeritage.com‘s list of “Top 100 Genealogy Sites.”

As always, it amazes me that anyone even reads my blog (especially since I’ve been short on content lately), much less has anything nice to say about it. Awards are downright shocking.

There were, in my humble opinion, some glaring omissions to this list, but as MyHeritage.com explained:

We put a focus on finding hidden gems in the community, so there’s a good chance that some of these are sites you won’t have seen before. It’s a testament to the vibrancy of the online genealogy community that even this selection of 100 sites had to leave out a lot of quality content. Nevertheless, these are the 100 we came up with, presented in alphabetical order. We hope you enjoy reading them!

Momma always taught me to just say “thank you” to a compliment, and not to ask questions. So… thank you, MyHeritage.com, for finding “Little Bytes of Life” to be one of your “hidden gems.” Hopefully it won’t remain hidden for too much longer!

Congratulations to the other 99 wonderful sites on this list. I hope that you will take the time to visit them and say “hello!”

And to the “glaring omissions” I say, “You guys are all ROCK STARS in my book.” You know who you are.
