2009’s Top 25 Gen Blogs: Tracing the Tribe is #10

The 25 most popular genealogy blogs of 2009 were named by ProGenealogists.com

I’m delighted to report that Tracing the Tribe – The Jewish Genealogy Blog is listed as number 10, among some very distinguished company.

The blogs were evaluated based on overall content, Technorati rating and industry experience.

Here’s Heather’s introduction, followed by the complete list:

Genealogy blogging is all the rage and on the rise. A Google search for genealogy blogs currently results in nearly half a million options, with over seven times that number for “family history” blogs. Nielsen Buzz Metrics BlogPulse shows a steady trend for genealogy and family history blogs with spikes correlating to celebrity family history activity in the news. Of the millions, 25 surface as the most popular all-around genealogy blogs, with a tie for 25th place according to rankings from Technorati.
