And the Winner is…

It’s time for the iGene Awards!  AGFH proudly proclaims:

“iGene Awards, The Best of The Best! It’s Academy awards time… time for the Academy of Genealogy and Family History, aka AGFH, to honor their best blog posts of 2008”

According to the rules I get to nominated five of my own articles and since I’m my own award committee, I pick the winners!  So, without further ado, these are the winners of my very own iGene Awards for 2008:

Best Picture – The award for the best old family photo that appeared on my blog in 2008 goes to…

We have a tie!  Both photos in my post “Look!  It’s Chitty Chitty Bang Bang!”  These unusual photographs of relatives posing in automobiles in a studio are quite simply the best for 2008!

Best Screen Play – The award for the family story that would make the best movie goes to…

The Sinking of the Liscome Bay This is the true story of Charles Lassalle who lost his life when the Liscome Bay was sunk in World War II.  Actors for this film have not yet been determined.  It’s been rumored the Shia LeBeouf has been courted to play Charles Lassalle, while secret negotiations have been taking place to get John Wayne to come back from beyond the grave in one last role as Charles’ commanding officer.

Best Biography – The award for the best biographical article for 2008 goes to…

My Little Ol’ Grandma As a child, I thought I knew everything about my quiet, stoic Grandmother.  Boy, was I wrong!

Best Documentary – The award for the best informational article about a place, thing, or event involving my family’s history in 2008 goes to…

Take Another Look at the Census:  Your Female Ancestors You may think that you’ll never learn anything about your female ancestors.  I used the census to fill in the gaps about my Great Grandmother, Maria (de Braga) Pacheco.

Best Comedy – The winner of the best funniest story for 2008 goes to…

When Turkeys Sleep Mix a city girl with sleeping turkeys and you get pure hilarity!

I’d like to thank the Academy…oh, wait, that’s me!

Hope you enjoy these award winning articles!
