The "Top" Genealogy Websites and Blogs

Congratulations go out to the bloggers who have made the ProGenealogists list of the 25 Most Popular Genealogy Blogs! The selections were "evaluated based on their overall content, Technorati rating, and industry experience." The list is "as of 3 April 2009" and they note at the bottom of the post that "Due to the ever-changing nature of the blogosphere and the authority basis of Technorati rankings, it is anticipated that this list will change frequently."

There was only one blog on the list that I wasn't familiar with so I checked it out. The last post was made in January and there were less than 50 posts in all of 2008. There were some good search tips posted and the articles are well written so maybe its inclusion proves the old adage that quality is better than quantity.

ProGenealogists also has a list of the 50 Most Popular Genealogy Websites for 2009. That list includes some sites I've never heard of and some that I've heard of but never used. Guess I need to check them out sometime!

I first read about the lists over at Leland Meitzler's GenealogyBlog, which is rated #23. Leland's post includes a press release with more information about the two lists.
