Mississippi Memories Named to "Top 40 Genealogy Blogs" List by Family Tree Magazine

Earlier this week, I learned that Mississippi Memories was named by Family Tree Magazine to the list of "Top 40 Genealogy Blogs."  This blog appears under a category entitled "Good Advice."
What an amazing surprise! Thank you, Family Tree Magazine, for this special honor. The list of blogs, along with a brief write-up about each, appears in the March/April issue of the magazine.   I feel so honored and truly blessed to have been included on a list of such talented writers, many of whom have maintained blogs for much longer than I have. 

An excerpt from the magazine article, summarizing why this blog was included on the list, appears here: 

" ........Mississippi Memories takes a relatively narrow slice of genealogical geography and uses it to explore universal research techniques. Posts in recent months have tackled “Genealogy and Adoption,” “Crossing the Color Line” and “If Only The Walls Could Talk ...” (house history), as well as blogger Janice Tracy’s own family stories and finds."

The posts cited in the write-up above are three of my personal favorites, ones that I especially enjoyed writing and sharing with my readers.  In case you missed these articles, I am providing links to them from this post.

If Only The Walls Could Talk....

Thank you, Family Tree Magazine, and thank you to all who continue to read my blog!


  1. From one Mississippi researcher to another, congratulations.

  2. Congratulations on a well deserved award.
