Thank You, Family Tree Magazine

Kreis Trier-Saarburg

When I began this blog almost seven years ago, it was a new adventure; a way to share information on life in German villages in the 1800s, especially in the Kreis Saarburg villages of my ancestors.  I hoped what I had learned would help other genealogists who had a special interest in family history.  I tried to show how much the social history of our German ancestors could enhance our family trees and help bring each ancestor to life.

I am very honored that this year my blog, 'Village Life in Kreis Saarburg, Germany' has been chosen as one of the Top 40 International Genealogy Blogs in an article entitled, "Around the World in 40 Blogs" published in the Family Tree Magazine of July/August 2012.  Thank you for the honor, Family Tree Magazine.

I have added a link to "Around the World in 40 Blogs" on my blog page.  There are so many excellent blogs to choose from, and I hope you will enjoy this look at family history worldwide.
