I'm rather chuffed to find myself placed in runner-up position in the 'Ireland – Rockstar Genealogists' Poll run by John Reid on his excellent Anglo-Celtic-Connections.com blog.
I wasn't expecting to figure because I don't give lectures or write books as most of the nominated characters do, but I won't deny that it's a lovely boost to see my name among such well-known and well-regarded genealogists. You'll see what I mean when you take a look at John's blogpost, announcing all the silver and bronze medallists in the various international categories. He'll be announcing the Gold medallists tomorrow.
Many, many thanks to everyone who voted for me. What a great way to start the week!
