  1. Wow, thanks for the mention, Jana!

  2. Thanks for mentioning two of my blog posts this week, Jana! I don't know if the one about Christa McAulliffe counts because it posted in 2010.

    1. You're very welcome Heather! Oh, I didn't notice that the Christa McAulliffe post was from 2010. But, that's okay. I wasn't blogging back then, so I hadn't read it yet. =)

  3. Thank you so much, Jana! Very appreciated. Have a great weekend. ~ Jen

  4. Thanks Jana! Fridays (or Saturdays with my morning coffee!) are my favorite blog reading times, because I am always excited for what great finds you have found for the week!
    So often it is a blog that I don't follow already, so I've "found" a number of great blogs this way! AND it is always an extra thrill to have one your blogs be one of Jana's Fab Finds! While I didn't get one this week, it's exciting to see who did! Though I did think my 'Cemetery in Crisis' might have stood a chance! LOL. ;)
    Thanks for all your great work sharing the best of our genealogy world!

    1. Hi Nicholas,

      Aren't you kind! Thank you for your comments! How did I miss your wonderful blog post? I've read it now and left a comment. I've also shared it on Twitter and Google+. Thanks so much for stopping by!

    2. Oh Jana, That's sweet of you! But I was only jesting when I spoke of being overlooked! Every Saturday morning, I enjoy your blog with my morning coffee!
      So thank YOU!

  5. Thank you for the mention Jana!
