Ozarks' History Around the World

What do these have in common with Ozark’s History?
These are the readers & the tools they used to visit Ozarks' History Blog.

Last year there were also some favorite blogs.

I judged these by the amount of emails & comments on Facebook...not always by the number of hits by readers.

Here are the top 5 rankings by the volume of emails or & con.
  • On Thanksgiving weekend, 2010, we had 1974 hits and a lot of emails concerning this blog. I received more emails about this blog. Apparently, there are some who do & do not enjoy God or Religion mixed into History. The spectrum was on both sides and never in the middle. Guess which side I'm on.

2nd: My Dad

  • This one was a tearjerker for me.

3rd: Our Nation Is to Be Destroyed…Tomorrow

  •  This blog was about a Baxter County, Arkansas, preacher that gained international notoriety in 1907-1908. He declared "The End of The World." Many people responded in asking if this 3 Part story was true. 

    Answer: Yes, it was true.

4th: Small Beginnings in a Mammoth Surrounding: An Ozark County Family Journey

  • This is about my Anderson family genealogy from Jackson County, Tennessee, to Ozark County, Missouri. My Dad & I retraced the journey back in June 2008. This story is over a year old. I have found more lost relatives from this blog than I could have ever imagined.

5th: Amazon Women Spotted in Ozark County

  •  This one was a mixture of media sensationalism and genealogy. This blog is over a year old. Still, many people respond in asking if this 3 Part story was true. 

    Answer: Yes, it was true.

I would like to thank all who read & enjoy our Ozarks' History.

Hi, Vincent!
Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
