Recognition for the Canadian Genealogy Centre

Congratulations to the Canadian Genealogy Centre on being recognized as one of the 101 best family history websites for 2009.

According to a note published in the what's new section of the LAC website "The Canadian Genealogy Centre was chosen as a winner because it keeps expanding its online offerings, with the 1891 census joining the 1881 and 1911 enumerations, along with 1871 Ontario and 1906 Northwest Territories censuses. You'll also find land, military, immigration and vital records, directories and a database to track your Mountie ancestors."

That recognition comes from Family Tree Magazine, the American publication, not the UK one of the same name.

Now wouldn't it be nice if LAC could blow its own trumpet, celebrate the organization's good work, instead of hiding it away under a link. There is an opportunity. The LAC front page is looking kinda tired and could do with some fresh content. For example, and speaking of blowing its own trumpet, couldn't the Portrait Gallery folks find a different photo to celebrate the Festival Karsh? Didn't he take a few more!
