For the second consecutive year, Family Tree Magazine has honored our main KHS website by naming it one of the 101 best sites for genealogy! This annual list has been a staple in the genealogy community for the past 13 years and recognizes websites based on various criteria. In 2011 our site was recognized on a statewide level, but 2012 has moved us into a regional recognition. Here is a link to the official announcement naming the entire 101 best sites: http://familytreemagazine.com/article/101-Best-Websites-2012 KHS is listed under the Midwestern region. For those of you who would like to have a print version of this list, just stop by your local bookstore to pick up the September issue. But hurry! This issue is only slated to be on newsstands until October 8th!
