It is presented to sites that I feel go "above and beyond" the personal genealogy site
in imaginative design and information for single surname web pages.
Also, they can't have computer generated music and can't crash my browser!
You must show the sources of your information.
You do not need to sign my guest book to qualify, this is not a contest to watch my guest book grow.
Your page can be of your own family or a page helping others in their research.
Your page must be pleasing to the eye and easy to navigate. However this award is not for how good your html capabilities are. I don't check HTML coding, only the end result. I am more interested in the research and verification that went into your genealogical work.
I don't present my awards to everyone who applies and if you haven't done independant research (census, birth, death records, etc) to back up the information on your page, or if your page is confusing to me, and not laid out in a logical manner, no award will be presented. I don't give out the awards just to create another link to my page. I also don't give out awards for sites that only contain a GED-COM. I take into consideration the creativity of the site design. I don't give awards to sites that charge other researchers for information.
