The Smoky Mountain iGene Awards

In honor of the Academy awards, we are supposed to award some of our posts iGene awards for the 42nd Carnival of Genealogy. I chose to limit mine to calendar year 2007 even though posts through February 15 were eligible according to the rules.

So without further ado, the winners are:

Best Picture: Seeing Double

Best Screen Play: Salem Witchcraft Trials (Starring: Craig Manson as the judge; Janice Brown as Mary Perkins Bradbury; Randy Seaver as Capt. Thomas Bradbury; Terry Thornton and Thomas MacEntee as the prison guards who were bribed; and the rest of the geneabloggers as the accusers and witnesses for and against Mary, and the jury) [Sorry, folks, my creativity appears to be limited to limericks! You can pick your part. For assistance with the accusers, witnesses, etc., you can see Mary Bradbury's Trial to see who the players were. You can select your part by responding to this post!]

Best Documentary: Great Colonial Hurricane of 1635

Best Biography: Laura Lucy Taylor

Best Comedy: Fruitcake

Great posts, Lori - I really enoyed reading them. What a beautiful picture of Laura Lucy Taylor BTW, she has incredible eyes!

Thomas MacEntee said...

I think that the "fruitcake" theme will dominate the Best Comedy category!

Janice said...

I'm glad Mary Perkins Bradbury survived the witchcraft trials! :D


Lori Thornton said...

Yes, and she seemed to have been really well-liked by her community from most of the testimony I've read.
