EWGS Blog Listed as One of's 50 Best Blogs for Genealogy Geeks

The Eastern Washington Genealogical Society Blog has received its first recognition in the geneablogging (genealogy blog) world! has listed it among its 50 Best Blogs for Genealogy Geeks, specifically with 13 other blogs categorized under Specific Research Projects:
Even if you’re not from the Spokane, WA, area, you might have fun peeking at posts about genealogy societies, local culture, and the Pacific Northwest.
So what do online universities have to do with genealogy? I took a look at their website and blog and found this explanation:
Americans are proud of their melting-pot culture, but genealogy is also a popular past-time and even profession, as family ancestry is complex and often hard to define. It takes a lot of research to untangle the web of genealogy in order to create a clear family tree, but as an online university student, you’re probably used to taking on similarly large projects. Either as a break from studying, a supplement to your history classes, or even for inspiration to start your own family ancestry research, check out these 50 blogs on genealogy.
Thank you to Kaitlyn Cole and for recognizing the EWGS blog, and congratulations to the other winners!
