Introducing the EWGS Blog

It's official! The Eastern Washington Genealogical Society has a blog! Yesterday morning, three team members and myself were given the nod by the board of the Eastern Washington Genealogical Society for the blog to become an official medium of the society. Donna, Bette, Charles and I have been doing light blogging since we set it up in July, waiting for the first board meeting of the 2007 - 2008 society year for our "go ahead."

During the regular meeting held that afternoon, I announced the blog and gave the URL: I had posted a message earlier that morning, explaining what a blog is and its purposes in our society. Many of our members are unfamiliar with blogs, and I will continue to write posts to help them understand and be able to use the blog. We are especially excited to use it as a means of communication regarding the upcoming Washington State Genealogical Society's 2009 Conference, to be held in Spokane's historic Davenport Hotel (where, not-so-coincidentally, the EWGS was formed in 1935).

Today, I listed the EWGS blog with Chris Dunham's Genealogy Blog Finder under Associations and Societies. If you have Eastern Washington roots, please visit often!

Congratulations on your new blog. In appearance the blog is clean and professional-looking, the information is well organized, and you have first class editors and writers! Sounds like a winning combination.

Terrific job as always with EWGS. The new blog is very informative and will be a great addition to all that EWGS already offers.

They have the perfect editor-in-chief. Congratulations!
