Inside History is a beautifully produced magazine blending history and genealogy in a seamless way. The covers are always special and the July-August edition (above) is no exception and rates among one of my favourites. So to be included in a list of blogs compiled by the Inside History team and Jill Ball, my unsuspecting blogging mentor, is an honour. And not just any list. The company I keep in the personal blogger category include some of the best Australian and International genealogy blogs. Never did I think Western District Families would be shortlisted with Dear Myrtle! You can find all the Top 50 blogs by following this link http://www.insidehistory.com.au/2013/07/50-genealogy-blogs-you-need-to-read/ Congratulations to all the bloggers in the Top 50.
Thank you to Jill and Inside History for including Western District Families. After a difficult year it has been a lovely surprise as I doubted I could repeat last year’s efforts of being included in the 2012 Top 50 Genealogy Blogs . Escapism from daily life by way of travelling back to the time of my pioneering Western District Families has proven worthy on many levels.
Thank you also to all the followers of Western District Families for your encouragement for me to keep sharing stories from the past.
