*News* Hunting Kiwis in Top 50 Genealogy Blog List

Exciting news!

Hunting Kiwis was listed in Inside History magazine‘s Top 50 Genealogy Blogs in their latest issue (Issue 10). I’m really proud to have made this list after just 18 months of blogging on the topic.

The Top 50 list was compiled by renowned Australian genealogy blogger Jill Ball. You can check out the Top 50 list online, and perhaps find a few more blogs that will help you in your research.

As well as the comprehensive list of blogs, Inside History Issue 10 (May-June) has several features about cemeteries including the evolution of cemetery design and a fascinating look at Kiwi and Australian graves in the gold-rush region of Canada’s Yukon territory.

In the last year and a half, Hunting Kiwis has reached the four corners of the globe, with over 41,000 views to date.

Thank you all for your continued support and interest, and particularly for your contributions that bring the headstones and inscriptions to life.

Happy Hunting!
Helen @ Hunting Kiwis
