Family History & Genealogy Research

Seattle and Portland are Great Places for Genealogy Research

with one comment

Recent numbers from Google’s Trends spotting service show that Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon consistently show up in the top 10 places to do genealogy, family history, and ancestry research.

These numbers are encouraging as the rest of the states and cities indicated by the trends service are in the south and southwest.

Among the top cities for genealogy, excluding that center for name collecting in Utah, are

  • Denver, Colorado,
  • San Diego, California
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Houston and Dallas, Texas
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Minneapolis, Minnesota

For family history and ancestry research, San Antonio and Austin, Texas join the top 10 mix.

What makes Texans so hot on genealogy these days? Comments welcome and warmly solicited.
