Genealogy Columns in Newspapers

We are fortunate in our area that the Tampa Tribune runs a weekly column by Sharon Tate Moody on GENEALOGY related topics.

Having a genealogy column, is surprisingly not common in most large newspapers. I found a link to "10 Tips on Maiden Names" that lead to the Tribune-Star newspaper in Terre Haute, Indiana. The newspaper has a weekly genealogy column. And I was able to search the newspaper's website with the term "genealogy" and found lots of other interesting things.

Are you aware of another newspaper that carries a regular genealogy column? Please share that info in the comments of this posting. You can remain anonymous.
