What a gift to us all to share both this list and the blog overall.  Thank you very much. I know several people to whom I will pass this on so they can see info on their ancestors -- how exciting!

I'm a book reviewer, and Mr. Ewell sent me an advance copy of one of his books with a request for me to please review it.  I got about 20 pages in before I realized why all of the text sounded so familiar -- it matched, word for word, the handouts and my notes I'd taken during an FGS session...which Mr. Ewell had also attended.  (Not presented, mind you.  Attended.)  I have never seen such a thing in any other book.  I ended up not writing a review at all, though I did contemplate writing his publisher.  It was so painfully uncomfortable for me.

I am nobody in genealogy.  I have no interest in sitting at the cool lunch table or gaining a spot there by picking on others.  But every time I see this guy's name, I admit that I get irritated.  It's just so wrong.  I don't get why he gets a free pass.

I'm comfortable attaching my real name to this because, again, I am nobody, and also because what I'm saying is true.
