Help Choose the Genealogy Difference Maker of the Year!
Posted by Diane

From the unofficial town historian who helps out at the library three days a week to the legions of people doing FamilySearch Indexing, your average genealogist wouldn’t get very far without relying on the work of volunteers.

If you’ve used USGenWeb, RootsWeb, a local genealogical society, the databases on FamilySearch records search pilot, the Ellis Island passenger database, Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, cemetery inscriptions on Find-A-Grave, or innumerable other resources and organizations, you’ve been helped by a stranger who just wanted other people to be able to find their ancestors.

We started our Difference Maker series to highlight the efforts of all these unknown people. Family Tree Magazine readers nominated volunteers throughout the year. We selected a nominee to profile in each 2009 issue—they are
  • Ellen Thompson, for collecting history of local schools
  • Robin Dickson, for volunteering and indexing records at her library
  • John Jackson, for creating a virtual cemetery for Civil War soldiers
  • Gail Reynolds, for being a library volunteer and genealogy teacher
  • Susan Steele, for preserving historical records
  • Bennie W. White, for compiling records and posting resources free online
Now it’s up to you to help choose a Difference Maker of the Year. That person will win a year of Family Tree Magazine and $100 toward his or her genealogy cause.

Click here to learn more about the work of these six volunteers, then hit the voting link on that page to cast your vote.

Voting closes Sept. 16 at midnight EDT. One vote is permitted per computer.

Congratulations to these six people, and thanks to all the genealogy volunteers out there who make it easier for us to research our roots.

Hi everyone. 'Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.'

Mix of structural nitrogen and sheathing popular transfer houses, resetting different superior, sealing zirconia styles and several work and performance pathways. hilti spray foam insulation.
