Last chance to vote for Genealogy Rock Stars
Voting for the Anglo-Celtic Connections Blog survey to determine genealogists of “rock star” status ends on Saturday 28 July
Many will be familiar with SoG member John Reid’s excellent blog Anglo Celtic Collections. John is a stalwart of the Canadian genealogy community and certainly keeps attuned to news and events in the British and Irish Genealogy scene.
John has devised a survey to determine rock star genealogists, women and men who give “must attend” presentations at genealogy conferences and/or write “must read” family history articles or publications.
Voting is now open. There’s more than one rock star so vote for as many as you want. it’s your opportunity to express your appreciation for the genealogists who wow you with their presentations and/or writing. Consider both style and content.
I note from John’s updates that the British community is a little under represented amongst the the voters so we should make up for that. There are some excellent genealogy communicators from the English speaking world on this list (including several SoG members) and it’s a very interesting list of people to follow. Thanks to everyone who made nominations and congratulations to all who have been nominated.
As well as asking for your votes the survey asks basic questions on country of residence, gender and age range which you may respond to with “prefer not to answer.”
As John says – Please feel free to use Twitter, Google+, Facebook, blogs, emails, telephone, posters tacked to telephone poles, smoke signals, carrier pigeons and other publicity to encouraging voting which is planned to close late on Saturday 28 January.
