FGS Distinguished Service Award: Kay Crockette Stone

FGS Distinguished Service Award: Kay Crockette Stone
Another of the deserving genealogists that FGS honored in 2014 is Kay Crockette Stone from Florida. Kay is a member of the FGS member society, Imperial Polk [FL] Genealogical Society. She has been a member for almost 30 years and is the appointed cemetery committee chair.

For more than 20 years she worked with the cemetery committee to survey, transcribe, and publish nine volumes about the county cemeteries. Nine!

She has been one of the most diligent and relentless persons about details and accuracy as she entered all the tombstone transcriptions, checked, and rechecked for accuracy.

Do you know someone that serves your society as a volunteer extraordinaire? Why not honor them with an international award for their work. Please visit the FGS website to nominate these members or others. Visit and click on Awards for the details of each award category and the nomination form. Awards will be presented at various times during 2015 but if you are interested in a nomination for an award to be presented at the next FGS conference, the submissions must be received soon.

As you may know, the next conference will be held 11-14 February 2015 in Salt Lake City in conjunction with RootsTech. Details are on the FGS website and everyone is welcome! Register now.
