2014 FGS Distinguished Service Award: Judi Cook of Nebraska

During the last FGS Conference, a FGS Distinguished Service Award was presented for dedicated volunteer Judi Cook, of Nebraska. Judi is a member of the FGS Member Society, Lincoln-Lancaster County Genealogical Society. Judi did much to increase visibility of her society.

Among her accomplishments are library educational activities that promoted and highlighted the LLCGS library's extensive resources to members and the public.

She expanded society outreach that resulted in:
  • A new dedicated group of individuals (attendance 30-35) attending weekly genealogy classes at the public library.
  • Increased public connection as Judi and the society worked with the public Library to promote and highlight "One Book-One Lincoln."
  • More participation in the genealogy library resources from members and the public in and out of state.

Don’t forget to nominate other deserving individuals or organizations for consideration by the Awards Committee. Visit http://fgs.org/ and click on Awards for the details of each award category and the nomination form. Awards will be presented at various times during 2015.
