2014 Presidential Ctiation: Billion Graves & My Heritage

In just a little over a week, the Federation of Genealogical Societies will be presenting Awards during the Wednesday, February 11th, Focus on Societies Day morning session. It begins at 8:00 a.m. and is session W-100. It’s the perfect time to applaud deserving members of our genealogical community. The bulk of these awards are chosen from nominations sent by YOU!

The President of the Federation of Genealogical Societies has the honor of choosing individuals, businesses, and organizations for special awards. In 2014, President D. Joshua Taylor chose a special effort for a Presidential Citation. The awards presentation carried these words:

Billion Graves and My Heritage

For their work on promoting the preservation of International burial locations.
Their continuing efforts are a message of terrific collaboration within the commercial family history industry.

Visit their websites for more information on their work. At the conference, don't forget to visit their booths in the Expo Hall at the conference:

Billion Graves: or booth #326
My Heritage: or booth #504

Do you know someone or some organization that serves our field as a volunteer or business person 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. 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 or at the door.
