Congratulations John L Sayers

Helping celebrate genealogy gripe week.

John Sayers is a gentleman, a dedicated genealogist known far and wide for his work on home children. His many other contributions to family history in Ottawa have included cemeteries coordinator for OGS Ottawa Branch, longtime volunteer with the local Family History Centre, and running the England discovery table at BIFHSGO monthly meetings. He was named to the BIFHSGO Hall of Fame in 2001.

Posted on the OGS Ottawa Branch web site is information that John is to be recognized with an Ontario Heritage Trust award to be presented at 9:30 am on Thursday April 2, 2009 at the Community and Protective Services Committee at City Hall.

So what's to gripe about?

I'll be away and miss the event. Two other people well known in the local heritage community will also receive awards. Who are they?
