Last Saturday, at the Society Annual General Meeting, I was honoured to be named to the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa Hall of Fame for "outstanding service to the Society."
Awards of excellence were given to:
Carol Annett for the best article during the year in Anglo-Celtic Roots "Remembering Brockville's Scottish Orphans," published in the Fall 2008 issue;
Alison Hare for best presentation by a member at a monthly meeting during the year for "The Time of Cholera" presented on 14 February 2009.
Certificates of recognition for services to the Society were presented to Valerie Monkhouse, and announced for Stan and Kathleen Magwood.
Congratulations to each of the others recognized.
