Vote now for your favourite rock star genealogists

VOTE: Our survey to determine rock star genealogists, women and men who give "must attend" presentations at genealogy conferences and/or write "must read" family history articles or publications is now open.
There's more than one rock star so vote for as many as you want. it's your opportunity to express your appreciation for the genealogists who wow you with their presentations and/or writing. Consider both style and content.

Thanks to everyone who made nominations.

There are 74 genealogists and family historians nominated, marginally more men than women, and two others believed to be male.
The survey asks basic questions on country of residence, gender and age range which you may respond to with "prefer not to answer."
Please feel free to use Twitter, Google+, Facebook, blogs, emails, telephone, posters tacked to telephone poles, smoke signals, carrier pigeons and other publicity to encouraging voting which is planned to close late on Saturday 28 January.
Ready to take the survey?  Start here.

A shame I missed the deadline for nominations. I should have nominated Jackie Depelle, who is a great speaker. She also does an excellent job of organising genealogy seminars, fairs etc in the UK.

Wow. The genealogy blogging community is becoming more and more like high school. When are we nominating the NGS conference king and queen?
