Thanks John for once again running and managing this survey. We're doing our part to get the word out: http://www.geneabloggers.com/favorite-genealogy-rockstar-2014-voting-open/

When is voting over? When will results be announced? Can people vote more than once?

JDR said...

In response to Randy Sever's questions, the voting will end late Friday or Saturday. Expect the results to start coming out late Sunday or Monday. The survey places a cookie on the computer used that prohibits voting more than once from that machine.

The voting link would not work when I tried to vote. When I backed out to try again, it wouldn't let me and a message that I had already voted. Don't know if anyone else has had that prolem or not.

As a conference organiser, I was hoping to get some ideas on which presenters to invite - but recommendations need to be based on personal experience. I was therefore not happy with your suggestion that your readers should tell their friends who to vote for! It makes the whole thing meaningless.

How does one nominate a family Rockstar Genealogist that isn't on the list?

JDR said...

Martin: Nominations were opened a week before voting started and widely publicized on social media. Many people have added other names as a comment at the end of their vote.

Thanks. Will stay in touch for next year's nominations.

Our Sr family genealogist is Gary Benton Prather
