Australia/New Zealand Top Ten Genealogists 2015

Join me in congratulating the top ten genealogists as voted in the Rockstar Genealogist poll by those from Australia and New Zealand.

1. Jill Ball
2. Chris Goopy
3. Shauna Hicks
4. Thomas MacEntee
5. Chris Paton
6. Pauleen Cass
7. Sharn White
    8. Judy G. Russell
    8. Helen V Smith
    8. Judy Webster

Here are some statistics:

122 voters were recorded for this category.
79% of voters self-identified as female, 8 of ten on the list are female.
60% of voters identified themselves as genetic genealogists.
Seven of ten on the list are from the area.

The competition in this category was extremely keen with leadership changing almost as often as Australia changes Prime Ministers!

Tomorrow the blog will reveal the England/Scotland/Wales top ten and the Ireland top five genealogists.

Thanks John, it's great to be in such good company :) I'm also pleased not to be in the Prime Ministerial league ;)

Thank you John, and thanks to all who voted... What great company I'm included in... though still very much surprised.
As for the Prime Minister, it's Sunday here and I haven't listened to the news as yet... Could you please tell me who it is for today?
