Betty Burrows RIP

Just received, notice that highly respected former BIFHSGO Director of Communications Betty Burrows passed away last Wednesday. Betty was an enthusiastic contributing member; BIFHSGO is better for her involvement and contributions over many years, recognized by a certificate of excellence awarded earlier this year.

"Bettyserved our Society as Communications Director from 2006 to 2010 during whichtime she co-ordinated the production and distribution of Anglo-Celtic Roots, she wasresponsible for our award-winning website and our newsletter; she has beenactive in the planning of our fall conferences, participating in the productionof our conference program."
Additional appreciation

I knew Betty as an excellent BIFHSGO Director of Communications who never stinted in her quiet, efficient contributions to the Society. A wise, kind, and supportive friend to the ACR team, she will be sorely missed.

I knew Betty for only a short time. However, I was impressed with her enthusiasm and with the energy she put into tasks such as organizing the mailing and distribution of the Anglo-Celtic Roots magazine. I admired her article in the ACR in which she used DNA testing to trace her husband Vern's ancestry. She was proud to show me her family photos and to share Vern's interests and successes with me as well.
