Elizabeth Simpson Award 2013

Congratulations to the Oxfordshire FHS, overall winner of the Elizabeth Simpson Award 2013 of the Federation of Family History Societies as the Journal making the best contribution to family history.
Oxfordshire would seem to be the place to have ancestors. BIFHSGO member Brenda Turner was recently researching at the Oxfordshire History Centre, which is in a converted church, and spoke highly of the new facility and records which include over 80% of the county's MIs.

That's great news! I have on occasion been working on my husband's side of the family tree and he and his family were from Oxfordshire.
Worth a trip down to see family!!
