Update on Rockstar Genealogist Vote

As of 9 pm on Sunday almost 900 separate responses had been made to the Rockstar genealogist poll.
So far 40% of respondents are identifying themselves as genetic genealogists, up from 32% the previous two years.
Fewer votes are coming from those who live in the USA than in previous years. Maybe some have been at the FGS conference in Springfield and not had time to vote.  If you attended any really good presentations there, or at any other events this year, voting for them in the poll is a good way to express your appreciation.
Voting will close at 6 pm EDT on Sunday 11 September. In previous years voting has been open for a week. This year that falls in the middle of the BIFHSGO conference (walk-ins welcome). Commitments there mean I've no opportunity for analysis until it's over.  Look for the first results on Monday 12 September.

Thanks to those who have promoted the vote through social media.
