Rockstar Genealogist Nominations Closing

Several people have sent in nominations for people to add to the list. Those accepted so far are in the updated original post here.

Others are under review or proponents have not yet made a convincing case from two nominators that they meet the criteria - repeated below.

Rockstar genealogists are those who give "must attend" presentations at family history conferences or as webinars, who when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. If you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter they are likely Rockstar candidates. For clarity, it's about communication and influence not who's the best researcher.

Nominations can still be submitted following the procedure here. They will close at 2 pm ET on Saturday.
