  1. Phil & Lisa Bartlow from the StillyValley Gen.Society are the driving forces behind the NORTHWEST GENEALOGY CONFERENCE held this year on August 15-18 in Arlington (www.NwGC.org to register). Without their determination and Anne Grimm (also awarded Outstanding Volunteer as Treasurer) we would not be able to bring this great event to you. Don’t miss CeCe Moore speaking at the banquet on Friday (ps…stay tuned for other exciting workshop announcements)!

  2. […] During the annual meeting and awards lunch, 30 local society members  and 4 teams were recognized with Outstanding Volunteer and Team awards. The volunteers were praised for their commitment and energies to promote genealogy and family history in their local communities. For more about the Outstanding Volunteers, read this blog article.
