In my haste to write a conference blog post, I missed one of the big highlights of the week.
At the IAJGS Conference in Orlando, I received the Pamela Weisberger Memorial Fund Innovation Award from Gesher Galicia for CSI: Crowd Sourced Indexing.
“The Innovation Award given in her memory is to recognize outstanding individual contributions that shape the future of genealogy research.”
I am honored to be the first recipient of this award, which is a $2,500 prize in addition to the lovely trophy in the photo.
Pam Weisberger was a friend of mine since 2006 and she is greatly missed.
