I have just heard that Marjorie Moore, FSG, a well-known name in Family History circles in the UK, has been killed in an accident while on holiday in South Africa. She was in a safari vehicle that overturned.
She was a past Chairman of the Society of Genealogist and was instrumental in organising its London Family History Fair from its beginning. She and her husband Richard could be seen most weekends at Family History Fairs around the country where they gave free advice.
She wore many hats and will be sadly missed by the organisations she represented and well as by Richard and their families.

Comment by Dick Eastman: I only met Marjorie Moore a few times. I remember sitting beside her and her husband Richard at dinner in a restaurant in London a year or two ago. I was very impressed by her love of genealogy and her obvious enjoyment of life. She set an example that will long be remembered.
