The Dutchess County (New York) Historical Society has bestowed its highest research award on Arthur and Nancy Kelly of Rhinebeck for their "meticulous search for historical truth." The Helen Wilkinson Reynolds award has been granted to only six previous recipients. In addition to the award, the Kellys each received a Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition for "outstanding and invaluable service to the community."
The Kellys live in Rhinebeck at the Sepascot Farm, which has been in their family for 100 years. The couple founded and currently operate KINSHIP, a book publishing business that has grown out of their genealogical research that serves families throughout the U.S. and Canada.
