The U.S. National Genealogical Society is asking for nominations to the National Genealogy Hall of Fame. The following was written by the NGS:
The National Genealogy Hall of Fame is an educational project sponsored by the National Genealogical Society. The entire genealogical community is invited to participate in this project. Nominations should come from organizations, not individuals and are due by February 15, 2008.
By focusing on the history of genealogy in the United States and on those elected to the Hall of Fame, there will be an increased awareness of, and appreciation for, the high standards those persons advocated and achieved. One person is elected to the Hall of Fame annually. Those elected are permanently commemorated in the Hall of Fame located in the headquarters of the National Genealogical Society in Arlington, Virginia.
