The following announcement was written by the (U.S.) National Genealogical Society:
At the 2018 NGS Conference in the States held in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the National Genealogy Hall of Fame welcomed its thirty-third member, Mary Smith Fay, an author of two books and over three dozen articles. Her research interests spanned the entire Eastern United States to Texas. She was nominated by the American Society of Genealogists with supporting recognition from the Houston Genealogical Forum and the White County Historical Society [Illinois].
Would your society like to honor a genealogist whose unique, pioneering, or exemplary work lives on today? Perhaps there was a notable genealogist in your state or county whose name should be memorialized in the National Genealogy Hall of Fame.
If so, the National Genealogical Society would like to hear from you.
