Rockstar Genealogist

Rockstar Genealogist – An Annual Award organised by Canadian genealogist John D Reid is now in its third year is a fun activity that gives one an opportunity to learn about genealogists in other countries.

John’s defininition: “Rockstar genealogists are those who give “must attend” presentations at family history conferences or as webinars. Who, when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. Who you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter?”

I was honoured to find myself receiving a Gold Medal in 2013. The list of Silver and Gold Medallists 2013 can be seen here:  and a search of John’s blog will turn up the top ten lists by country.

You can find those who have been nominated for 2014 here:
