Jerry & Janice Gower Receive Award

It was a bit of a wait, but the Gowers finally received their official award at the November 7th meeting of the Greater Portland Chapter of the MGS. Due to illness, they were unable to attend the annual conference back in September where Joe Anderson, chair of the MGS Awards Committee, announced that they were the recipients of the Award of Excellence in Genealogical Research.
