We’re looking for nominations! This is the time to help recognize that unsung genealogical hero who has contributed to your research success.
This award shall be presented to an individual in recognition of outstanding volunteer service to the field of genealogy in and related to the State of Maine through, but not limited to:
volunteer work to genealogical organizations and/or local libraries; efforts making genealogical and historical information more accessible to researchers (transcription of vital and other genealogical records, or publication of genealogical research either in print or electronic media);
education (through lectures and participation in presenting workshops);
maintaining genealogical website(s); and promotion of genealogy.
More than any of these specific accomplishments, the most wonderful thing about Thelma is that she is always willing to share her knowledge and experience with everyone.
