      Subject: [yizkor] Awards Committee Announcement

      Each year the IAJGS (International Association of Jewish
      Genealogical Societies) recognizes individuals and organizations with
      four prestigious awards for excellence in Jewish genealogy.

      As was done in the last two years, rather than submitting nominations via
      email or postal mail, nominations for all four award categories are to be
      submitted online via a One-Step form. If additional "hard-copy" material is
      required to be sent, complete instructions are contained on the online
      One-Step form, as well as printed below. Our intent is to make it easier
      for the submitters and for the committee members who have to review the
      submissions.

      The online form is at http://stevemorse.org/awards/nominate.php.

      For 2010, as in past years, the four award categories are:

      1. IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award

      2. Outstanding Contribution to Jewish Genealogy via the Internet, Print
      or Electronic Product

      3. Outstanding Programming or Project that Advanced the Objectives of
      Jewish Genealogy

      Hard-Copy Material Submissions: It would be helpful (although not
      required) for nominations to include five copies of actual presentations
      to live audiences, audio or video recordings, printed presentations,
      CDs, etc. One copy should be sent to each of the committee members.
      A list of the committee members' postal addresses will be sent upon request
      after receipt of the online submission. Submissions and supporting
      documentation will not be returned and remain the property of the IAJGS.

      4. Outstanding Publication by a Member Organization of IAJGS

      Hard-Copy Material Submissions: Submissions should include five issues
      or copies of the publication. One copy should be sent to each of the
      committee members. A list of the committee members' postal addresses
      will be sent after receipt of the online submission. Submissions and
      supporting documentation will not be returned and remain the property of
      the IAJGS.

      For details on each award and a listing of all previous winners, go to
      http://www.iajgs.org/awards_files/awards.html

      Please note that nominations can be made only by member organizations of the
      IAJGS and not by individuals. However, we encourage individuals to be part
      of the process by contacting their local organization and suggesting worthy
      recipients. For a list of the JGSs and SIGs that make up the IAJGS, see
      http://www.iajgs.org/members/members.html

      The recipients of the 2010 awards will be announced at the annual IAJGS
      conference banquet in Los Angeles on July 15, 2010. The deadline for award
      nominations is April 1, 2010.
