Dick Eastman's Online Newsletter today contains the following:
I just received a sad note from Jeanne Bunting that says, in part:
I have just heard that Marjorie Moore FSG, a well-known name in Family
History circles in the UK has been killed in an accident while on holiday in
South Africa. She was in a safari vehicle that overturned.
She was a past Chairman of the Society of Genealogists and was instrumental
in organising its London Family History Fair from its beginning. She and her
husband Richard could be seen most weekends at Family History Fairs around
the country where they gave free advice.
She wore many hats and will be sadly missed by the organisations she
represented as well as by Richard and their families.

English researchers will remember that several years ago Marjorie and
Richard Moore were the speakers at an AFHS seminar organized by the late Dr.
Bob Westbury and his committee.
