Thanks, but a typo in your message. It is the National Genealogical Society
and the award is in the category for County or Local Genealogical or
Historical Society Newsletter.
Ottawa won in the Major Genealogical or Historical Society Newsletter and
there is a third category for Family Association Newsletter. So Canadians
won two of the three awards. Not bad.
Anyway it was a privilege to represent AFHS at the National Genealogical
Society Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. Rosemary and I learned a
great deal, met very interesting people and had fun.
Of course, the award was the achievement of many from writers to
proofreaders and everyone else who supported the effort. After all,
"teamwork is at the heart of great achievement" (John Maxwell).

Subject: Congratulations to Periodicals Committee
I would like to congratulate the Periodicals Committee for their
outstanding work on all tasks but also especially for the award they
have recently received - Winning the Genealogical / Historical
Society Journal award from the National Geographic Society.
Great job and I'm pleased that both of you Xenia & Rosemary could
attend the conference and receive the award and honours in person.
