Blog posts here these days are a bit like buses, you wait ages for one then two come along at once! Those who follow me either on Facebook or Twitter may well have seen my comment or post from yesterday. Thanks to those who commented, liked or shared.
Along with the stationery box yesterday, the postman delivered my certificate from the Society of Genealogists.
In the late summer of 2019 I was informed that I had been awarded the Certificate of Recognition for exceptional services to genealogy and one-name studies, promoting methodology, aims, processes and strategies.
Although a member of the SOG, I had barely noticed the announcement inviting nominations, so much so that when the communications came, I had to read it twice!
I was delighted to have been nominated and then subsequently awarded the certificate.
My sadness is that it is another milestone without my late Mum, but I know that she would have been proud.
Congratulations Julie a very well deserved award
I always enjoy reading your blogs and this one was extra special. As I am not on Facebook or Twitter I thought a personal note was appropriate.
Congratulations on your Certificate of Recognition. Well done and justly deserved for all your hard work, support, enthusiasm you have given to the cause of family history, and the encouragement you have given to the students on your Pharos courses. We have learned a lot from you which hopefully will be very useful to us in the future as we continue our studies.

Your mum would indeed have been very proud Julie but I suspect she always knew what a smart and selfless daughter she had raised.
