Judy G. Russell, JD, CG℠ , CGL℠ was awarded the Director’s Award for her efforts for Preserve the Pensions. Judy is a cheerleader for worthy causes within genealogy and the California Genealogical Society should be proud that we’re hosting her for our fall 2017 seminar.
Due to a generous anonymous donation matched by Ancestry.com, the Preserve the Pensions campaign has reached its goal. If you’re unfamiliar, the Preserve the Pensions campaign aims to digitize the pension records from veterans of the War of 1812. Many of our members donated independently to this worthy genealogy cause. Everyone in the genealogical community should be proud, as the resulting digitization efforts will provide an illuminating collection of documents, freely accessible, that would have been lost to future generations if not for our actions today.
