Today the Claybourn Genealogical Society received notice that it has received the “Award of Merit” from the Federation of Genealogical Societies. The following is portions of the letter CGS received:
The Federation of Genealogical Societies is proud to award The Claybourn Genealogical Society an Award of Merit for meritorious contributions benefiting the genealogical community. The Claybourn Family History website is truly indeed deserving of this award. Rich in family history biographical information which includes detailed accounts of many of these family members with citation references, if one is working on a Claybourn line, one would be remiss in not stopping at this website and spending some time there.
In addition, the Societies preservation concerns as example the “Claybourn Bible” is a strong commitment to the recording and documenting the family history while making sure the gems of the family remain intact.
The Federation of Genealogical Societies will honor its award winners at the opening session of the annual conference on Thursday 19 August 2010, in Knoxville, TN.
Many thanks to all of the CGS supporters who helped make this possible.
