John D. Reid of Canada's-Anglo Celtic Connections has announced that, by popular request, he will be conducting his Genealogy Rockstar Poll for the 6th time. I think that John deserves a Rockstar Award himself! The Genealogy Rockstar Award 2017 is underway now and nominations are open. If you would like to add your won favourite genealogy personality to John's selected list of nominees (below), you can read about The Rockstar Poll on John's blog.

I am most honoured to be on the above list of nominees, especially since serious heart problems forced me to slow down on my genealogy blogging and speaking over the past year. Recently, however, I made a return to the genealogy blogging world and have added a fourth genealogy blog to my list of blogs as well as giving my others a complete makeover!

If you happen to have a favourite speaker, blogger or genealogy personality who you think is deserving of a Genealogy Rockstar award then please nominate them for the award now. Nominations are open until Ocotber 14 2017, and voting will start around October 15. Stay tuned to John's blog for more details.

Once again, many thanks to John D. Reid for his tireless efforts to promote peer recognition for contributions to family history and genealogy. Best of luck to all and no matter who wins remember that ALL Genealogists are Rockstars!
