Rockstar Genealogists 2017 poll: voting ends Saturday

Rockstar Genealogists 2017 poll is now open for your votes.

Run by blogger John D Reid of Anglo-Celtic-Connections, the Rockstar awards were introduced as a way of helping the organisers of lecture programmes to know who is popular internationally and in different regions.

John says:"Rockstar genealogists are those who give 'must attend' presentations at family history conferences or as webinars, who when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. If you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter they are likely Rockstar candidates. For clarity, it's about communication and influence not who's the best researcher."

Voting requires access through a Google account. This stops people voting multiple times. If you don't already have an account, you can sign up for free here.

You can  select as many or as few of the nominated genealogists as you wish, but you can submit only once.

All votes need to have been submitted by 2pm (EDT-USA/Canada) / 7pm Dublin/London.
