    Memorial Grant Recipient Announced

    I am pleased to announce that Anthony Ray of Palmdale, California has been named as the recipient of the 2011 Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant. Anthony will receive a $500 cash award and free three-day registration to the 2011 Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree conference in Burbank June 10-12.

    The 2011 Grant is the first awarded by the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Fund to assist young genealogists seeking to advance their genealogical education. In recognition of Suzanne Freeman’s interest in Jamboree, this year’s award was directed to help a student attend the 2011 SCGS Jamboree genealogy conference.

    The family grant committee is grateful to the SCGS Jamboree for their support of the grant by providing a free three-day registration to the grant recipient. Any genealogist 18-25 years of age, attending school within the last year, and attending the SCGS Jamboree was eligible to apply for the 2011 Grant. The Grant Committee received applications from young genealogists across the nation interested in attending the SCGS 2011 Jamboree.

    Anthony Ray heads the cemetery indexing project of the Antelope Valley Genealogical Society and is a volunteer researcher assisting with Hispanic research at the Palmdale Family History Center. He has participated in four AVGS Kin-Dig events; this will be his first time attending the SCGS Jamboree. His particular genealogical interests include international heritage research, oral history, cemetery transcriptions, photo restoration, video and audio. Anthony is sophomore at West Coast Baptist College in Lancaster, California where he majors in Music Studies.

    Readers of The Family Curator will know that the Grant was established in 2010 in tribute to my mother, Suzanne Freeman, who was an enthusiastic Jamboree attendee and GeneaBlogger supporter. For the past two years, Mom helped pack GeneaBlogger Welcome Bags and greet bloggers at the conference. I know she would enjoy meeting the young genealogists who will be attending Jamboree this year.
