    Family Tree Magazine Knows How to Pick 'em

    Anthony Ray, Tony Burroughs

    where Anthony was presented as the 2011 recipient of the
    Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant.

    Imagine my surprise when I read the Genealogy Insider's post, We Knew Him When, highlighting Anthony Ray, recipient of the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Memorial Student Genealogy Grant. It seems that I was scooped by Diane Haddad of Family Tree Magazine in spotting young genealogy talent.

    Anthony was featured in the January 2008 Family Tree Magazine as a member of the Antelope Valley Genealogical Society and webmaster for The Berreyesa Researcher family history website. At the time, Anthony was only 16 years old but already an active member of his local society, heading up three committees.

    You can read the full 2008 article here, and read more about Anthony's current research here.
