The Life of a Rockstar

Sometime yesterday between dealing with technical issues on a website, writing a blog post and practicing a genealogy presentation for this coming Saturday, I learned I'm a Rockstar. Not just any Rockstar but a Genealogy Rockstar.

As I was drowning in work and deadlines, this bit of news added a small pep to my step.

I am honoured to be among such a prestigious list of the Top 10 Genealogy Rockstars in Canada.   I placed 7th; you can see the entire list below, and read more about the top Genealogy Rockstars and the Superstars at John Reid's Canada's Anglo-Celtic Connection.

Canada's Top Ten Genealogy Rockstars

1. Gail Dever 
2. Lorine McGinis Schulze
3. Christine Woodcock
4. Dave Obee
5. Kathryn Lake Hogan
6. Mike Quackenbush
7. Lynn Palermo
8. Jane MacNamara
9. David Pike
9. Glenn Wright

And as I eluded to in social media, I think we can use this opportunity to challenge each other and ourselves. The winners will be the all those who benefit from our work.

I especially wanted to thank those who voted. This is my first time on the list, and I need to thank you my readers and all those who attend my lectures, listen to my webinars, read my blogs and books. I am continually motivated by your belief in me and more importantly by your passion to research and write your family history.

Thank you, I look forward to another great year. Now back to work.
