The Tracer Wins 2014 NGS Award

The Tracer is this year’s winner of the National Genealogical Society Newsletter Competition in the category of County or Local Genealogical or Historical Society.

As described on the NGS website, “A panel of three judges reviewed two issues of each submitted newsletter on these criteria: material interest, variety and originality; writing and editing quality; readability and attractiveness; and overall publication make-up.”

The judges’ comments included “it was one of the most professional newsletters that they have reviewed,” and “the content was far above any of the other nominations submitted for 2014.”     
The award was presented to Deb Cyprych, editor of The Tracer, at the NGS Conference in the States held in Richmond, Virginia May 7-10. The Tracer was honored with this award in the same location in 2007.

Great Timing!
