It’s Awards Season for Genealogy!

Some may think that awards season is over with the Oscars, but for family historians, it seems to be in full swing. While I was off last week, three separate awards announcements came through my e-mail.

RootsTelevision Wins Four Tellys
The first notice I received was an e-mail from Megan to tell me that RootsTelevision had won four Telly awards. The Telly awards honor the best local, regional, and cable television commercials programs and segments; film and video productions; and web commercials, videos, and films. RootsTelevision won for DNA Stories: A Tale of Two Fathers (documentary), Heir Jordan: Extreme Genealogy (entertainment), Roots Books: Psychic Roots (talk show), and Flat Stanley’s Family Tree (children’s audience). The press release is available on Megan’s blog.
