IGRA member, Schelly Talalay Dardashti, received the Outstanding Project/Resource/Program 2016 Award at the Gala Banquet of the recent Seattle conference.

This award was given “For Tracing the Tribe: The Jewish Genealogy Blog and Facebook page”. This award was given in recognition that: “These electronic media resources have become a mainstay of Jewish genealogy information and education on the web, leading the way in the medium, pointing out new resources, popularizing less known ones and keeping us informed of IAJGS conference proceedings and news, as well as other essential Jewish genealogy news.”

We hope that you are all acquainted with Tracing the Tribe – for those who are not aware of this resource, please check it out! (You need to make a request to be a part of the group.) Everyone can learn from and contribute something to this unique group.

Mazal tov to Schelly on this important recognition of her contribution to Jewish genealogy.
