"Young Family Historian of 2005" awarded

BYU's Center for Family History and Genealogy presented the 2005 Young Family Historian award to Millennia's Geoff Rasmussen.

George Ryskamp, who presented the award at last week's 2006 Computerized Genealogy Conference, recalled Geoff's enthusiasm in class. "He brought to class copies of a pension file he recently received from the National Archives. In it was a copy of the family's bible which listed three generations of ancestry. Geoff could not stay in his seat he was so excited."

We'd like to congratulate Geoff for this recognition. Since graduating with a degree in Genealogy from BYU in 2002, he has served as director and vice-president of the Utah Genealogical Association, was course director and instructor for the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy, published the East Tennessee Tax Records Index 1778-1850; the Genealogy Daily Calendar; and Plucking, Plotting and Places: a Video Tutorial of AniMap; as well as several Legacy video training CDs.

We're happy to have him as part of our Millennia team.
