Once again, John D. Reid over at Canada’s Anglo-Celtic Connections is hosting the annual Genealogy Rockstar Voting. This is the third year for the survey and John has compiled a list of 150 genealogy lecturers, authors and educators based on submitted nominations from his readers. Click here to read the post and access the link to cast your vote.
