“Family and Church History Department Receives Two Awards,” Ensign, July 2002, 78
The Family and Church History Department recently received two awards for its FamilySearch Web site and for its publication Denmark: Finding Records of Your Ancestors, Part A.
The Computerworld Honors Program honored the department for its use of information technology in its www.familysearch.org Web site, one of the largest genealogical research sites on the Internet. Information about the site will now be included in the more than 150 libraries, museums, and universities throughout the world that make up the Computerworld Honors Archives.
The Intermountain Chapter of the Society for Technical Communications presented the department a merit award for Denmark: Finding Records of Your Ancestors, Part A. The workbook provides step-by-step, user-friendly directions for beginning researchers of Danish genealogy. The same format is being used by the Family and Church History Department in the development of similar workbooks for research in other genealogical backgrounds, including Eastern and Western European, Asian, African-American, American Indian, and Pacific Islander.
