At last weekend’s Southern California Genealogical Society Jamboree in Burbank, California, the Genealogy Guys Podcast and Vivid-Pix gave MyHeritage Ltd. its highest Unsung Heroes Award for extraordinary service to the genealogy community.
Genealogy Guy Drew Smith said in his presentation, “MyHeritage has been involved with numerous pro bono projects over the years. We are here today to recognize the completion of their unprecedented five-year project to digitize every cemetery in Israel. MyHeritage employees, friends, and volunteers systematically photographed and transcribed almost every grave. The company specifically recruited full-time employees to complete the work.” Read the full press release on the Genealogy Guys Blog to see more on the well-deserved award and others that were presented.
The Genealogy Guys, George G. Morgan and Drew Smith, co-hosts and producers of the oldest continually produced genealogy podcast, and Rick and Randy, creators of Vivid-Pix, makers of RESTORE photo and document restoration software, will continue their partnership to acknowledge and celebrate those members of the genealogy community who digitize or index photos and other documents of value to genealogical researchers.
