AWARDS PRESENTED TO
The Livingston County MI Historical & Genealogical Site &
The Mardos Memorial Library Site
In April of 1997 when I was notified that this site and particularly the 1895 Atlas portion of it was chosen as the "Genealogical Site of the Month for April 1997" by The Colorado Genealogical Society and is on one of their feature pages called the "The Colorado Cool Site of the Month". I checked out this site (which sadly does not exist any longer it appears) and the choices that they have made for the last two years are also accessible and I found things I never knew existed, so it is great. Thanks again for the honor, I am truly appreciative.
SITE WINS "SIGGY" RECOGNITION!
On August 8th, 1997 I was stunned, surprised and deeply appreciative as I was notified that I had won the second national award from the United States Internet Genealogical Society. Since that time I have become a Corporate Sponsor of the organization because of all of the great works this group is doing to get free access information on the net for researchers.
If you are interested in information about the United States Internet Genealogical Society please click on the word Siggy at the top of this paragraph and it will take you to their web site with tons of membership, sponsorship and other pertinent information. Sadly due to very bad administration and neglectful use of donations this organization failed.
In July of 1998 the 1895 Atlas portion of the Livingston County MI USGenWeb Project was awarded the Family History Favorite Award. Below is a portion of the notification that I received from them regarding the award. I was very stunned and pleased that they would pick out this site from so many that are out there with phenomenal information for genealogists.
In recognition of excellence in providing the genealogical community with this valuable research site, Ancestry.com is happy to announce that your site, 1895 U.S. Atlas has been awarded the "Family History Favorite Award". Your site will be featured in today's Ancestry Daily News with a brief description. (June 17, 1998)
Congratulations on a job well done!

Congratulations! Your page:http://www.livgenmi.com/1895/NE has been selected to receive a Links2Go Key Resource award in the Nebraska topic!
The Links2Go Key Resource award is both exclusive and objective. Fewerthan one page in one thousand will ever be selected for inclusion.
Further, unlike most awards that rely on the subjective opinion of "experts," many of whom have only looked at tens or hundreds of thousands of pages in bestowing their awards, the Links2Go Key Resource award is completely objective and is based on an analysis of millions of web pages. During the course of our analysis, we identify which links are most representative of each of the thousands of topics in Links2Go, based on how actual page authors, like yourself, index and organize links on their pages. In fact, the Key Resource award is so exclusive, even we don't qualify for it (yet ;)!
Once again, congratulations on your award!

I was so honored to receive word from Juliana Smith at Ancestry that both my Livingston County MI and my Chase County NE sites had received their Family History Favorite Award.
You guys are the reason I keep putting up the data, thanks for your support.
The Jeff Murphy Award Winner - October 1999
I would like to announce the recipients of the Jeff Murphy Award for Excellence in USGenWeb Pages for the month of October 1999:
Pam Rietsch Livingston Co., MI
These awards are being given to excellent sites within the USGenWeb Project. The Award homepage is at: http://pweb.netcom.com/~gsdownr/jmaward.html. Nominations are now open for next months award winners (and for unrewarded states). If you know of somebody with an outstanding USGenWeb site, please e-mail me, and we'll get them the recognition they deserve. I do not know where they moved the page with their awards and I am spending more time getting data on line than searching out places to give me awards.
Congratulations! Your website "Chase County Nebraska GenWeb" has been awarded Access Genealogy's "Superior Imaging Award".
The description of your listing in our honor roll online is as follows:
Superior Imaging Award
Chase County Nebraska GenWeb
I've awarded Chase Co., USGenWeb the imaging award for their placement of images of two manuscripts online: The 1892 Gardiner's Atlasof English History and 1891 Shippers Gazette. There are many other great images from other manuscripts and maps available as well here, but these two are the ones which overtly impress me. Take a look at how Pam Rietsch uses imaging to enhance genealogy online!
