Congratulations to Miriam Weiner, honored by BCG #general
Just saw a news release that the Board for Certification of Genealogists
has bestowed the honorary designation "Certified Genealogist Emeritus"
on Miriam Weiner. In doing so, the Board recognized her distinguished
career and thirty-year certification. President Jeanne Larzalere Bloom
recognized Miriam as the first Jewish genealogist to become certified by the BCG.
To us, of course, she is known for her pioneering work in the archives
of Eastern Europe and the Routes to Roots Foundation.
BCG is a national organization certifying the skills of professional genealogists.
I understand that to become certified in the first place is a lengthy
and intensive process of research, writing, review and peer evaluation. To be named
emeritus is a huge honor. One may learn more about BCG on their website at
Congratulations, Miriam, for your brilliant career in service to
genealogy and Jewish genealogy, in particular!
MODERATOR: We are all grateful for the work Miriam has done to advance Jewish
genealogical research. This message is not intended to begin a discussion. To
send your congratulations to Miriam, please do so through her website.
