I am very happy to let you know that Judy Baston won this year's IAJGS
Lifetime Achievement Award. The award was announced and bestowed at the
Banquet in Jerusalem on Thursday evening, July 9.

Judy is very involved in numerous genealogy organizations besides
LitvakSIG.
The inscription on the award reads: "In recognition of Judy's tireless
work as: a LitvakSIG board member; moderator of the LitvakSIG
Discussion Group; membership of the JRI-Poland Board; Lomza Archive
Coordinator; and moderator of the Lodz Area Research Group and
BialyGen discussion groups. Judy was also involved in editing/
proofreading Yizkor Book translations for Ciechanowiec, Eisiskes and
Ostrow Mazowiecka, and is a sought after speaker."
Judy is also District Coordinator of the Lida and Oshmiany District
Research Groups of LitvakSIG and the moderator of the JRI-Poland
discussion Group. I probably missed something, so I apologize in advance.

In her "spare" time back home in California, Judy is very involved
with the Jewish Community Library of San Francisco where she
volunteers and helps conduct monthly genealogy workshops.

I am very proud to call Judy my friend and to say Mazel Tov!
