To Galicia SIG, forwarded >from JewishGen:

We are most pleased to inform our readership that JewishGen has been chosen
by the Genealogy Forum on AOL to receive the Best Site Pick for the month of
December 1999.

GFSByron@... writes in part:
"Your site has been chosen because of its comprehensive nature in providing
a resource for people searching their Jewish heritage. For over fourteen
years, JewishGen has been the leader in plowing the path of Jewish genealogy
on the cyber-world making it easier for those that follow behind. JewishGen
not only provides surname databases where researchers can find each other
and join efforts, but the volunteers at JewishGen have a gold mine by freely
sharing their knowledge through research aids to help people learn where to
search for their ancestors. JewishGen also needs to be commended for
realizing the effects of working as a team not only among their 200+
volunteers but with numerous other Jewish interest groups as well.

The information and organization of your site shows your dedication and
effort in providing easily accessible information to other genealogists. On
behalf of the Genealogy Forum on AOL, we would like to thank you for your
time and effort in making the Internet a better place to do research."

To view the award logo go to our homepage, <>
and scroll down to the very bottom of the page. We display it proudly and
with heartfelt thanks to our volunteers who work behind the scenes, to those
who have come forth with their financial support of our efforts, and to all
who contribute the information they have acquired, thus participating in the
JewishGen mission of "preserving our history for future generations."

May I join with AOL and say to you all... well done!

Susan and the Officers and Board of JewishGen
