We all know Schelly as a tireless Jewish researcher, journalist, blogger

Blog), online instructor, and international speaker. She was the
Jerusalem Post genealogy columnist (“It’s All Relative,” 1995-2005),
taught online Jewish genealogy at MyFamily.com, and is co-founder of
GenClass.com. Also a former three-term president of the Jewish Family
Research Association Israel.
Bravo Schelly for this well deserved distinction. The National
Genealogical Society is the most prestigious genealogical society
