Vote for Your Favourite Genealogy Rock Star

It's Genealogy Rockstar Time in the Genealogy Community. Choose your favourites from nearly 150 nominees.  What is a Genealogy Rockstar? John D. Reid defines this as
Rockstar genealogists are those who give "must attend" presentations at family history conferences or as webinars. Who, when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. Who you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter?
The list of nominees is here Please cast your vote at Rockstar Genealogist(s) 2014: voting now open before Saturday September 13th. 

Yes Olive Tree Genealogy is on the list of nominees under my name Lorine McGinnis Schulze, so if you want to vote for me, that's great! I'd love it if you did. If you don't want to vote for me, that's okay but  please do vote for someone.

IMHO, the guy that I would run to see, the person who has done the most for the genealogy community [ present company excepted], is Steve Morse. He is not on the list.

IMHO CeCe Moore should be given the award for Genealogy Rock Star-I am a founder of over 22,000 members called Search Squad on FB... in the two years since we have started our group-CeCe Moore has help find hundreds upon hundreds of adoptees inluding foundlings. Nobody I hav e ever seen has done so much for the genealogy community/adoption community as CeCe has. She has spent tons of hours of her own time in helping in search and recovery and she doesn't just leave them there after the search is over she is there with them until the reunion then more to make sure they are ok. It takes a real heart to do what she does and to do so tirelessly. Please make sure she gets the reward :) Hundreds of adoptees will agree :)
