UGA Names 2010 Fellow (FUGA)

Paula Stuart-Warren, a talented and engaging teacher as well as meticulous researcher has been awarded the UGA Fellow award.

Fellows are awarded "in recognition of living individuals whose distinguished contributions and on-going commitment to the field of genealogy are of national or international scope. This may be evidenced by any combination of publications, teaching and speaking, or leadership of major genealogical organizations over a significant period of time." Isn't this a perfect description of Paula?

We asked some of her colleagues to share their thoughts and here is what they shared:

D. Joshua Taylor wrote, "Paula Stuart-Warren's personal and upbeat personality has touched countless genealogists--and future genealogists. Her work will continue to influence the field for years to come."

Kory Meyerink wrote, "Paula Stuart-Warren has been with SLIG since the 2nd or 3rd year. She is a great teacher, writer and researcher. She is a long time volunteer for FGS and has truly made an impact on the genealogical community nationwide."

Paula has been tireless in mentoring intermediate genealogists at SLIG. She authored Your Guide to the Family History Library and the Minnesota Genealogical Reference Guide, as well as numerous other articles. She is a prolific lecturer and a dedicated teacher.

Thank you, Paula, for your tireless efforts to mentor genealogical researchers. We love and appreciate you!

  1. The first SLIG I attended (2007) was Paula's American Records ~ I was a newbie to genealogy and she was extremely helpful and very encouraging. She is an excellent speaker and she was quite helpful in looking at my research problem and giving me advice on how to proceed with Minnesota research.

    I recently attended the 2011 SLIG and although I only saw her in passing a few times, she stopped to say hello and asked me how my research was going ~ great memory and great teacher/cheerleader. You made a Fellow of a very deserving individual ~ congrats to Paula.
