Jana Greenhalgh Receives UGA's Distinguished Service Award

     Jana has provided outstanding service to the Utah Genealogical Association during the past two years in her capacity as the committee chair of First Families, which reviews pioneer membership applications for First Families of Utah, and as the content provider for the column "Crossroads for Kids" in UGA's quarterly publication, Crossroads magazine.

     Passionate about involving children in family history and educating parents and grandparents to find simple ways to make family history a part of everyday life, Jana proposed that UGA provide content and support for children and young adults interested in genealogy. Through her efforts the readership of Crossroads magazine now reaches through the generations!

     As exemplary role models for the past three years, Jana and her children have blogged regularly about their experiences with family history at "The Genealogy Kids," and will serve as RootsTech ambassadors this coming February.

     Jana is an Accredited Genealogist® and has been involved in family history since her youth. She graduated from BYU in 2003 with a BA in Genealogy/Family History. Her research emphasis was British Isles but she enjoys research in U.S. and Scandinavian records, and has a rich Utah heritage. She is currently an adjunct faculty member for BYU-Idaho's online family history degree program, and she delights to be a part of the ever-growing world of genealogy education.
