     UGA was pleased to honor Paula Stuart-Warren, a Fellow of the Utah Genealogical Association, with an Award of Merit. A staple at SLIG since it's inception in 1997, Paula has been committed to sharing her love of family history. Paula is a beloved instructor because her presentations are lively, yet professional and educational. In her course, "American Genealogy Records and Resources," and its various iterations, she has provided her knowledge and expertise to countless students, infusing them with her passion for researching family history with a high standard for excellency.

     Paula works full time in genealogical and historical research, as a researcher, lecturer, and author. A Board-certified genealogist since 1988, she is a firm believer in continuing education in genealogy and it is evident in all her activities. She has lectured at NGS and FGS since the early 1990s and has served in various roles with the Association of Professional Genealogists, the Minnesota Genealogical Society, and the Federation of Genealogical Societies. She has also coordinated a course at the Genealogical Research Institute of Pittsburgh (GRIP).

     Paula has received numerous awards for her volunteer work and professionalism in the field of genealogy. Some of her notable awards include:

  • Fellow, Minnesota Genealogical Society
  • APG's Grahame T. Smallwood, Jr. Award of Merit from the Association of Professional Genealogists
