Fern Eddy Schultz is Genealogist of the Year
Tuesday night's annual dinner meeting of the La Porte County Genealogical Society included the presentation of one award -- Genealogist of the Year. The honoree for 2011 was Fern Eddy Schultz, in recognition of her advice, publications, indexing, and enjoyment of family history, as well as her long service to the society dating back to when it was a part of the Northwest Indiana Genealogical Society. The presentation was a genuine surprise, as the committee members involved kept the secret well. In the picture, Dorothy Palmer presents Fern with the award.
