Yarra Plenty Regional Library Melbourne, Australia and blogger for the Library Service at http://ypgenealogy.blogspot.com/ http://yplocalhistory.blogspot.com.
The 2012 recipient of the Margery C Ramsay scholarship that is offered to a librarian in a Victorian Public Library every two years to support the recipient's professional development is Liz Pidgeon.
Liz wrote to me that she will go to London first and attend Who Do You Think You Are Live – as well as libraries and archives. Then over to New York City to visit the Public Library and Ellis Island. Then to Fort Wayne Indiana to visit the Allen County Public Library that has partnerships with Fold3 and Internet Archive. Then to Salt Lake City for Rootstech and a couple of days at the library before going to San Francisco".
Liz will be busy blogging and tweeting from these locations. I look forward to catching up with Liz and Mr Infolass at Rootstech in March.
Congratulations, Liz, you are a worthy recipient of this prestigious award.
