The Newsletter of the Irish Family History Forum, edited by Jim Regan, has been honored for the 10th consecutive year by the National Genealogical Society. In May, it was named by the NGS at its annual conference the best newsletter for a small genealogical society for the sixth time. It has earned a second place four times.
