I have been getting lots of questions about the fund that has been set up
in Birdie Holsclaw's name. Below is the information. It has not been posted
on the CCGS website yet so I am sending the information to this list and the
BCG list. Feel free to forward to any interested parties.
*Name:* Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Fund
*Description:* The Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Fund, established in 2010,
is a tribute to the memory of noted genealogist, Birdie Monk Holsclaw.
Distributions will be made to fund the following:
1. Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Lecture at the National Genealogical
Society annual conference.
2. Birdie Holsclaw Memorial Scholarship
Distributions are awarded to those who have an interest in genealogy and
wish to pursue genealogical related education at the Samford University
Institute of Genealogy & Historical Research (IGHR). Application is open to
all genealogists and consists of a short resume listing genealogical
experience and a 150-200 word essay describing how IGHR will help advance
their genealogical research skills.
*Colorado Council of Genealogical Societies (CCGS) has agreed to serve as
fund administrator for the memorial fund. Distributions will be awarded by
the CCGS Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Fund Committee which is comprised of
three committee members appointed by the CCGS Board of Directors.
Contributions are tax deductible through CCGS, which is a tax-exempt
non-profit organization. Checks should be made out to CCGS with notation
specifying Birdie Monk Holsclaw Memorial Fund, and mailed to P.O. Box 40270,
Denver, Colorado 80204-0270.
