|My efforts maintaining the Cayuga County NYGenWeb Project and local
historical society websites are credited with helping to share local history
and bring visitors to the county for the purpose of researching their ancestry.
As a result of this and other contributions, I was honored as the recipient
of the 2008 Millard Fillmore History Award for
outstanding contribution of a community
member in the area of local
history. This series of Millard Fillmore History Awards
were presented at the annual banquet for Cayuga County NY municipal
historians and historical societies on Friday September 19th, 2008.
Information about the awards banquet can be found within the Cayuga
County Historian's September 2008 Newsletter.
This honor would not have been possible without all the terrific volunteers
that continue to make the Cayuga County NYGenWeb Project websites such a
wonderful asset for genealogy and local history researchers on the Internet.
Please accept my sincere THANK YOU, to everyone who
has shared (and continue to share) their information, research, time &
skills with the Cayuga County NYGenWeb Project websites.
Bernie Corcoran, Cayuga County
