The Annual iGene Awards on the 102nd Edition of CoG
Best Picture: This one is easy. While it is not genealogy related, there is no doubt this award goes to A National Geographic Moment where I managed to catch an osprey flying along with a fresh catch in his talons. Taking a photograph like this has been a dream of mine for many, many years.
Best Screen Play: This would be about Roy Bindon's WWI service in Russia. The casting committee has selected Liam Neeson to play Roy, Frances Bavier (Aunt Bee from The Andy Griffith Show) to play Roy's wife Caroline, and Katharine Hepburn to play his daughter.
Best Documentary: The Time Capsule series is the winner of the Best Documentary award. Now if I can just get Ken Burns to make it into a film!
Best Biography: In March, one of the Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenges was to feature an ancestor on WDYTYA. My subject was my great grandfather the baker, John Eugene Roos and the recipient of the Best Biography award.
Best Comedy: I can't help but chuckle when I think of the conversation with Teenager over the Emergency Drinking Water. It highlights the generational differences we often experience.
Before signing off for the 2011 iGene Awards, I would like to thank Jasia of the Academy of Genealogy and Family History for her tireless work in putting on the annual iGene Awards and for graciously allowing participants to include her graphic.
Well that's it for this year, here at The Turning of Generations. It's time to roll up the red carpet until next year.
