Congratulations to Curt Witcher of the Allen County Public Library! At the National Genealogical Society's recent Conference in the States in Richmond, Virginia, Curt was awarded the Filby Prize. The award, which was created in 1999, was named after the late P. William Filby and is given to a librarian who has made "significant contributions to the field of genealogy and local history." It includes a $1,000 prize.
