Message from the President - It is my pleasure to announce that the WAGS website (wags.org.au) has won the Geoff Riggs Award 2013 from the Federation of Family History Societies (UK).

Congratulations to Chris Loudon, our webmaster, and all the members who help to update the website. WAGS is the winner of the Large Society category as well as being declared Overall Winner.

WAGS website was highly commended in 2009, and won the award for best website in 2010. Last year we were able to enter again, and on Saturday we were announced as the winner for 2013.

Congratulations to Chris and everyone concerned. Well done and thank you.

Message from the Webmaster

Thank you Liana,

It is a team effort, and many people contribute in many different ways which all goes toward making the WAGS website the great resource that it is today.

If it weren't for the support that we receive from all of those who contribute, we wouldn't be able to maintain the level that we do. This includes those who update pages, provide material to be included, whether stories, articles, transcriptions or images, or answers to questions in the forums. It is all about the contributions.

I won't name names for fear of leaving someone out, but they know who they are, so thank you for the support.

The award belongs to, and is recognition of WAGS volunteers.

Chris - WAGS Webmaster
