Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Who is Your Genealogy Idol?

Hey genea-philes - it's SATURDAY NIGHT, and time for more GENEALOGY FUN!!!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to:

1)  Legacy Family Tree webinar viewers selected the second Genealogy Idol today (see  Did you watch it, and vote in it?  If not, you could watch it now (I hope...).

2)  Decide which genealogy industry persons you would like to see compete in the next Genealogy Idol competition.  And tell us why!

3)  Tell us about it in your own blog post, in a comment to this blog post, in a Facebook status post, or a Google Plus Stream post.

Here's mine:

I'm tempted to rattle off three of the most famous genealogists in America at this point - like Tom Jones, Elizabeth Shown Mills and Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak.  That might be really interesting, but I would hate for any of them to lose.

Here are my three contestants for the "Google" Genealogy Idol contest:

*  Lisa Louise Cooke - the author of the book "The Genealogists' Google Toolbox."

*  Daniel M. Lynch - the author of the book "Google Your Family Tree."

*  Gena Philibert Ortega - presenter of "Using Google in Your Genealogy"

These three well known and wonderful presenters would certainly give the audience a number of superb tips on how to use Google for furthering our genealogy research.
