Joy Swearingen writes about Ada Hubbard of LaHarpe, aka “Mrs. Genealogy”, in the Hancock County Journal-Pilot (Illinois). Ada was recently honored with the Illinois State Genealogical Society’s Community Service Award for the work that she’s done. According to the article: It took four pages to list her accomplishments for the Society and the LaHarpe Community in general.
Excerpt from the article:
â€œAda truly deserves this award,â€ said Eckhardt. â€œShe donates her free time to doing this work with the LaHarpe Historical and Genealogical Society.
â€œIt is sometimes tedious tasks that probably wouldnâ€™t get done without her. She makes our small town society run smoothly and for the size of our town, our societyâ€™s information and resources put many larger ones to shame. Any person that has done any genealogy in this town comments on the fantastic resources we have and how helpful the people are,â€ Eckhardt said.
