Congratulations to David Wilson

At our Geelong Family History Group Meeting on Wednesday 27th April 2022, we presented David Wilson with Life Membership to our Society.

Our photograph shows John Stewart, Vice President (left), presenting the GFHG Certificate for Life Membership to David Wilson (right).

People who for many years have received their copy of our journal Pivot Tree either in the post or at GFHG meetings (pre COVID!) have David to thank.  David received boxes of the printed Pivot Tree and current Membership Lists, then sorted into relevant groups, produced labels, stuffed multiple envelopes with our journal, stuck the labels on, stamped our return to sender details on the back, then took the lot to the Post Office for mail outs.

It has been a number of years since David gave up driving, so those trips to the Post Office have been on foot.

David was also our President from 2017 to 2019.

We are no longer able to print our Pivot Tree from July 2022 for a number of reasons including the high cost for a small number of printed copies.  Instead we are changing our format and anyone wishing to have a printed copy will be able to print their own or use a local option like Officeworks.

In the meantime we sincerely thank David for his amazing contribution to our Society.

And don’t forget to look at Our History and Our Contributors on our website.
