At the Federation of Genealogical Societies's Conference in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jewish genealogy's own guru, Steve Morse, received the APGQ Excellence Award for his exceptional articles in last year's APG Quarterly, published by the Association of Professional Genealogists.
His "One-Step" search tools have assisted genealogists greatly by making it easier to find their ancestors within existing large genealogical databases.
Steve was also honored with the 2006 IAJGS Lifetime Achievement award for his One-Step site and its many resources. It all began with his frustration at not finding relatives in the Ellis Island Database.
A computer professional who holds an electrical engineering doctoral degree, he is best known as the architect of the Intel 8086 which sparked the PC revolution 25 years ago.
