Winner of Mosher Award compiles database of Virginia ancestry


Victor S. Dunn of Ashburn has been awarded the 2014 Mosher Award for his work on colonial Virginia research for indexing obscure or difficult unpublished Virginia resources. His database, the Virginia Business Records and Manuscript Index, will be hosted by the Virginia Genealogical Society at the website www.vgs.org, projected to launch this month.

Dunn, a member and former vice president of the Shenandoah Valley Genealogical Society in Winchester, is a board-certified genealogist and full-time professional researcher. He coordinates the Virginia track at the Institute of Genealogy and Historical Research at Samford University in Alabama. He is also governor of the Virginia Genealogical Society.

For his database, he researched valley ancestors at Handley Library's Stewart Bell Jr Archives and has transcribed Frederick County records. Most recently he transcribed Frederick Parish, Frederick County, Vestry Book, 1764-1818, (Overseers of the Poor), which appeared in the Magazine of Virginia Genealogy."

The Mosher Award is administered by the BCG Education Fund. For more information, visit www.bcgcertification.org/educationfund/index.html
