|President David Dellinger Making the Presentation to Ann|
Ann Wilson was presented with an Honorary Lifetime Membership in October. She was one of the earliest members of our Society, having joined the predecessor organization called Florida Society for Genealogical Research (FSGR).
In those early years, Ann helped canvas cemeteries, and she worked with Dorothy Boyer, first editor of the Society’s journal.
Ann and her late husband provided space for the Society’s first library and opened the doors one day a week to anyone who wanted to work with the Society’s holdings.
After her husband’s death, Ann became a home missionary, donated her personal collection of genealogical works to FSGR, and moved away for a short while.
She returned to the Largo area, and membership in what had become the Pinellas Genealogical Society.
We honor Ann for her significant contributions over more than 40 years of membership.
