I want to let our readers know that Bridgett Schneider, found of Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness (RAOGK), passed away on Saturday, November 12, 2011. As mentioned by Dick Eastman of Eastman’s Online Genealogical Newsletter and Kimberly Powell of About.com, RAOGK has a long history of serving the genealogical community since 1999.
Our condolences go out to the Schneider family and I ask that you keep them in your thoughts and prayers at this time. RAOGK has been a tremendous resource to many, especially beginning genealogists, and represents the spirit of “giving back” for which our community is known.
