Oh No! Genea-Speak Award needs new Logo

It wasn’t until after I pressed publish on my last post that the recognition was made.  It appears that the Genea-Speak award has used the logo from the National Genealogical Society.

Maybe footnoteMaven or someone else with a designer’s eye and Photoshop skills will design a new logo for the Genea-Speak award.


  1. Yep, I noticed it also the other day but didn’t have the guts to blog about it or even complain about it.

    We may all have to replace it someday soon if somebody in NGS gets their trademarks in a twist.

    Congrats on being named twice – I’m sure it will happen again. Love the descendants chart – are you going to keep it up-to-date? Megan selected Blaine Bettinger and Chris Dunham.

    Have a wonderful Christmas, Mark.

  2. Good eyes, Mark! I’m removing my image from my post about the award.

  4. Actually, the pic used for the award came from an old [I'm talking mid-1970's] clip art package [and I'm not talking computer clip art guys, but the old mimeo-graph kind! Lieteral clip-art!] I knew it “looked familiar” when I put the award together, but didn’t place it until Thursday. Actually, if you’ll go to my blog, and look down the left hand side, you will see the re-designed award. And please, if anyone recognizes this image…let me know! [It is actually an old kirigami pattern, that is not copyrighted due to its age.]
    Thanks for all the sharp eyes out there!
