The Illinois State Genealogical Society offers its deepest condolences on the death of Past President Nancy Thomas. Nancy was the president of DCGS from 1979-1981 and 2009-2012. She received the Illinois State Genealogical Society Local Service award in 1981 for outstanding service to DCGS. in March 2018, she received the DCGS Founder's Memorial Award for steadfast commitment to the Society. Nancy was also President of the Computer Assisted Genealogical Group of Northern Illinois (CAGGNI) from 2013-2015 and chaired the first GeneaQuest Conference in 2016. Nancy was also a recent member of the ISGS "Ask Away, Write Away" Writer's group, and everyone appreciated her insight and advice, and her determination to finish her family history.
Nancy will be greatly missed, and ISGS is grateful for her contributions to Illinois genealogy.
