Spotlight County of the Month
Scott County, AR
Kudos from our peers is always a great thing, but unsolicited kudos from a visitor simply makes our day.
The Spot Light County of the Month award this month goes to Scott County AR - Delaine Edwards, CC. Delaine's site
was chosen because a visitor took the time to write to the AR SC and express her appreciation. Here's what Elaine
Blackwell Thomasson had to say:
"I love Genweb, and always look at the appropriate county site when I am doing research for a
particular family or individual. The quality and quantity of information varies hugely, as I am sure
you are aware.
"Fortunately for me, a lot of my research is done in Scott County, Arkansas. Scott County is
certainly not a wealthy place, and its resources are limited, but the dedicated group of volunteers
at the Scott County Historical Society make a huge difference.
"Especially to be commended is Delaine Edwards, the tireless coordinator for Scott County.
Delaine is personally adding many cemetery listings to the county pages, and she is fantastic at
answering questions, and directing people to appropriate resources. She is quick and accurate,
and remembers an astonishing amount of information. If I wrote to her right now and asked her for
information contained in some of the resources that the county volunteers have assembled, she would
write back quickly and completely. She up loads pictures, county records, and much more.
"I hope there is some way that you recognize and honor especially deserving volunteers.
If so, Delaine Edwards should be on your short list. She is amazing."
