Bullitt County Genealogical Society
Service Awards


In 2018 Bullitt County Genealogical Society placed a ballot in their quarterly publication the Wilderness Road for their membership to vote to award a member for their outstanding service to the society. Voting took place over the last year. Ballots were collected and counted and on Saturday, December 8, 2018 the results were revealed and the award presentation took place.

After Ballots had been counted it was revealed that there was a tie. The officers conferred and made the decision to award both worthy winners. The winners were Society Secretary Shirley Miller who has served in that capacity for the last 13 years and Ed Lee who has been a volunteer at the Bullitt County History Museum for the last 10 years and has served as director of the Bullitt County Genealogical Society for the last 4 years.

Thank you for your generous service to the society and to the Bullitt County History Museum.

The Award was also given posthumously to Mildred Eddington. No award photo was made.
