Pamela Ann Morrow Chilton Named Outstanding Volunteer

Since 2003, the Washington State Genealogical Society has recognized more than 400 outstanding volunteers, nominated by their local society or genealogical organization for their service and dedication. These volunteers are the backbone of their local society, giving their time and expertise, to the organization and the field of genealogy. In the coming months, you will be introduced to each of the 2014 award recipients and learn why they received the 2014 WSGS Outstanding Volunteer Award.

Today we're introducing Pamela Ann Morrow Chilton of Longview who was nominated by the Lower Columbia Genealogical Society (LCGS).  She was recognized for her leader­ship, knowledge, and volunteer efforts toward the goals and operation of the LCGS.

Ms. Chilton is a dedicated member of her local society, as well as the Washington State Genealogical Society (WSGS) where she was a founding and lifetime member.

Ms. Chilton is also extremely committed to the LCGS. She has served as President for two terms and started the custom of monthly genealogical presentations at their meetings, as well as giving educational programs herself. She has served on the LCGS Board of Directors for three years, and was a key organizer for the WSGS Conference in Kelso in 1986. In addition, she spearheaded a project to identify every burial location in Cowlitz County and was instrumental in its publication.

Ms. Chilton follows-through with every project she tackles. She works well with other team members and provides good direction and leadership.  She practices excellent research techniques and is always eager to share her knowledge. As a result, she richly deserved to be a recipient of a WSGS Outstanding Volunteer Award.
