Stoltz-Wood wins genealogy award
The Wisconsin Historical Society, in conjunction with the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society, has awarded Helen Stoltz-Wood of Hudson a 2012 Genealogy/Family History Award for "From Denmark to Wisconsin: One Family -- Two Ships, 1641-2011."
An independent panel of judges found "From Denmark to Wisconsin" tells the saga of a Danish-American family from the 17th century in Denmark, through their 19th-century immigration to northwestern Wisconsin, to the present, primarily in Polk and St. Croix counties.
Extensively documented from Danish and American records, and well-illustrated, "From Denmark to Wisconsin" provides interesting context in its attempt to illustrate the "whys" as well as the "hows" of the family's history. The award-winning family history was selected from a field of five nominees.
The Wisconsin Historical Society's Board of Curators approved the award at its meeting in Bayfield on June 23.
