Each year the Council of State Archivists presents an award to an individual or organization that has made significant contributions to efforts by state and local government archives to ensure the preservation and availability of the American historical record.

Joining Jim and Kathleen were Elder Robert and Sister Brenda Dickey of FamilySearch and Quentin Atkinson of Ancestry.com, CoSA’s Premier level corporate sponsor.

In presenting the award to Senator Orrin Hatch Jim and Kathleen cited his many contributions in drawing attention to and understanding of the importance of the history of his home state of Utah. The Senator was also recognized for his support and assistance at the national level for ensuring the survival and use of the American historical record to allow future generations to benefit from the many rich and compelling stories of the lives of the people, families and communities of this country.
