The Geoff Riggs Award for the Best Website

The FFHS has been awarding the accolade of 'Best website' annually since 2001 to a member society. As the importance of this form of media has increased since the inception of the award, the judging process has been reviewed and it is now seen by the FFHS as an annual opportunity to judge those websites entered for the award against specified criteria, thus creating a 'benchmark' with the aim of improving the overall quality of genealogy and family history society websites.

The award is sponsored by ABM Publishing publishers of Family Tree magazine and the FFHS. The winning society will receive a total of £250 prize money, a trophy and certificate. The winning society will be featured in an edition of the magazine following announcement of the winners.

The winners and runners-up, can display an emblem on their website with a link to the FFHS page announcing the award.
