Genealogist Nathan Murphy honored as Fellow by the American Society of Genealogists

My long-time genealogy friend, Nathan Murphy, of AncestryProGenealogists has been honored as a Fellow at the annual meeting of the American Society of Genealogists. This is essentially the highest honor any professional genealogist can receive in the United States. Here is a copy of the announcement from
One of our AncestryProGenealogists experts, Nathan Murphy, was honored Saturday evening as a new Fellow at the annual meeting of the American Society of Genealogists (ASG). The American Society of Genealogists recognizes genealogists for their scholarship in the realm of publication. Nathan has had numerous articles featured in some of the top scholarly journals of the field, including:

"The English Origin and Royal Descent of Margaret Domville, the wife of Robert Hatton of Lymm, Cheshire and John Banks of Maryland,” The American Genealogist, Vol. 87, No. 3 (Jan./Apr. 2015):226-235; Vol. 87, No. 4 (Jul./Oct. 2015):285-298. 
“The Devon Seafaring Origins of William Byrd's Mother's Family: Grace (Stegge) Byrd of London, Thomas Stegge of Charles City County, Virginia, and Captain Abraham Read of Charles City County, Virginia; Including Additional Details about William Byrd's Father John Byrd's Career as a London Goldsmith,” The American Genealogist, Vol. 84, No. 4 (October 2010):241-256. 
“Origins of Colonial Chesapeake Indentured Servants: American and English Sources,” National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 93, No. 1 (March 2005):5-24.

I have to admit that the world of the Fellows of the American Society of Genealogists is about as distant from my own present experience and involvement as can be imagined. But I do recognize that these people are super genealogists.
