A Birthday Honour for Yorkshire Family History

OPauline Litton MBEn 10 May, Mrs Pauline Litton was presented with the MBE by the Prince of Wales for her services to genealogy and family history. Pauline, for many years the secretary of the Yorkshire Parish Register Section of the YAS, was accompanied by her husband, Roger, her daughter and her grandson. Because of an injury from which he is now recovering well, her husband attended the ceremony in a wheelchair, but at least it secured for him, and the family, front-row seats to witness Pauline's investiture.
