"Congratulations! Whitney Research Group has been reviewed and chosen to bear the 2003-2004 Golden Web Award." I.A.W.M.D. Award: Award3.gif
"I would be very happy to offer an award to your site. It is a very attractive site, crisp and clean, informative and easy to use and offers a valuable service to those doing family research. Good job!" --Helen M. Staiger

Berkhoff-Berkhoff Silver Birch Leaf Award: Award2.gif
"While surfing on the net, I found your Whitney website. Several times I came back to visit it. This because I am truly impressed by it. Being the editor of a one surname site myself ("Berkhof-Berkhoff. 1575-1900" at I appreciate the manner in which you stimulate genealogical research to the mentioned surname and how you present sources and results (which is in both cases a lot!) in a simple and clear website, which is real joy to visit.
"In addition to this I am impressed by several aspects of your site, like: the extensive Archives section, where I found clear transcribations of sources, and the extensive Member Lineages. I think your site is indeed a good tool for Whitney research." --Marnix Berkhoff

White-Jones Genealogy Award: Award1.gif
"I don't know what to say. Your Whitney Family Genealogy site is everything I was looking for when I created the Gold Award. (You don't need any spinning logos. :) ) I never thought I would find a site like it so quickly. I though it would take months for me to find a treasure like your Whitney Family Site. Your site is a 'must see' for any Whitney researcher. It makes me wish I was a Whitney (although I am a Davis 7 generations back). It's very easy to navigate and has a wealth of information. That's what makes it so beautiful." --Chris Swensen-Hartie
