I looking for recommendations for a book series which covers the history of a society (i.e. humans or aliens) on another planet or in another universe. Something akin to the Dune or Ender series, preferably a Hugo Award winner.
Any recommendations would be appreciated!

...I'll probably get hammered for this, but the Dahak Trilogy has that happen in the third book.

Okay, moving on. The Belisarius Series by (Erik Flint and David Drake) has a time-war in the Roman era which leads to massive changes. The books (in order) are:-
An Oblique Approach
In the Heart of Darkness
Destiny's Shield
Fortune's Stroke
The Tide of Victory
The Dance of Time

The Destroyermen (by Taylor Anderson) has a WWII Destroyer shifted to an alternate world where they team up with the natives, seeking to boost their tech level so that they can keep their own ship working. The books in the series are:-
Into The Storm
Crusade
Maelstrom
Distant Thunders
Rising Tides
Firestorm
Iron Gray Sea
Storm Surge
Deadly Shores
Straits of Hell
Blood in the Water
Devil's Due
River of Bones
Pass of Fire
Winds of Wrath
~~~~~~

I can't write anywhere near as well as Weber
But I try nonetheless, And even do my own artwork.

I'll second what Michael said.
If you like either alternative history or simply our own planet and species but different, you can try a few other authors.
Steve (SM) Stirling - The Emberverse, An Isle in the Sea of Time.
Harry Turtledove - several different series, some SF, some fantasy.
Jim Butcher - The Dresden Files (intelligent fantasy and funny)
John Birmingham. Several different series. As he says "lots of big f***ing explosions".
Eric Flint's 1632.
If you like the classics there are lots of Asimov and Heinlein series, plus the Lensman series by EE Smith.
John Ringo's Posleen and other series
Larry Niven's Ringworld series
Ryk Spoor is a new author with several promising series.
David Drake Hammners Slammers and Belisarious

Most of those series I would recommend are already listed, but there is also Michael Cobley’s "Humanity’s Fire" trilogy, or Vernor Vinge’s Hugo Winner “A Deepness in the Sky”.

Especially towards the end.
