The UK Federation of Family History Societies has launched a competition aimed at children and young people aged between 5-16 years. It is hoped that with the help and encouragement of their older family members, they might develop an interest in family history. The My Family Tree booklet produced by the FFHS will help to start their research adventure.
To enter the Competition competitors must:
- Submit a photocopy or scanned copy of a completed double page spread of their ‘My Family Tree’ booklet and/or the completed family tree chart as printed in the booklet
- Write a short paragraph (no more than 450 words) describing what they enjoyed most about working on the booklet.
Free copies of the booklet can be requested via email or post. Full details with links to the Rules and Entry Form are on the Home Page of the FFHS website here.
Please note the closing date for the competition is Thursday July 13th 2017.
