ISFHWE Writing Competition


I had the privilege to be the Contest Coordinator for the 2013 International Society of Family History Writers & Editors’ “Excellence-in-Writing” competition. There were some great submissions; you did not have to be a member to submit to the different categories. As you research your family history, why not consider writing about it and submitting to a contest online or in your area! It is exciting to win, but just as exciting to share your story.

Here are the winners of this year’s competition. Hope to see your name next year! Information for the 2014 competition will be posted soon.
