Family History Matters 
 The blog of the GSV 

You have just under three weeks to enter the GSV Writing Prize 2022 - closing Friday 26 August

Expiry Date
03 February, 2023

Each year the GSV awards a Writing Prize for family-history writing.

The purpose of the Prize is:

  • to encourage the writing of family history
  • to provide an opportunity for recognition and publication
  • to publish the winner as an example of quality family history writing

Last year's winner Sue Wight, in ’The Mystery of the extra Booth Hodgett’, conveyed the thrill of her chase in solving a family history mystery. You can read the judge’s report from last year on the GSV website and also read the winning entry in the December 2021 Ancestor issue.

The GSV website / Ancestor tab gives essential guidelines for writing articles that may appeal to the readership of our journal and contribute to our told stories.

So there is time and incentive to finalise that article you have been working on!

Entries close 4 pm Friday 26 August

Full details of the competition are on the website
