Members’ Competition Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of FHSC

“A Golden Moment"

This is your opportunity to get into print! To commemorate the Society’s Golden anniversary in 2019, the Society is launching a very special members’ competition. Members are invited to submit an article to the competition for publication in the CHESHIRE ANCESTOR. In addition to publication, the winner will receive a £50 voucher to spend on FHSC Society publications, and a one - year digital subscription to Family Tree Magazine kindly offered by Warners Group Publications. Two runners-up will each receive a £25 voucher to spend on FHSC Society publications. The competition is open only to those who are current members of FHSC, and who joined prior to 1 July 2019. The article should be about “a golden moment” in your family history journey. This could be about breaking through a brick wall or an unexpected discovery related to the life of an ancestor. Ancestors can be male or female and the article should explain your special moment in your family history research. Further details are available in the June edition of Cheshire Ancestor.
