The following announcement was written by Eneclann:
Why is your Family History Important to You?
Do you enjoy researching your family history? Have you discovered anything surprising, unusual or unexpected during your research? What has the experience of finding out who your family were and how they lived meant to you?
If your family history is something that is important to you why not write it down and submit it to Eneclann's Genealogy Essay Competition.
Eneclann in conjunction with Irish Roots, Ireland’s leading genealogy magazine, is sponsoring a genealogy essay competition. The first prize is €500 (US$650 /UK£350) and will be published in Irish Roots, Ireland’s leading Genealogy Magazine. There are also lots of runner up prizes.
Entries should be a maximum of 500 words entitled Why my Family History is important to me. Every entry will get a €5 discount on any Eneclann or Archive CD Books purchase. For full details see the Eneclann web site www.eneclann.ie .
The judging panel will be chaired by John Grenham, author of Tracing your Irish Ancestors, and will include Tony McCarthy, editor of Irish Roots and Fiona Fitzsimons, APGI member, and Director of research at Eneclann.
