Genealogy Writing Competition – Dallas Genealogical Society (no, entries do NOT have to be about Dallas!)

WritingCompetitionSubmissions for the Dallas Genealogical Society 2012 Writing Competition are due by September 30, 2012.  You do not have to be a DGS member to enter, and the articles don’t necessarily have to be about Dallas genealogy.

Articles are to be 750-5000 words in length and should fall into the following categories:

  • basic and advanced methodologies and case studies (not limited by geography)
  • family histories and genealogies, particularly those linked to North Texas, including those who came from or left to settle elsewhere
  • transcriptions, abstracts or indexes of record groups (including family records) not yet filmed or digitized that relate to Dallas or North Texas
  • ethnic, house, or military histories related to Dallas and surrounding counties

Winning articles will be published in a future DGS publication.  Monetary prizes will also be awarded.  Winners will be announced in December 2012.

Complete details, including rules and submission guidelines, can be found at the DGS website.
