Family Tree Magazine is seeking a genealogy newbie to blog about exploring his or her roots!
For the past year, Shannon Bennett has held the position of Family Tree Firsts blogger, and has shared a vast number of posts wonderful posts walking us through her initial experiences with family research. However, thanks to all of the knowledge she’s gained, Shannon is ready to graduate beyond the title of “beginner genealogist.” Which is why we’re holding a contest to find her successor!
The editors of Family Tree Magazine will select one winner based on the strength of the application to be our Family Tree Firsts Blogger. Over the course of six months, you’ll have access to Family Tree Magazine’s how-to genealogy products, Family Tree University classes and webinars, as well as other products, services and surprises from our partners. You’ll blog once a week to tell the whole world about your genealogical finds, trials and tribulations. We might even put you in a future issue of the magazine!
We’re looking for someone who enjoys writing and is interested in his or her family history, but is just starting—or hasn’t yet started—to research it.
To enter, follow the link below to fill out a form and compose your first blog post. This will let us get to know you and see how you’d write your blog.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, Nov. 16. We’ll notify the winner by Dec. 1, and you’ll begin blogging with your holiday genealogy plans! Note that Family Tree Magazine reserves the right to feature your posts in any and all print and electronic media.
