The Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS) has launched a competition to encourage children aged 5-16 to develop an interest in genealogy.

To enter, participants need to send in a copy of a completed double-page spread and/or family tree chart from the FFHS My Family Tree booklet, available by emailing admin@ffhs.org.uk.

Entrants must also write a short paragraph (no more than 450 words) describing what they most enjoyed about working on the booklet.

Winners from the age categories 5-8, 9-11 and 12-16 will be treated to a family day out at an approved living history museum or event up to a value of £100.

The FFHS judges will also award a runner-up in each category with a Vivitar Digital Camera.
