As patron of the Society, it is my pleasure to announce an exciting new initiative designed to allow us all to share some of our research in the form of a short story about our ancestors. These stories should be less than about 1500 words and may be about a single ancestor or a couple. The ancestors should be Tasmanian or at least have a Tasmanian connection. There is no limit on the number of separate stories which may be submitted for publication. One or two photos may also be supplied.
Submission of stories is by uploading them on our website where you can browse or search other stories. You will also find writing guidelines to help you produce a story that readers will want to read.
There is no charge to either members or non-members for this service which may prove to be a great way to ensure your research survives.
The Society will benefit from this initiative because the addition of rich content to our website will attract new users and remind them of the value we have to offer.
Sometime this year there will be a lucky draw of the first 100 people to submit a story and the winner will receive a prize of an Ancestry DNA kit, courtesy of our Web Manager who is keen to see those stories start rolling in.
So, Check out the details here on our website and get writing!
