Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society is pleased to announce the winners of its Second Annual Family History Writing Contest.
  • The Indomitable David Conger Abbott by Jim Walton (Sacramento, California)
  • Thomas Thompson Shaffner: A Pioneer Story by Martha Teeter (Davis, California)
  • Pushing Up Daisies by Kim Chambers (Townsville, Queensland, Australia)
The purpose of the contest was to foster interest in telling the stories relating the experiences of your family. Root Cellar accepted factual articles about family or local history, character sketches, or memoirs. The contest was open to members and non–members alike.  Again this year, we have had submissions from across the nation, as well as overseas.  All of the winners are non-Root Cellar members.

Prizes included a one-year membership to World Explorer, Family Tree Maker 2012 software, a one-year membership to Fold3, admissions to Root Cellar’s Spring Seminar and society memberships.

Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society thanks and Fold3 for their generous prize donations.

The stories will be published in the Root Cellar periodical Preserves, with the author's permission.  If you have any questions, please contact the Preserves Editor.
