Nominations Now Being Accepted -- The Family History Writing Contest (NGS)


Nominations Now Being Accepted -- The Family History Writing Contest (NGS)

This post continues a periodic series where we, at NGS, highlight the various competitions (15 December deadline) and awards (31 January) where nominations are sought in order to recognize excellence. The winners will be announced at the annual NGS Family History Conference, 10-13 May 2017.

Sixth up is the Family History Writing Contest.

Deadline for Submissions—15 December Annually

To encourage members to write a family history that covers at least three generations and not more than four.

Prize
·         The person who compiles the most outstanding family history will receive an expense-paid trip to the next NGS Family History Conference. The benefits include travel to and from the conference, hotel accommodations, conference registration fee, and a complimentary banquet ticket.
·         Manuscripts meeting the requirements will be submitted to the editors of the National Genealogical Society Quarterly (NGSQ) for consideration and will be placed in the NGS Library.

Criteria
·         The Family History Writing Contest is open to all NGS members.
·         Contest judges, NGS officers, NGS directors, NGS staff, their family members, and former contest winners are not eligible to enter the contest. The NGS contest, like most others in the field, is not open to fellows of the American Society of Genealogists, who are elected to that rank on the basis of extensive and exemplary scholarship.
·         A paper with multiple authors will be accepted if it meets the requirements of the contest. If a winning paper has multiple authors, the prize will be awarded to the lead author.

Requirements
·         Manuscript Length: Between 4,000 and 10,000 words
·         Number of Generations: 3 to 4 generations
·         Originality: not previously published and not submitted elsewhere for publication;
·         Documentation: individual, specific citations (footnote form) for every statement of fact that is not public knowledge
·         Appearance: 11- or 12-point type, 1" margins, laser-quality print
·         Numbering system: NGSQ

Manuscript Length

The manuscript must be between 4,000 and 10,000 words, including the title, text, and footnotes. However, the title that appears as a running head on each page is counted only on the first page. Illustrations, maps, and photographs essential to the story may be used, but any captions should be included in the word count.

Number of Generations

The genealogy must cover at least three generations and not more than four, all descending lines, including female lines. The chosen progenitor and spouse will be the first generation. All their children, with spouse(s), constitute the second generation. All grandchildren, with spouse(s), constitute the third generation. It is not necessary to list the children in the fourth generation, but a contestant may do so. However, it is necessary to fully develop only three nuclear families: the progenitor, one of his/her children, and one of his/her grandchildren.

The family you select to write about must span at least three generations and may span any period of American history. The progenitor may have been born elsewhere, but he or she must have actually lived in colonial America or the United States. The second and third generations must also have lived in colonial America or the United States. The writer and his or her siblings or spouses may not be included as a member of the third generation.

Originality

A genealogy should not be entered in this contest if it has been submitted or will be submitted for publication before the contest ends, or if it has been evaluated by the Board for Certification of Genealogists (BCG). However, a genealogy may be submitted simultaneously to the NGS contest and the BCG provided it is cleared with both organizations first. If the family the contestant chooses has already been included in a published genealogy or article, it may be submitted here only if (1) the published source contained no more than the name, spouse, and their vital dates, or (2) the previously published work contained so many errors, a new genealogy is required to correct the mistakes. If an article alone would be sufficient to correct the errors, that family would not be a wise choice for the contest. In case of doubt, contact the contest chair

Documentation

Any fact stated that is not common knowledge must be documented. The clichés primary source and secondary source no longer meet modern standards of genealogical research and evidence analysis. As all genealogists know, (a) any source can offer both primary and secondary information, (b) original sources can contain secondary (secondhand) information, and (c) derivative sources can include primary (firsthand) information.

Sources

Original Source: the person or record whose information did not come from data already spoken or written. The original is the most authoritative source. Often, however, it no longer survives or its preservation dictates that it be examined only as an image copy (microfilm, digitized image, and so on).

Derivative Source: a person or record supplying information that is repeated, reproduced, transcribed, abstracted, or summarized from something already spoken or written. Because every repetition or recopying of data is an opportunity for error, the closer the derivative is to the original the more reliable the data are likely to be.

Information

Primary Information: data contributed by a knowledgeable eyewitness to or participant in the event that is the subject of the record or by an official whose duties included making a full, accurate record of it. Primary information is further evaluated by
·         how close in time and place to the event the record was created,
·         how involved in the event the eyewitness was (participant versus bystander, for example),
·         the age and sanity of the eyewitness and consequent extent of his/her understanding of the event's significance and details, and     
·         any bias on the official's or eyewitness's part that might have affected the account.

Secondary Information: data supplied by a person who recorded it after hearing of the event or its details from someone else. It is judged according to
·         the probable number of times the story was passed along orally before it was written down,
·         the reputation of the secondary informant for reliability, and
·         the existence of any potential for bias on the part of the secondary informant.

Appearance
The manuscript should be printed on a letter-quality printer with one-inch margins all around. Use 11- or 12-point font size. The title of the genealogy and page number must appear on each page. Notes and references should appear as footnotes at the bottom of the page to which they apply.

Format
Use the format established by the NGSQ. Contest entrants are strongly urged to read papers written by recent contest winners, usually found in the December issues of the NGSQ. The 2007 winner, "A Family for Suzanne" by Ruth Randall, is available here for you to read.

"A Family for Suzanne" (PDF 941KB)

Evaluation
The criteria for excellence in a paper rely heavily on how you demonstrate your research skills. You must show the ability to use and analyze a wide variety of original documents. It should not be just the summarization of the work of others. Tell a story, place your family in historical context, but make sure the historical aspect is really relevant to your family and make if brief. The emphasis should be on the original research you did to create the family history.

Results
If an entry should not meet all requirements, the manuscript will be returned with an explanation. All other contestants will receive comments on their entries after a winner has been selected by the judges.

Mailing Instructions
Prepare a cover sheet containing your name, full address, telephone number, and NGS membership number. Include the title of the manuscript, number of words, and the year of the contest. This sheet will be removed before submission to the judges, so there should be an inside title page without the personal information contained on the cover sheet. Package your entry, including the cover sheet and the manuscript with all pages in order. Don’t bind or staple the sheets because they must be photocopied. If you want to be notified that the manuscript has been received, enclose a self-addressed stamped postcard. As a precaution, place cardboard or poster board on top and bottom of the entry before packaging it. To ensure safe arrival, use a sturdy envelope.

Thanksgiving Traditions

Source: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Thanksgiving_postcard_circa_1910.JPG 

Thanksgiving Traditions

As Kimberly Powell states in her post Top 5 Family Thanksgiving Traditions, “Traditions are a big part of the Thanksgiving holiday, and every American family has their own way of celebrating. From stuff the turkey to taking in a football game …”

Such traditions are part of our heritage.  Many of what have become your family’s traditions probably reflect traditional practices that you and/or a spouse grew up with or new traditions created for your new family.

I can tell you that on Thanksgiving my family always has turkey with stuffing (no giblets), mashed potatoes, rolls, cranberry sauce (served from a can and in slices) 5 cup salad, a vegetable, and pumpkin pie with cool whip topping just like I always had growing up. After living in the south for many years we added sweet potatoes prepared with brown sugar, marshmallow crème, and spices as a requirement. 

Since my mother was born in the UK, we’ve also been known to have Christmas Crackers at Thanksgiving, though more often at Christmas and New Years Eve festivities.

I grew up watching the Macy’s day parade and we have continued to do that, though now afterwards we watch The National Dog Show after my children fell in love with it many years ago.

Some families have traditions of sharing Thanksgiving with parents, siblings, etc.  We’ve always lived far enough away from family to not make that practical, although it is a beloved tradition for many.


What are your Thanksgiving traditions?  

Are they the traditions of your parents or your grandparents?

Maybe you have traditions with deeper historic roots.  We would love to hear about your Thanksgiving traditions and whether they are family traditions or new traditions.
