Genealogical society hosting essay contest
The Walworth County Genealogical Society is sponsoring an essay contest in conjunction with its Family History Fair to be held Oct. 12 at Faith Christian School in Williams Bay.
The contest is open to all children in sixth, seventh and eighth grades living in Walworth County. The topic is "My Favorite Ancestor." Children can write about someone living or dead; adoptive and foster parents and other family members are also to be considered as ancestors.
All schools in Walworth County, as well as libraries in the Lakeshore System, have the essay forms for the contest. The deadline is Friday, Sept. 27. Winners will be announced at the Family History Fair on Saturday, Oct. 12.
