One of the most common questions about the ISGS website seems to be: Who are those people in the photos at the top of the page?
The photo above and all the photos you see in the header of the ISGS Website were winners in our 2011 ISGS Ancestor Photo contest. ISGS is happy to announce the 2012 ISGS Ancestor Photo Contest and asks this question: wouldn't it be great to see your own ancestors' photos up there?
Between now and May 31, 2012, ISGS is asking members to submit photos of their own ancestors for use on the ISGS website. If your photo is selected, it will be displayed on a rotating-basis in the top banner of the ISGS website along with other member-submitted photos. You can view all the 2011 winners at http://ilgensoc.org/cpage.php?pt=156.
Not only will you be credited with the photo submission, but you'll also be able to provide a brief biography of the person or persons in the photo.
Visit the 2012 ISGS Ancestor Photo Contest page at http://ilgensoc.org/cpage.php?pt=71 and use the entry form to submit your photos. Or go to http://ilgensoc.org/upload/menu/ISGS_Photo_Release.pdf (opens in Adobe Reader) to print out the form and submit your ancestor photos today!
NOTE: You must be a member of ISGS to participate in the 2012 Ancestor Photo Contest.
