Who is the most interesting person in your family tree? To enter our competition all you have to do is write an article of no more than 1000 words about your most interesting ancestor and send it to us.
Perhaps you have discovered a famous Olympic Medalist, WW2 Hero, film star or TV presenter in your family? More likely great-grandparents who struggled to bring up a family of ten kids against all the odds. Or are you descended from an immigrant family with your ancestors spread all around the world ? Or maybe all three?
