Alexander Henderson Award
The Australian Institute of Genealogical Studies, based in Blackburn, Victoria have recently announced that their annual Alexander Henderson Award is open for submissions again this year. If you have written a family history or Australian historical biography and you fit the conditions of entry, consider a nomination. Your entry will be kept by AIGS and will form part of their collection so that other family history researchers will be able to access it in the future. Submissions close November 30.
Further details and a list of previous submissions can be found on the AIGS site.
