This year's Harry Batchelor Prize for the best article in our magazine Kith & Kin 2018-2019 was awarded to Rachel Andrews for "The Linskill Family". Rachel is the cousin of Paul Cope, last year's winner. Literary and researching skills clearly run in the family!
Mary Heyes was Highly Commended for “Tracing my Ancestry” and Christine Hancock was Commended for “Where are you going?"
