We are pleased to announce the winners of the 2009 GENEii Family History Writers Contest. The GENEii contest for 2009, as in previous years, received many varied and wonderful tales of both family history and memoir. Some were scholarly, some delightfully amusing, others very touching.

2nd Prize M. Kay Nanian of Novi, MI, for "The Pasha" ($100).
