Prizes will be offered, including the previously mentioned RootsTech 2012 Conference registration and a one-year ISGS membership. A small prize will also be awarded to entrants randomly each day until June 30, 2011. Before preparing your entry, please visit the FamilySearch.orgResearch Wiki page for Illinois to find out what entries already exist.
There are two ways you can enter the contest:

You can contribute as many articles as you want but please use only one article per entry form.
2. Contribute a hyperlink to a specific Illinois genealogy-related resource such as an online index, database, repository or the like. You can contribute as many hyperlinks as you want but please use only one hyperlink per entry form.
