Kevin McAnulty Award

The Kevin McAnulty Award is for a published Family History.

 

Purpose

This award is to encourage members to publish their family histories, to foster scholarly publications and to deposit a copy of completed works in the NZSG Library. The publication may be in the form of a hard copy book, an optical disc or an e-book.  Any family history donated to the NZSG Library within the past calendar year will be evaluated.

 

Criteria

The donor must be the author.  The family which is the subject of the family history must be related to the author. The author must be a financial member of the NZSG at the time of selection and have been a member at the time of publication.            

If the publication is co-authored, one of the authors must be a financial member of the NZSG at the time of selection and have been a member at the time of publication.

On the recommendation of an Evaluation Panel, more than one publication (any number of books) may be selected for an award in any one year as long as they meet the award criteria.
