Got a link to Culloden?

The National Trust for Scotland is running a competition to try and trace youngsters (under 18) who may have had ancestors who fought at the Battle of Culloden in 1746.

From their website -

"We are keen to trace some young people (under 18 years old) whose ancestors fought at the Battle of Culloden. Entrants should produce a family tree showing their family's involvement in the Battle - either on the Government or Jacobite side - or both. This can be hand written, presented in say a word document or provided as a print out from one of the genealogy website programmes or templates."

Winners will be asked to help the NTS open the new visitor centre at Culloden on 16 April 2008. The closing date for the competition is Wednesday 19 March 2008.
