How the test works

Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

The story of my family begins with my family tree. Using some personal documents I have written the dates of birth of my relatives and also their death dates. I have managed to get to 1840. Now I need to search for more information in church registries (in order) to discover my ancestors going back seven and eight generations. It is not an easy task, because I can only count on the men (in order) to see the ancestral lineage.

I'll be right with you...
