Vote Now for the Most Interesting Family History Picture and Story


We had a tremendous response to our “Most Interesting Family History Picture and Story” contest.  We were overwhelmed with the love and pride that people felt for their family histories.  It was a very hard job, but our panel of judges narrowed the list down to 8 pictures and stories.  Yes, originally we were going to pick only 5 but it was so hard to choose, we decided to add 3 more to the final list.

Congratulations to Will Langer, Eugene Wiese, Rick D. Harms, Helen Rigby, Sylvia Hott Sonneborn, Linda Coleman Hunt, Carole Allen, and Eleanor Erber.  They’ve all won a copy of our Personal Historian writing software and have advanced to the final round!

Now it’s your chance to decide which is the most interesting family history picture and story and to pick who will win the Flip-Pal mobile scanner and case!

This was such a delightful contest – to be able to view the photos and read through the stories about them! One could tell how much time and effort each person went through to find out about and describe the photo. Some were researched more than others – almost to the point where we felt close to the people in them. Thank you for offering this contest.

Entry #3: Christmas Tires
the best for the sweet emotional in the story

I entered this contest as well, but the story that won was by far the best story. I loved reading it, the picture had a great story behind it which proves that a picture is not worth a thousand words but that a photo creates a thousand words, the picture was cute, but came to life and gave much more meaning to strangers as we read the story behind it. Thanks for sharing, loved it!
