Some of you have been patiently awaiting the results of our “Most Interesting Family History Picture and Story” contest. We apologize for the delay. We had to contact each of the winners and then, frankly, we got so caught-up in other things that we forgot to tell you, our blog readers, who won.
We started out with hundreds of pictures and stories submitted by you. Then our panel of judges narrowed the list down to 8 pictures and stories. If you’d like to see the finalists and read their stories, click on any of the pictures below:
We then allowed you to vote on which picture and story you felt was the most interesting. We’re pleased to announce that the entry with the most votes was “Christmas Tires” by Rick D. Harms! Congratulations to Rick as he is now the owner of a brand-new Flip-Pal mobile scanner. Rick and all the other finalists have also won a copy of our Personal Historian 2 writing software.
Again, a big thank you to all of you took the time to share your precious family pictures and stories with us. We were overwhelmed with the love and pride that people felt for their family histories. They provided us with hours of entertainment and encouragement and made us thankful that we are able to help, in some small part, to the preservation and sharing of these priceless histories.
