#genealogyselfie – And the Winner is ….

winner trophy gold cup 250Throughout April we ran the #genealogyselfie competition.  The idea was simply to take a selfie of yourself with something genealogy related in the background such as a place that is relevant to your family history, or you at an archives office or genie society, or you with documents or photographs etc. and then share your #genealogyselfie with us via social media to be in the draw to win both a slide scanner and a video converter which have been generously dontaed by Kaiser Baas.

So on the 31st of March the competiton was announced, and the idea took off, and was helped along by the big wonderful world of social media, as well as geneablogger Randy Seaver making it one of his Saturday Night Genealogy Fun activities … (thankyou Randy).

As a result we’ve had a bunch of entries, and the folk at Kaiser Baas have chosen the winner ….

Congratulations to ANDREA LISTER of the Absolutely Literate blog.

She shared her photo with us on Facebook, but also blogged about it! Andrea submitted the photo below, and says that this is her “wow you look like your 2nd Great Grandmother” in British Columbia photo.
