Throughout 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.
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.
