ANNOUNCING: THE SHORT LIST

Hey Saskatchewaners (near and far, wherever you happen to be now), it’s time to reveal the SHORT LIST of genealogy contest winners.

***

Thank you, thank you, thank you

But first let me say how grateful I am to everyone for their help with this contest. As you can imagine, doing anything for the first time can be a bit nerve-wracking, and it’s even more intense when it’s done in the public view, like this is. I’d like to take the time to thank:

  • The members of the Saskatchewan Genealogy Society, plus the members of the BC Genealogical Society
  • The members of my Facebook group Genealogy for Asian Canadians, plus the members of Canadian Genealogy, Canada Genealogy Research Community, and Genealogy a la carte
  • My friends, family, and clients – without you, this would be not only literally impossible, but also not a lot of fun

***

To everyone who submitted an entry: I was absolutely blown away by your contest entries. You wrote in with your wickedly funny family stories, or with your family histories, or with copies of your genealogy documents. I really want to do every single last one of your stories. I really, really do. But… I can only choose one. And I’m getting closer…

Today, I would like to reveal the short list of contest entry winners.

The short list

Congratulations to:

  • Kelly Bode
  • Agnes Bourassa
  • Rhonda Cooper
  • Lynn Heartwell Galbraith

In the next two weeks, I’ll be doing preliminary research on these 4 family lines. The winner of the 2018 Past Presence genealogy contest will be announced on Saturday, August 11, 2018. 

Thanks, everyone!!
