As a RootsTech London Ambassador I have the opportunity to host a give away for the event of a complimentary three day pass (worth £149). There was no restrictions on how I choose to host the give away.
I chose to ask those who entered to do one of two things – send me something for one of my studies or comment about a surname in their own family they were curious about.
My husband, Mr G was kind enough to dip his hand into a wicker basket that had been collecting the submissions and extract the winner. The winner is Janine Long – Congratulations Janine!
In the meantime, thanks to everyone who took part. I received several Butcher references for my study and those will be added to my database and I shall be in touch via email as I want to reference those researches as the source of the information. It was very interesting to read the comments and the surnames, so much so that I have decided that I am going to respond to those comments via this blog so please keep reading!
RootsTech London will take place 24-26 October 2019 at the Excel Centre, London.
I shall be personally talking on Delving Deep into Migration, to and from the British Isles on Thursday.
Once again, thanks everyone for entering and sharing their surname queries.
