RootsTech London 2019 Competition Closes and Winner Selected!

LondonBadges_1200x717pxAmbassadorAs 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.

The RootsTech website, for more information can be found HERE and the schedule is also available HERE.

Once again, thanks everyone for entering and sharing their surname queries.
