I've been thinking about offering a contest over at Hungary Exchange for the past few months, and now is the time! Here are the details:

What You Win:

5 FREE hours of professional research.
This includes the research & translations, and you're provided with digitized copies of all documents found as well as pedigree and family group reports that display all information found.


1. You MUST have Hungarian ancestry to be eligible (family with origins within the former Kingdom of Hungary).

2. In order to enter this contest, you must post a comment to this blog post. Within your post please leave your email address (I need to be able to contact you, if you win), and some basic details about the family that you're wishing to know more about. This includes names, dates (estimated is fine), places, etc.

The contest ends Sunday, April 14th, 2012, at 11:59pm CST. The winner will be chosen and announced here on this blog Monday, April 15th, 2012. The winner will also be contacted. If the winner does not claim their prize within five days, a new winner will be chosen.

Good luck!!


The winner has been chosen: Amy Walp

Now for an interesting twist! There will be a 2nd place & 3rd place winner! The 2nd place winner will receive 3 FREE hours of research. The 3rd place winner will receive 1 FREE hour of research.

The winner for 2nd place: Pam

The winner for 3rd place: Diane Edes

Note: All winners were chosen randomly with a 'Random Picker' for blogs specifically designed for blog contests, such as this.

Eastern European Research Workshop

I received an announcment today from Peg, Conference Administrator for the FEEFHS, about an Eastern European Research Workshop. This workshop will be held between August 6-10 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

I am not a speaker nor contributor to this workshop, I am merely passing on the word to others who may be interested. Please note that this is not a free workshop. Early-bird registration (prior to June 20th) is $139, and anything later is $159. This includes the networking reception, three-day workshop, syllabus, consultation and the closing banquet. There are single-day registrations available, also. You can find out more information at the following website:
