Do you know your ancestry? Mother’s Day is the perfect time to connect with your family and your roots.
Imagine connecting with a cousin for the first time or learning that you’re descended from a U.S. President. It’s important to learn about your family history, so A Place for Mom is partnering with Ancestry.com, the world’s largest online family history resource, to help you connect with your roots this Mother’s Day.
Share with us why you believe it’s important to learn about your family’s history and how you will make genealogy an intergenerational activity in your family, by May 11, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PST, in order to be entered for a chance to win a 1-year membership ($300 value) to Ancestry.com.
The membership will allow you to connect with more than 13 billion historical records and look at 60 million member family trees, to help you start building your own.
Not everyone can win the membership, but we will be featuring your reasons on why it’s important to connect with your ancestry on a blog that will be published May 12, 2014.
Stories can be shared below, or through our Facebook page under “Mother’s Day Sweepstakes.”
We wish you the best of luck and can’t wait to read your stories!
