The Winner of the GeneaBloggers E-News Contest Is . . .

Winner

Congratulations to Kerryn Taylor, a member of GeneaBloggers from Australia and author of the Ancestor Chasing blog, who is the big winner in our GeneaBloggers E-News contest!

Here’s what Kerryn said via e-mail when she found out she was the winner:

My husband and I have a small rural general store/cafe which is open 7 days a week so I don’t get out much. I’m fairly new to geneablogging and I just love the community spirit of it.  I’ve “met” and learned a lot from so many wonderful people   It gives me a social life I otherwise wouldn’t have with the added bonus of allowing me to indulge my love of genealogy and family history. My blogspot is http://ancestorchaser.blogspot.com.au/.

I’m really looking forward to your new newsletter and  I’m sure everyone will gain a lot from it.

Thank you for running the competition which allowed me to win the  Amazon gift card. I have always wanted to buy an external hard drive to keep a back up of my computer and family history files and photos but there has never been quite enough spare cash.  Now, thanks to you and GeneaBloggers I can.

I know that there are many genealogy newsletters and e-news alerts out there, but you should know:

  • GeneaBloggers E-News is not just for members of GeneaBloggers or for bloggers or “techies.”  Everyone in the genealogy community will find something they can use to help with their own research.
  • You can unsubscribe at any time. GeneaBloggers E-News will be using MailChimp and its strict procedures in building an e-mail list that conforms with standard blast e-mail practices.
  • You won’t get bombarded with emails every day! There will be a regular monthly newsletter as well as periodic emails about time-sensitive offers and issues, such as saving public access to the Georgia State Archives.

Please feel free to ask me any questions about the GeneaBloggers E-News by emailing me at geneabloggers@gmail.com.
