How to Enter

You can enter 2 ways. This also means you can enter twice to increase your chances of winning:

  1. ‘Like’ us on Facebook (in the right-sidebar, or on the left sidebar of our Facebook page), and share this giveaway as your status (copy/paste this link: with a status that encourages people to join the giveaway, like “checkout the giveaway on this awesome website I follow” or “this cool website I follow has a drawing for some great family and genealogy tools.” Then set the status privacy to “Everyone” as shown in the image below.
  2. Follow us on twitter (@ldslifehacker), then tweet about this giveaway, using the same link and style of message, as in #1.
  3. Once you’ve done either, or both, comment below with either “1”, “2” or “1 & 2.” And tell us how you’ll use the prizes!

If you’re already following us on either Facebook or Twitter, just skip the like/follow part and do the status/tweet.

Set the status privacy to "Everyone"

If you put 1 & 2, you’ll have 2 chances to win. All entries (including the comment) are due by midnight on Wed. Feb. 16th. Winners will be announced the following Mon. MLH authors and their immediate family members cannot enter the drawing, guest authors can.

Another Chance to Win a Family Site or DIY

I’m co-presenting at RootsTech with Penney Devy who is a Manager of tools and technology at FamilySearch. If you attend RootsTech, and come to our presentation (3pm on Thurs, class TU041, room 355A), I’ll tell you how to enter a separate drawing for 6-months free of a FiddlerStudios family website, plus how to build your own family communication site, just like the ones that FiddlerStudios (my company) offers. If you can’t make it to RootsTech, don’t worry, I’ll post the material from my presentation on MLH, so you can still build your own super-powered family communication website.

A very special thanks to the companies and individuals who are contributing the prizes!

    1! I'll use the prizes to make really neat family history illustrations for my family and advertise the cool RootsTech stuff that's available out there to my less-than-tech-savvy (not all of them) ward members!

  2. Greg says:

    Did both 1 & 2, good luck to you. Sorry I missed the presentation at Rootstech, would have attended that session if I would have known. Probably the most diverse crowd I have ever been in at a conference.

  3. Shannon Morris says:

    Love the site, love the tools, love genealogy. Thanks!

    Me – I did #1. Have a bunch of family that may or may not participate but we will give them a chance. For me, I'm going to use the prizes to really get my family excited about doing a living history!

  5. I did 1 and 2. I’m the only member in my family, so needless to say, I’ve got a lot of work to do. These products would go along way to helping me discover more of my family’s past as well as to do the work for them. Records in my family have generally been destroyed or forgotten for generations, but it would be great to have the best tools available to dig in and see what I can find.
