A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to meet some of you at the National Genealogical Society (NGS) Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was a well organized event, with many great speakers, product release announcements, with interesting companies furthering genealogical research, developing data protection and transforming family trees into works of art. It was also a good chance to meet some of our users and those who are part of the international genealogy market. I staffed the MyHeritage booth with Daniel Horowitz, our Genealogy and Translations Manager, and we were happy with the enthusiasm shown towards our products. Together, we answered some of your questions, chatted about your family discoveries, and noted your thoughts about the strengths of our site and what users want to see as MyHeritage.com goes forward.
But the real message of this post is to congratulate the five winners of our Premium membership giveaway:
Check out Daniel’s reflections on his recent trip, West Coast talks and conferences, and the schedule for his next visit. There is additionally a post about Valerie Atkinson, an artist I met at NGS, who uses genealogy and family trees as an inspiration for her personal and commissioned work.
Congratulations to our winners and thank you for stopping by and making NGS a memorable event.
