Where has the year gone?
Supermarkets in the US are jammed with shoppers looking for that perfect turkey and gathering all the ingredients for side dishes and traditional desserts.
There are only a few days left until entire neighborhoods and apartment buildings are filled with the fragrance of roasting turkeys.
The MyHeritage team encourages everyone to record this holiday - and all family holidays, of course - in photographs for posterity. To help this project along, we’re giving away two Premium subscriptions for the best photo in each of two categories: Old family photos of Thanksgiving past and contemporary photos of this year’s festivities.
Send in your historic photos and make sure to assign someone (you'll be too busy with Mr. Turkey) to take photos of this year’s dinner. Post them to our Facebook wall and Tweet us your photos @MyHeritage using the hash tag #mythanksgiving . The team will take a look at the submissions – after we finish our own holiday meal and recover from all that tryptophan – and choose the winners.
If you have the details, add the year and place the photo was taken. The family surname would be a nice addition. For example: "@MyHeritage The Green Family Thanksgiving: Boston, Massachusetts; 1972. #mythanksgiving"
Travel safely if you are driving long distances for the holiday weekend. Have a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Enjoy being with those you love.
Remember to take photos of this year’s dinner guests and send them in to us. You might just win one of the Premium subscriptions.
