Send your most creative and original Halloween family photos and we'll choose three winners to receive a one-year MyHeritage annual data subscription, providing full access to all family history records in our database.
As Halloween approaches and you've started to think about costumes, don't forget to take a photo, or send us an old photo from a Halloween past!
The rules are simple: Upload your photo* to our Facebook Page or Tweet to @MyHeritage using the hashtag #myheritagehalloween. Don't have a Facebook or Twitter account? Email your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll be looking for the most ghoulish, wacky and creative photos. Remember, we’re all about family here at MyHeritage, so we'd like to see your whole family getting involved. Check out these photos from last year.
Entries close at noon (in your country of submission) on Friday, November 2, 2012, so you’d better get snapping now, if you’d like to get your hands on a one-year MyHeritage annual data subscription!
Don’t get too spooked.
The MyHeritage Team.
*We kindly request that all photos be of a reasonable resolution (96dpi at least) and that the submission is your own original work (and not infringing any copyright laws).

Searching for family involves using every tool available. Sometimes, there’s also a bit of divine intervention.
In Texas, Christy Landry and her family were going through a difficult period in March. Her husband, John, went to church and asked for a prayer for his family. The pastor told him that God would heal their family. They didn’t know how soon!
Christy shared their family story with MyHeritage.
She’ll never forget Monday, March 19. She was at the computer beginning the long process of doing their family tree (again), this time on MyHeritage.com.
I was going to redo the entire thing - this time with resources, evidence, and total assurance that I had it right. I began, like anyone else, by adding my name first, then my husband’s, our son and my husband’s father. I was about to add my parents when I saw the first SmartMatch. ’What’s this?’ I thought, as I clicked on it.
John (she calls him JJ) and Christy married in 2011 after being together for eight years. Born in Texas, she was raised near her entire extended family. A very tight-knit family, her parents’ home was the center for holidays and often some 30-60 people gathered there.
