Viewing old family photos brings up nostalgic memories. Whether it’s a wedding, a picnic in the park or goofing around at home, it’s important to preserve those family moments.
We have wonderful old photos from our ancestors, yet it’s also important to document our lives and cherish today's family gatherings and events.
However, it can be difficult encouraging the kids and and the entire family together to sit for a portrait. That’s why - as part of our “Treasure Family Photos” global initiative - we are offering tips to save and share your family story.
We’re delighted to announce the launch of our global “Treasure Family Photos” initiative to help you uncover new information about your family history through photos and preserve them online.
August marks the start of our ongoing campaign, which will offer exciting activities and competitions. Read on for details.
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). Any images of under-18s must be cleared for usage with their parent(s) or guardian(s). Three winners will be chosen from all entries received, and will each receive a free MyHeritage annual data subscription for 12 months. Winners will be notified using their original mode of entry and we will make every practical or best-faith effort to contact them. See the full terms and conditions here.
