Competition: The largest family photo

Last week we asked you to send in your oldest family photos as part of a weekly competition to win a free photo consultation with Maureen Taylor, the Photo Detective. This week, we would like to see your photos with the largest number of family members.

We also want to thank everyone who submitted beautiful images showcasing their family history. We received hundreds of photos from around the world, dating back to the 1850s!

Eunice Baldwin Whedon (b. 1778, d. 1854)

Congratulations to Janice Moerschel who sent in this photo of  her relative Eunice Baldwin Whedon from Branford, New Haven, Connecticut. You can see her photo consultation with Maureen Taylor here.

It was difficult to choose a winner from the photos submitted. View all the entries on our Pinterest board here.

However, the competition isn't over. This week, we're giving one lucky winner a chance to win another free photo consultation with Maureen. Continue reading "Competition: The largest family photo" »

Photo of the Week: Guess who?

Are you recognizable in your childhood photos?

At MyHeritage, we want to challenge you. Can you guess the identity of famous celebrities from their childhood photos?

On a weekly basis, we'll share a celebrity photo, offer a few clues, and see if you can identify the person.

Can you guess who this is?

Here are a few clues:

  • This person has been an actor, businessman and politician.
  • This person chose bodybuilding as a career at age 14.
  • This person made their American TV debut alongside Lucille Ball.

Think you know the answer? Leave a comment below. You can also ask for more clues that have yes or no answers.

Good luck!

The MyHeritage Halloween Family Photo Competition

MyHeritage is looking for the most creative and original Halloween Family photos. Take part and win one of three one-year Premium subscriptions at MyHeritage.com.

Everyone has, we are sure, seen those piles of pumpkins in every supermarket heralding the news that Halloween is just around the corner.

We haven’t had a competition for a while now so, of corpse (sorry), we decided to dust the cobwebs from three free premium subscriptions for one year and put them up for grabs in the MyHeritage Halloween Family Photo Competition!

Share your best Halloween family picture with us, or that old Halloween picture lurking in your photo album.

The rules are simple: upload your photo* to our Facebook Page or send them via Twitter using the hashtag #myheritagehalloweenpics (we recommend you use yfrog.com or twitgoo.com for this). If you do not have a Facebook or Twitter account you can send us your picture to marketing@myheritage.com.

We will be looking for the most ghoulish, wacky and creative photos our community has to offer. Remember, we’re all about family here at MyHeritage, so if your whole family is getting involved, we’d like to see some photo evidence of that!

Entries close at noon on the day after Halloween (1 November 2011), so you’d better get snapping now, if you’d like to get your hands on a one year free premium subscription!

Don’t get too spooked.

The MyHeritage Team.

It’s the Holidays … Say CHEESE!

Holiday Slideshow

The winter holidays are a unique time of year. Families reunite from across the globe in celebration. It is a time to share, to give, and to recant the year past. For some it is stuffed with spiritual overtones and practice, to others, holidays are a time to imbibe the rituals of seasonal culture. So whether you dress your pine tree with family heirlooms and strands of lights, or eat Latkes in cohort and light the nightly Menorah, or simply pass neatly wrapped packages triumphant with ribbon, it is a time to revel in the good spirit, sing festive songs, and tip a glass to a season that has become a universal holiday.
