Holiday Contest Finalists


This Holiday season, we asked our users around the world to tell about their hopes and wishes for the coming year. Here are some of the touching dreams that they’ve shared with us.

Vote for your favorite entry by commenting on the post with the number that you like best.

1) Serge Jasoigne – France
I would like to embrace all the people that I love and to tell them how much they mean to me.

2) Erina Williams – New Zealand
My wish is for my family to have LOVE toward each other.  In the last five years, we have had three significant deaths in my family. I’d like us to LOVE ❤️ one another, appreciate the good, and be forgiving and accepting of one another.


3) Linda Lanteigne – France
I want to wish happy holidays to my great mom, and my hope is that she will still be with us next year. She is now 103 years old!

4) Lisette Laforge – France
I wish health for my whole family and for myself to be healthy again as well.



5) Martha Schmidt – Holland
I recently discovered that my father who raised me is not my biological father. I hope that in the coming year I can solve this great mystery through MyHeritage.


6) Roger Peterson – USA
My wish is to break through the “brick wall” on my mother’s ancestry.



7) Donna Morrison – USA
I would love to take a trip to Scotland and England so that we would be able to see our family castle and to spend time with my three sisters.

8) Grace Elizabeth – USA
All I want for the coming year is to spend time with my family. My spouse and kids are in India, and I am in New Castle, Indiana, where I teach nursing at a local community college. I miss my family.


9) Camilla Lystager – Denmark
My wish is to find out where my family comes from!


10) Suzanne Martel – France
My wish for my family (All of my 13 brothers and sisters and their families!) – is health, that’s for sure! And for myself – I hope that my children find their own paths.

11) Leandro Cossul – Brazil
Wishing a long and successful life to my first nephew! I also want to take the opportunity to thank MyHeritage for everything that they offer families!
