    I would like to become a better user of My Heritage and connect with others in the family history community.

    Genealogy for me it’s a passion, archiving the old photos was a way to give life again to my ancestors in this new digital world for the next generations. The war in my country syria make me feel responsibility to documentate my family history and many others families, especially after moving to Canada.
    i have a project in the future a book about the role of Christians families in Aleppo during 18, 19, and 20 century in differents sectors of life.

    Let’s find out whether winning tickets for the show is something which is in your DNA. Or is luck not something which is in your DNA? Let’s see how Prof. Yaniv Erlich thinks about that, he’ll be anyway in Amsterdam.

    My personal heritage is in Denmark and Sweden primarily and I am enjoying the reach MyHeritage has within these two locations, not to mention the world-wide reach. I am learning more and more each day and enjoy gaining all the knowledge I am able too.

    Lucky winner My Heritage genealogy conference and visiting Amsterdam. Being at a My Heritage conference would give the winner new ideas, new information and a chance to increase their genealogical skills and their family tree using knowledge about DNA research.

    I would be excited to attend the My Heritage Conference because I have ancestors from all over Europe and would be interested to know more about what I can do with my DNA results to help extend my family line further back and forward. Plus, Amsterdam is a beautiful city, and I applaud your choice of venue. Looking forward to the event. Thank you.

    On May 10, 2018 I discovered that I was the biological father of a 38 year old female conceived as a result of Dr. Cecil Jacobson having used my sperm without my consent for a female patient other than my wife. Our adopted daughter did post doctoral research at the University of Leiden and her boy friend received his PhD from Leiden and is now at Gronengin as a professor. Our daughter is now at Oxford and we are dying to visit Europe plus I would love to gather with others who have gotten wonderful surprises from DNA analysis! I would love to share my story.

    It would be a dream come true for me to be able to attend such an interesting conference. I’ve been into My Heritage for a while & it has brought me so much closer to my family’s genealogy. A trip back to my homecity – where it all started – combined with this event, that just absolutely would be amazing! ❤

    March 11, 2019

    Attending MyHeritage LIVE 2019 would be a fabulous educational opportunity for me! I love genealogy conferences and I’m always looking to expand my horizons. What new DNA tools might we learn about? What will we discover about a previously unknown archive, or newly digitized records? I would love to attend MyHeritage LIVE 2019 in Amsterdam.

  • Karen


    March 11, 2019

    The short answer why I want to go is that I am obsessively hooked on genealogy!!

    March 12, 2019

    I’d love to see a little of Holland, but more importantly I really enjoyed the presentations I was able to stream last time and it looked and sounded like it would be so amazing to be with like minded people. I learned a lot from a distance and wonder how much more I would get in person. Thanks for the chance to attend.

  • Howard Brydle

    I have been to Salt Lake City, and to local Finding Your Roots conferences. Now I think it is time to go to a bigger venue, and learn some more about researching European roots.

  • Kathleen Norris


    March 12, 2019

    I’d love to attend MyHeritage Live to learn from professionals in the Genealogy field. It would be a privilege to be able to visit a historic city to be able to learn more from the very best on all aspects- methodology, DNA, etc.- of Genealogy. It is an amazing opportunity that I would not take for granted.

  • Michele


    March 12, 2019

    It would be a great experience to learn from professional presenters & other researchers in the field. And I have family in Amsterdam who are part of the MyHeritage community. We could meet up for the 1st time at the Conference & explore our family stories & roots

  • Monica Van Langendonck

    Beautiful Amsterdam, city where my parents, their parents and many other ancestors were born. My Heritage is the first company I tested my DNA with and I want to learn so much more about my family’s history. It would be wonderful to attend lectures to learn from the experts and to walk the same streets my ancestors walked.

    Several years ago, I had a dream that has stayed with me. In the dream I found myself within the walls of an old, historical library that had a beautiful architectural design and quite antiquated.
    As I observed my surroundings, I seemed to be the only patron inside the facility.
    I looked up and down at the several shelves and display of books. I marveled at the height and width of wood shelving with ornate finishings.
    I noticed a light, not a bright light but a soft, subtle glow just in front of where I stood.
    I walked slowly towards the direction of light. As I looked up, I saw a woman bent over a large book, she was wearing round spectacles resting on the bridge of her nose, her white hair was tied in a bun and her bright, blue eyes looked up and directly at me!
    She smiled and I felt I knew her yet I had not seen her photo or recognized her face. I felt a deeper connection and longing to become acquainted.
    I woke from my dream and wondered at the meaning and the impressions left upon me. I was curious yet unable to understand the meaning of this dream.
    My father born in Amsterdam, Holland in 1942 immigrated to the United Statesin his late teenage years. He has not shared his heritage nor do I have a relationship with him. His parents & sister were the only family members to immigrate to the United States as his father sought to own his own pastry bakery and felt to expand his opportunities in a foreign land.
    I lost a 22 year old son,death by suicide in 2014. After his death, I became drawn to family history and realized my tree was not filled on my fathers side. I have been slowly learning more about genealogy work & I have the opportunity to teach youth the basics of family history research. I volunteer at a small genealogy center near my home for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I which I am an active member and desire to serve others since I know the church I belong to brought my grandparents & their 2 children to the country I live in and connected my mother to my father so I could be a member of ethnic groups & value where my ancestors have traveled from.
    I attended RootsTech 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah. I was so impressed that I found joy in discovering My Heritsge is hosting their own event in the location of my fathers family.
    I have only traveled to Amsterdam once in my lifetime as I was on a Baltic Sea cruise ship.

    Today, more than ever before, I am becoming very passionate about genealogy work and feel a pull to discover my ancestors and my belonging.

    I really enjoyed Oslo last year and would love to get even more knowledge and experience from MyHeritage workshops and as important get more networking done with other MyHeritage members. And getting a free ticket will make my budget and travel possible.

  • Gladys M. Frederick


    March 12, 2019

    I’ve just gotten started on this and ,admittedly, don’t know what I’m doing.I’d love to go on this trip to start learning.
    I saw my first ‘My Heritage’ example on the Dr. Phil show and became interested.

    March 12, 2019

    I’d like to attend MyHeritage LIVE to be able to get the most out of MyHeritage subscription.
    I can’t afford to but a ticket though…
    I’d be happy to share my 2nd ticket with some other reseacher if I win (!).

  • Jitske Bergman


    March 13, 2019

    Getting excited by genealogy some years ago, the hobby was interrupted by work and family. The slow going on my Dutch roots was not helped by living in Tampa which was most discouraging until I found Dutch Genealogy on FaceBook. I have been storing their many hints and can’t wait to get my notes, forms and little slips of paper organized on My Heritage. Oh how great it would be to walk where my (Friesian) grandparents walked before their deaths in 1976 in Amsterdam after having lived their since abt 1920.

  • Cathryn


    March 13, 2019

    I have been utilizing MyHeritage for over a decade. It has assisted greatly with my research. It inspired me to undertake formal study in Family History. I am a huge fan of MyHeritage in Australia and would love to meet some of the team and other users. I would like to workl for MyHeritage here in Australia!

  • Corinne Braun


    March 13, 2019

    I’m new to actively using MyHeritage (though not new to genealogy).
    This sounds like a great opportunity to become more comfortable with your complicated but feature packed site!
    Plus, a great opportunity to network with cousins from around the world – most of mine are in Europe or Israel.

  • Fredrik Drugge


    March 13, 2019

    Me and my wife really want to learn more about how to be able to explore the unknown relatives and especially regarding DNA research.

    March 14, 2019

    My story has no beginning nor end. I feel let alone building a tree I can’t even find the leaves, I have been to Amsterdam a few times so it’s not about travel , it’s to fathom this story out properly. I am married & live in Phoenix Arizona , I’m Born and raised in South Africa , and was the eldest of 7 children , and knew I was from another father and somewhat accepted that and the name I was told through life. A few years ago I did a DNA and my strongest match was a lady a lot younger than me from Perth , we connected and discovered we shared similarities as we chat from time to time. She mentioned she was aboriginal and was looking for her father too , who we assume is the same man. I have tried to get as much info as I could from my mom who was aging and living in SA , but she just didn’t have much more for me , now I have no ways of ever knowing the truth as she passed a month ago . So I’m left with a half sister who also has an aging mom whose description is different to my moms.

    I want to go to better understand DNA genealogy and genealogy service provided by MyHeritage. My goal is to reveal my family ancestors and roots as much as possible from the hidden past..

  • Historie a památka


    March 14, 2019

    Zajímám se již delší dobu o sestavení svého a rodinného rodokmenu, rád bych znal historii a prapředky našeho rodu. Někam jsem sice dospěl, ale mé laické zkušenosti a znalosti jsou žel omezené, proto bych se chtěl v tomto směru dál vzdělávat, dostat se někam dál, něco nového se naučit. Můj cíl je dotáhnout to vše až do konce. A navíc nejsme na tomto světě dlouho, a rád bych, aby moje děti měly nejen nějakou památku o historii naší rodiny, ale i aby mohly být i pyšné na to, že někdo něco, v jejich rodině poslední dobou dokázal.

    It will be a great chance to hear these lecturers, many of whom don’t make it to Israel to speak. There is nothing better than F2F interaction and connecting with new genealogy researchers.

  • Avi Kolan


    March 14, 2019

    There is always something new to learn about in this fascinating field. Amsterdam is a great location, and a visit to the Windows District (as opposed to the Android and IOS districts) is a must for all tourists. Just kidding, as my wife is looking over my shoulder as I type. 🙂

  • Steve Thomas


    March 14, 2019

    I would absolutely LOVE to go to MyHeritage LIVE because it would be wonderful to connect to and learn as much as I can about how thousands of family history enthusiasts conduct their research .
    The chance to go to Europe for the first and likely the only time in my life would also be paramount!

  • Derek Lawther


    March 14, 2019

    After many years searching I have found my paternal grandparents. One was arrested by the Gestapo as a communist and escaped to Prague and found his way to Moscow where Stalin had him shot as a German spy in the Great Terror of 1937-38. The other was arrested in late 1944 for harbouring a member of the Committee of Free Germany. She was sent to prison awaiting execution for ‘preparation for High Treason’. Six months later she was liberated by the Americans! Without MyHeritage I would not have found them and their story.

    I’m more and more drawn into the family history world. I currently host a group of 20 people who get together each month to share our findings, techniques, and help each other go further. I would like to be able to do more and think the Amsterdam conference would help me a lot.

    As a Premium member of MyHeritage
    My wish to attend this MyHeritage User Conference is, I hope to encounter some human from MyHeritage who might respond to the following.
    I made a request for support to Customer Service in January 2019. Apart from a computer generated Ticket No, I have to date, received no follow up. In February 2019, I again requested for support, again I received a computer generated Ticket No. To date no follow up.
    Please give me a “free” pair of MyHeritage LIVE tickets!

    When I discover ancestors who left everything behind to come to the New World, it encourages me. I have their blood running through my veins, so some of their courage and hopes must have come with it. I have hit many brick walls and want to know more about turning over stones.

    March 14, 2019

    I would love to go to MyHeritage LIVE! There is an energy and excitement for genealogy the big conferences like this you don’t experience in the same way when watching it virtually. I watched the 2018 conference live from home (not easy given the time difference beteeen Oslo and Seattle!) and it was amazing.

    #1 Learn how to improve and expand my family tree, especially in the ancestors.

    #2 Holland is a truly great country. I was in Amsterdam last year for about 8 hours and it was enough to want me to be sure to return, Perhaps this will be my opportunity/

  • Sam Sublett


    March 14, 2019

    I have been a My Heritage (MH) member since their beginning when they were in Salt Lake City – and have followed MH to Israel.
    Although I have had my DNA tested with 23andMe; I want to have my DNA tested and evaluated by My Heritage – because it is more comprehensive in all the world wide connections MH is pulling together.
    I have attended Genealogy Group meetings in my area – and have found the participants more interested in what I have to say about MH – rather than the scope of the intended meeting.
    It would be very rewarding and fun to attend the MH meeting/conference in Amsterdam

  • Ann Ross


    March 14, 2019

    What a Fantastic opportunity to increase a 1000fold ones knowledge of research into ones history. An added bonus will be meeting fellow enthusiasts from all over the world who are pursueing the fascinating hobby of research into ones family’s history.

    Thank you MyHeritage for offering this golden opportunity.

  • Linda Vixie

  • Carl Stephen Olsen


    March 14, 2019

    My wife and I have always enjoyed doing family history work. The really exciting thing for us is in doing temple work for others that can’t do it for themselves, and although “Family Search” is the one used by us the most, “My Heritage” is also used in that effort, because it has such a wonderful “search individuals” data base.
    Plus of course, we would love the free trip!

    My Heritage has been an excellent source of accurate information; which continues to gather more and more information on every family in various records. I have been a member for several years. The program they have developed with the consistency checker is amazing when polishing your family tree. I have been able to trace on main line back as far as 1109 and continue to find more and more bonuses. Thank you for it all.

    March 14, 2019

    Well A) Amsterdam because my heritage is half Norwegian! B) It’s the opportunity of a lifetime if you are a into genealogy but not financially able to put anything into it. For people like myself this means finding yourself stuck with many walls and roadblocks. Since my mom is the Norwegian line AND the adopted person who holds the most compelling of my mysteries and walls, it seems likely that an event of this magnitude would be pretty amazing all across the board.

  • Judith


    March 14, 2019

    Attending MyHeritage Live 2019 would allow me to attend many lectures and workshops to increase my knowledge of what MyHeritage has done over the year and what they plan on doing in the future. I also would be in a city I have never visited before and would have a chance to expand my ability to visit a country some of my ancestors came from.

  • Cooper Marcus


    March 14, 2019

    Sounds like an opportunity, but tickets to the event don’t pay the plane fare! I’m in the midst of taking over my mother’s 30-year Research into her family history including travel two countries that no longer have the documents she was looking for… There are so many more tools and Records available that weren’t back then that I would like to be able to update all of what has been passed on to me as well as find other tools and organizations that might assist in my research.

    Overall, anyone who contacts me about DNA matches, I try to help, educate and / or assist with anything that they are not understanding correctly or to help in any way I can [ other than doing the work for them]!

  • Tracy Shand


    March 14, 2019

    Last year I found my birth father through My Heritage DNA. He is Dutch and we have many relatives still alive in Holland. It would be amazing to go to the My Heritage LIVE Conference in Amsterdam to extend my knowledge about genealogy and at the same time meet my extended birth family and connect with my Dutch heritage.

  • Skeeter Ramirez


    March 14, 2019

    I would love the chance to network with other researchers and I have considered trying to start a career in the field of genealogy. This would give me the chance to discover if I could and what that might look like.
    Also, I would love to skip over to Sweden or France to research.
    Lastly, I would love to invite my fiancée with me so that we could use this as a chance for a honeymoon! <3

    I would love to go MyHeritage Live 2019 in Amsterdam! My retirement hobby has been genealogy. I have learned so much and yet still have so much more to learn.

  • Ronald Moore


    March 14, 2019

    Since becoming interested in genealogy I have found it to be a fascinating pursuit. It’s never-ending, but the further you go, the more difficult it is to chase down information. My family background is mainly Great Britain and South Africa. In both cases I have found that some branches of the family have limited information. Attending My Heritage LIVE would be great in that it would help me learn about additional resources and techniques I could be using. I would also be interested to hear about other researchers’ experiences.

  • Anastasia Olson


    March 14, 2019

    I would love to attend a genealogy conference! My recent DNA results (and that of two of my siblings) have come back with some very unexpected results, and it would be great to gain insight into why/how these results are so different from what we’ve always known to be true about our ancestry.

  • Colleen Allen


    March 14, 2019

    I would love to learn more about techniques to research my family genealogy. Also, I will be close enough to check out areas where some of my family members originated from.

  • Joyce DeVane


    March 14, 2019

    Genealogy is not just my hobby, it’s way more than that! I had built a huge family tree before finding out through MyHeritageDNA that my father wasn’t my birth father. So, at age 70, I’m starting over. It’s harder this time because there’s no one left to ask any questions of. But I’m making headway with my new tree and I’m excited about the new technology the MyHeritage has just announced!! It would be the dream of a lifetime to go to Amsterdam and learn more.

    I’ve never been to Europe and my family’s roots are from Norway. The opportunity to go to this event is once in a lifetime for me. I’ve joined My Heritage and have become almost obsessed with my genealogy. I hope to win the trip to the My Heritage event in September. This way I’ll be able to hopefully find family members and reconnect with family members I’ve never met or new even existed.

  • Bonnie Mann


    March 14, 2019

    I began researching my family history in the 80’s. Back then I had to travel to county courthouses because there was nothing online. By the early 90’s I was able to put all the research together to trace my family back to the 1716 arrival of one of my ancestors. Now with so much online and with DNA connections I have expanded all the branches of my family. I would really love to go to Amsterdam for the conference, and also while there, possibly find family connections and explore locations from my Dutch heritage. Any information I get at the conference will undoubtedly be useful that I can share with other researchers. Who knows, I may find a distant relative there who is also searching for a connection.

    I would be so excited to be able to attend. I am my family’s historian and genealogist. Many of my family has had their DNA done and we have had several surprises. I would love to learn enough to chase some of these mysteries down.

    I’m hopeful that by attending this conference I will be able to break through a brick wall or two that are keeping me from further exploring my roots.

  • Claudia Thibadeau

    My heritage is Danish and Swedish. I have long dreamed of a trip to research my heritage but have never had the money. I want to do research in my historical heritage areas to get the most accurate information so I can pass on my family history to my children.

    March 14, 2019

    I would like to go to MyHeritage Live in Amsterdam to attend the conference and visit my Dutch cousin who recently collaborated with me on a book called “Jaap and Emmy” that was researched with the hep of MyHeritage.

    Thank you,

    My mother was a Malone and has a very good family tree however my Father is a Sawyer from the Bahamas. We can only trace to 1808 in the island but would love to follow it as far back as possible. My DNA says Great Britian, Scandinavia and Iberia , need help

  • Brian Hughes


    March 14, 2019

    When I look in the mirror, I can feel all the history that is within me. I now look at people, any people/person and think first; Who is our common ancestor? The discoveries I’ve made on MyHeritage has rewired my neural network. My thinking and choices are now a confluence of all those humans that are MyHeritage.

  • Vicki C. Green


    March 14, 2019

    Connecting my family with our ancestors has become a passion. After having our DNA test results, we now know how rich our European heritage is! I would love to come to MyHeritage Live in Europe to discover even more. Having the right tools is so important to learning. I’m sure this is the perfect conference to accessing those tools. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I don’t think I’m using MyHeritage to it’s full potential and know I could learn to get more out of it by attending the conference. I’ve been bitten by the ”genealogy bug”, and I love that I’m always learning something new.

    I have been actively persuing my ancestry for abut 18 years. It is so exciting to find that one name that opens a whole new family. Learning about new tools and techniques could help me open the doors to the dead ends I experience. I would, also, enjoy sharing my excitement with others who feel the same way.

  • Barbara Walter


    March 14, 2019

    I grew up with the story that my Polish immigrant grandfather left behind “a brother who he lost contact with, who he missed very much.” After researching my ancestry I found that he was 1 of 8 children. In 2018 75 ancestors gathered in the Polish village where our 4th great grandfather lived for an emotional family reunion. The research I have done in My Heritage has changed my life. ❤️

  • Carol


    March 15, 2019

    I have heritage from the Netherlands and have always been interested. I have been question family since 5 years old when I quizzed my paternal grandmother on her odd surname, Aas. I didn’t think it could get worse than Oien, my maiden name! As a 5 year old this was astonishing to me that there were so many vowels.

  • Janet Praxel

    I am a genealogist that knows very little about “the tricks of the trade”. I have a true heart and zeal for digging up my family history, but need guidance.

    March 15, 2019

    Most of my paternal ancestry is in Europe. It was through My Heritage that I was able to connect with a DNA match that helped me uncover my father’s line. Without that match, the family would still be searching, as we have been for over 50 years.

  • Judith Hayes


    March 15, 2019

    I would love to come and see the different ways people have done things. If anyone can show me the way to have my family trees searches(3) in a state of non-confusion. I am getting on in age and some of my nieces and nephews are interested in taking on this task.
    All I need is help to generate easier ways to hand it over.

As an anthropologist in Australia I have been working over the last six years assisting Indigenous Australians fill in the missing pieces of their familiy history. As a non-Indigenous Australian I am slowly reconnecting my own family history from Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, England, Wales, Ireland and Scotland. What a task! Would love to go!!

    I really, really, really, really want to go to My Heritage LIVE!! I just *love* your new DNA tools and I encourage everyone to upload their DNA results or get them done and use the Auto Cluster reports and the Theory of Family Relativity! (what a great name!). I’d love to go to one place that’s all about My Heritage and research and DNA. You do such great work and your online product is so intuitive and amazing. Your staff is so genuine and relaxed – not so corporate as others. PLEASE, I HOPE I WIN! 🙂

    Part of my heritage is from the Netherlands, so it would be fun to explore genealogy there. My birthday is the following week, so it would be like an early gift.

  • Mary Alyse Strother


    March 15, 2019

    So many wonderful things have happened since I started on my DNA search. One of the many great findings was finding a fourth cousin that I never knew. We are now good friends and have certainly bonded over our ancestor quest. Another finding, I never knew I had a second great grandmother from England. Her family is very large and even though I may never know any of them I now feel that I do.
    I want to learn so much more by listening to the experts, meeting with other enthusiasts and just have a great time.
    Thank you MyHeritage

    “Family Is Forever” and meeting my ancestors through the family tree has been so exciting! Sharing is caring is the old saying and finding new ways to share and help others has always been how I would like to be remembered. Finding out I was 100% European was a shocker to me and it would be great to be able to explore in a place I have only dreamed about. Thanks for the contest and I hope whoever wins has a terrific tale to share with all of us. Good Luck to everyone!!!

    It would be lovely to know the story behind my birth, I don’t think it’s going to happen, but you never know. In the meantime I can enjoy seeing how exciting it is to find ancestors. I already have wonderful background from my Dad. adopted or not it’s wonderful to know his background.

    My husband spent two years living in the Netherlands and Belgium. He would love to go back and meet some of his friends who live there. Also, his great-grandparents (Teerlink/Hilgers) came to America from Kamerik, Utrecht and Delfshaven, Rotterdam. It would be fabulous to see the cities and harbors they knew as well as the places my husband roamed – perhaps we could even connect with distant family members!

    My maternal grandfather is descended from some of the earliest Dutch settlers of New Amsterdam, but I am stuck on finding their ancestors.

I would love to attend this year’s conference, renew some acquaintances, and get more training in the art of tracking down my family roots.

  • Babygirlburke


    March 15, 2019

    I would like to attend MyHeritage Live! with my cousin who I have never met. We have spent a lot of time working on our family tree and discovering how we connect. We were both adopted and have had great fun drilling down on our shared history and have learned a lot in the process – the rich history of our country, the legacies our forebears left and how wonderful friendships can be made from the DNA matching process. The two of us have often spoken of spending some time together doing nothing but genealogy, so this would be the perfect opportunity!

  • Karen Buxton


    March 15, 2019

    Although I’m now 78, I am still heavily involved in genealogy, both personally and as a volunteer for our local historical society. I have relatives in Germany and my husband had Dutch heritage on his maternal side, going back to Revolved Waldron, a sheriff in New Amsterdam for Peter Stuyvesant. His father was the youngest of 13 born in London who emigrated in the early 1900s. Most of his family stayed in England but we did visit with one of his cousins when we visited about 35 years ago. The chance to exchange information with Europeans, and possibly contact relatives, and to hear the programs that will be presented by internationally known genealogists is very exciting.

    March 15, 2019

    I immigrated from The Netherland to New Zealand in 1980. A couple of years ago I started to trace my ancestors using the help of My Heritage and my DNA sample. My Heritage has been a great help finding lost relations as I was unable to visit the towns of my ancestors due to the enormous distance. I am now in contact many people who I did not know before. I even discovered that I have half-brothers and half-sisters living in The Netherlands.
    Most of my ancestors come from the county Drenthe in The Netherlands and I would love to visit them. However as I am now at retirement age, money is an issue.
    I would love the opportunity of experiencing the presentations, speakers, and tools My Heritage will present at the Amsterdam conference. It would mean the world to me.

    I have recently found that my paternal Great Grandfather comes from a little village on the border between France and Belgium.

    Australia – where I live – is so far away “Downunder” that it would be a fantastic opportunity to combine a genealogy research trip and also to participate in the MyHeritage LIVE event in September.

    I desperately need to upskill my knowledge on genetic genealogy and the MyHeritage LIVE workshops will hopefully fill that void.

    Oh! And a European holiday would be the icing on the genealogical cake!

  • Cassandra Kreifels


    March 15, 2019

    The reason I would be unbelievably thankful, and absolutely ecstatic with pure joy to be chosen to win this trip is because not only is a large portion of my heritage rooted in the Netherlands! But myheritage and working on my family’s geaneolgy brought my father and I together. We hadn’t spoken to eachother much for years. Then one day I logged into my email, and seen I had all of these messages saying updates had been made to people on my tree… at first I was a little Annoyed thinking.. “who the heck does this person think they are! why do they think they can just tinker with all my hard work tracing my ancestors back so many generations!” Well, To my surprise it was my father! (Haa..haa!!) And that is how we reconnected. We found our common ground, we finally found something that we both really enjoy doing, and sare a passion for. The most precious gift of all that came from this, is that I found my father. It might not be in a way others have achieved through this site. Finding their heritage and relatives through a DNA test which previously would have been unattainable for them. But I promise you that the gift of finding my father through finding my heritage is just as much of a blessing as it is for those finding a family they never had the chance to know. So when you ask to know why I would want to go to myheritage live it’s a simple answer for me. You gave me back my father after we drifted apart and lost each other for many years, and now we talk every day! I’m thankful and feel so blessed to have him back in my life. I would love to be chosen to go to myheritage live In Amsterdam with my father. Right now we live 14 hours apart and I haven’t gotten to see to see him or spend time with him in quite awhile. Being chosen would be a dream come true.

    I would love to win free tickets to the MyHeritage LIVE 2019 conference because I have been using the MyHeritage site for the past 2 years and have had DNA tests done for myself, my husband and son and have been thrilled at seeing the results of our ancestory. We are a multi-cultural family and it would be great to learn more about family genetics by DNA.

    My heritage is a mystery which I have never been able to unravel,so I would love to realise my dream of discovering some of the people, but more importantly, the background to their lives and how that led to my life. I want to learn about the lives my ancestors had and why they made the choices they did. Then I could pass that on to my own grandchildren, yet to grow into their curiosity.

    I have just helped my friend Joan find her mother’s birth family though DNA testing. Joan’s birth mother was adopted, and Joan knew nothing about her mother’s birth family as Joan’s mother died when Joan was eight. Joan and four of her siblings were then adopted by other families. Joan’s father could not look after the 12 children that were left when their mother died. MyHeritage.com has played a major part in this journey to find my friend Joan’s mother’s family. Many thanks myheritage. I know how wonderful DNA testing is for some people. I would love to go to Amsterdam to hear the latest developments regarding DNA testing and its application. I want to help others who wish to find their birth families.

    March 15, 2019

    In June of 2015 I was diagnosed with incurable Breast Cancer which spread to my bones and lymph node. It is so important to me to learn more about my ancestry (especially on my fathers side as I am stuck and my cousin who I was working with passed away just over a year ago) so I can pass the information down to my sons and grandsons etc. The My Heritage DNA test helped so much and I would love to attend this conference to obtain knowledge for myself and to pass on the information to my children. Family is so important to me but I do not have a lot of money to spend on the research I need to accomplish my task. Thank you

  • DOUGLAS RUTLEDGE


    March 15, 2019

    For many years while I was young my father told me I had two other siblings. A sister and a brother. I was too young to ask important questions. Like how do you know it was during the war, didn’t you leave before and come home. Do you know where the mother or mothers are living know. Do you know where the children are did you meet and hold this boy and this girl.
    So once DNA became affordable and after my mother died and order the DNA kit and got back my results. I found a half sibling that only lived 90 minutes away. That got me thinking, did my father know that this girl my sister lived her, and married? She was adopted. Did my dad know what happed to the mother? If my dad know of these children why didn’t he do something about it their condition. Step up and be a father.
    So many unanswered questions that may never be answered.

    I need guidance on using the huge dna hit list and linking this to others through names and locations. I belong to a genealogy group in my over 55 community and want to help others, also. I know I have many cousins in Israel but because they are from maternal grandmothers sisters, from early 1900s and names are Changed with marriage, I am having trouble. Help!

    I am just a dot like a SEED planted in the darkness waiting on others to connect the dots of who are where I am coming from. I just have one DNA match to Amsterdam but it’s a piece of my DNA probably no one will notice. I think all DNA does matter because it leads to someone LIFE . I like to see My Heritage Take me to Amsterdam A DOT .

  • Mary Allen


    March 15, 2019

    I would love to find my father. I believe I know who he is, but he does not acknowledge I’m his. I don’t know enough about how to access MyHertiage to my advantage. I was hoping if I signed up for this and took the test, someone on his side would be in your system as well. I believe if I could go to this conference I could learn a a lot, but there is absolutely no was I could afford it on my own.
    I appreciate the opportunity for a chance to win.

  • John Walsh


    March 15, 2019

    My father wrote a book on the ” History of Templemore and it’s Environs”. It was written using a portable type writer, using tippex paper to correct spelling, his filing system was flat shirt boxes, they were slightly larger than A4 paper, and they were coloured coded for identification, about 12 boxes in all. I was one of five children in the family You dare not touch or disturb any of the boxes. We were often caught sneaking out a blank page for colouring and play, and there would be hell to pay. Did I ask him about history, no, no we were way too busy, TV had just come into our home (1965), and I had discovered rock and roll, and testosterone was beginning to kick in.
    Now that he is no longer with us, I do of course regret not asking about our history. Then in 2012 I came across my heritage, and the historical voyage started. I helped restart our local historical society, was chairman for 3 years, and still very much involved. I have traced my family back to the 1700’s and still working on it. (I retired in 2015). I find talking to people about family history and particularly getting tips and encourage from them on research can be very very helpful and fascinating. Because of my family research I have made wonderful friends and discovered many cousins. Also I am wanderlust type of person, or in Ireland we are called ” Galavanters “. eg. ” He is fore ever gallavanting, or ” The road isn’t half long enough for him ” . Amsterdam is on my bucket list, and I would love to go there. John Walsh

    MyHeritage helped me solve the 52-year old mystery that was my birth father. In the space of a week, I went from knowing nothing, to being able to trace his side back to the 1400’s, and finding out I was a combination of German and Finnish. It was an amazing personal discovery for me. I would love the chance to be at the conference.

    My Heritage has been invaluable in researching my paternal family, and it would fulfill my research dream to attend this conference. I have hit three brick walls in my search for family: Julia Victoria Carlson (foster child, Sweden); Gilbert Warner; and Mary Catherine Ivory (Ireland). I knew my great grandmother, Julia who I called GG. My mother never knew Julia, her grandmother, was a foster child. I have searched for these relatives for years to no avail, and would love to attend this conference in hopes of learning better resources, methods and leads.

    I want to attend the conference to find my family on my father side of the family , if any are still living. My family never met one person from my fathers side of the family. He never spoke of them. It is like he dropped onto this earth when he met and married my mother in the 1930 ‘s . My DNA says I am 41% Scandinavia , which was a big surprise to me. I just want more information
    If possible. I have hit a dead end in research.

    I am adopted and while I’ve always enjoying digging back into my adoptive parent’s history & heritage, it has never truly felt like “mine”. The adoption agency told my parents my natural paternal grandfather was Native American, but when I got my DNA results back there wasn’t a drop in me! Evidently I’m mostly Irish & Scandinavian.
    So now I am excited to learn more about the genetic history of ME me and tracing my natural family and roots to solve this mystery. Any extra insight or tools and techniques that I could learn would just make this journey that much better!

I am sure there is a lot of information that I could find out as to do a proper family tree and how to do corrections where I know there are errors. I have never been able afford to travel abroad.

    March 15, 2019

    I have been researching my grandmother’s 1893 adoption for many years and DNA has helped to narow down the biological lines. Your Auto Cluster feature was extremely helpful in getting some of my late Aunt’s matches sorted in a more meaningful way. Now I can begin to fill in some of the missing links in the tree between my grandmother’s biological parents and their ancestors.
    Along the way, I discoverd, very much to my surprise, that my grandmother has a significant amount of Colonial Dutch ancestry! I visited Amsterdam when I was in college in 1983, not realizing a part of my heritage was from this country. I would love to go back and see it through new eyes. Plus my other ancestral country, Norway, is nearby and I would love to see my great-grandparents’ hometowns of Porsgrun and Stavanger.
    I only wish my mother, aunt and uncle were still with us so I could share all of this with them.

I would love to expand my knowledge-base by attending this conference but the cost won’t allow me to do so. Please select me.

    I’m very interested in learning all that I can about my family ancestry. I knew I was of French and Irish blood, but until completing MyHeritage DNA, I had no idea that I also had English Ancestry in my family tree. I would be anxious to meet people with similar interests and to acquire more knowledge about ancestry research.

    I have been trying on my own. to find out about my family, I sure could use the extra help, as I’m not getting very far on my own!

    I would love to go investigate and learn more about my Heritage! It’s always interested me since my childhood of who and what am I made up of? I’m from Texas and never even been out of the USA, it would be the best gift of my life to travel to Norway to learn more than I’ve ever dreamed of!!! Thank you

    I would love to attend the MyHeritage Live 2019 event. I was adopted as a young child and have been searching for my family and their history story ever since. I have met a few of my family members but no one can really tell me much. I have set out on a journey of finding my history to learn more about myself and also for my children as well. I love researching and attending this MyHeritage Live 2019 event in Amsterdam would help me improve my skills and knowledge, plus introduce me to like minded people. I have learnt through DNA that my family comes from the United Kingdom (U.K.). I would love to have the opportunity to travel.

  • Marjorie Blackman


    March 15, 2019

    I am really interested in finding out more and how to understand the ins and outs of My Heritage and how it all works.
    AT 50 years of age i found out that my dad wasn’t my real dad. So i have been searching now for 15 years. I have found a 2nd cousin but still not my father. IM not good with understanding it all but with some help of my friend and now new cousin im getting alittle better. I feel bad that i have to keep asking her the questions, so this would help me so much….
    Its an exciting thing to be happening and im all up for meeting and seeing it in Amsterdam.
    Thankyou so much for giving one of us the chance…..Marjorie

    The majority of my ancestors are from areas very close to the Netherlands. This would provide an opportunity to enhance my research abilities and resources.

    I’m becoming passionate about genetic analysis and the tools especially as these are demonstrated through MyHeritage. I would like to take this further and connect with more people and other enthusiasts as well!

  • Chalmer Harper


    March 15, 2019

    I think the world of DNA and Genealogy is fascinating! I would be an honor to go to Amsterdam to MyHeritage LIVE!

    I am adopted, and I knew nothing of my biological story. Honestly, I really had no desire to know anything about my biological makeup. I was content to wonder if there were others who were connected to me, but never knowing who they were. However, after seeing a friend find a Brother he knew nothing about, I decided to take the plunge. I am so glad I did.

    I gathered the courage to take the MyHeritage DNA test. That was the first step in a puzzle that I am now working to piece together. Now, that my DNA doors have been opened, there is a want to explore more about who my biological family might be – what/who MyHeritage is (pun intended) – to add some missing chapters and most of relatives to my story.

    I am finally finding all of my lost family. I would love to be able to listen to the lectures and learn even more about this fascinating history that everybody has.

  • John Malia


    March 15, 2019

    The reason I would like to go to My Heritage live is because I have hit a brick wall with my great grandad who was born in Ireland. I have had several brick walls over the last 15 years but this one I cannot break down. I would like someone to give me that hammer to break it down at the show.
    I just want that hammer time at the show.

    March 15, 2019

    Attending the MyHeritage User Conference MyHeritage LIVE 2019 in Amsterdam would provide an unequaled opportunity to learn about the latest trends, technology and best practices as I explore a new career direction in international genealogy to help others looking for their roots. I would relish the opportunity to meet fellow family history enthusiasts and top experts from around the world. I would also take advantage of being in Europe to travel to Poland where MyHeritage has connected me to long lost cousins who trace our ancestors going back to 1550, and do more research.

  • Ann Johnson


    March 15, 2019

    For 40 some years I have had a pen and paper in hand whenever I was with a family elder – from my parents, my husband’s parents, aunts, uncles, cousins of every generation. Don’t ask me why, but I must have that ‘genealogy disease’ that afflicts a certain number of people of every generation, of every population. I have become the repository for old letters, documents, pictures that many people throw away. Today I have the life stories of many, many people in my and my husband’s family. I am always hoping to learn more.

  • Mollie J McPherson


    March 15, 2019

    I would like to attend the conference to learn all I can about ancestry and how to verify everything. Others can help me with my quest and get one important item checked off my bucket list! I want to learn/know who they were, where they came from, and how they lived. My ancestry is so important to me as if I don’t do the research my grand children will not know their heritage and ancestors. ALL the grand parents of my son’s are now gone to heaven. If I do not leave some information to even start with, they may not know their heritage at all. I welcome anyone’s assistance in helping finding family history and information, especially if “My Heritage” will assist me along the way. I will be so greatful.

    I have over 50 years experience as a family Historian including a dozen years as a National Archives volunteer, teaching family history at an Air Force library and helping hundreds of others searching out their roots.
    I would love to take my wife to her ancestral Homeland to celebrate our genealogy. A trip to the Neatherlands and photographing one of her families primary nation’s of origin would be one of the highlights of my work and perhaps help my wife understand my passion for discovering and preserving our combined families lineage.

  • Paul V. Miller


    March 15, 2019

    I have been doing genealogy for many years now and traveled to many places in the US to do research, see and photograph cemeteries,and meet new relatives, from second cousins to fifth cousins. Unfortunately, I do not have the financial means to visit my relatives in Norway, England, Germany, Switzerland, etc. I am at an age where the time is running low to research in these countries. I would be so happy to win the free tickets to the MyHeritage Live expo. I also have two DNA results,but can not figure out how to interpret and share the results. My Heritage has been a godsend, as they say, to finding new ancestors. I have broken my brick wall to the Miller family. I also have Exel spreadsheets on many of my lines. Shalom to you all. Paul

  • JoAnne Lowe


    March 15, 2019

    My husband and I would love to win the tickets to the My Heritage LIve conference because, as an adoptee, he has found biological family and we’ve met with them! What a wonderful feeling this was for him! I’d love him to locate his biological mother’s family too.

  • Lorlee Lee Murray


    March 15, 2019

    I am interested since I was adopted and my DNA has yet to reveal any close relations but it has given me what my genetic makeup is. I have never been there and would love to go and meet others that like me only have part of the story (I did find my birth mother at age 40 but not long with her since she had cancer and she refused to say who my father was).

  • Robin

    As a MyHeritage member with mixed heritage, European and African, this conference would assist me in my European research. To be in Europe and to experienced the vibe of people there along with those coming from so many other historic locations, I believe participating in this conference with help me learn where my family’s story began so I can know better who I am. That’s the journey, right?

    I am new to searching my family history. I am a retired RN. I stay with my 2 grandsons several days a week while their mom works. Both of the boys are adopted and they are interested in what I am doing. We have been told that they may have family history from the Netherlands but information is sketchy and minimal. Financial limitations block my ability to access sites which charge a subscription.

  • Gayle M Glick


    March 15, 2019

    I want to attend MyHeritage Live 2019 because due to unforeseen events I’ve been away from my genealogy too long. (3 years) I’m slowly getting back into it and loving the new technology I’ve seen so far. This would be an opportunity for me to dive headfirst back into my genealogy. It would give me a chance to research abroad, and find out what is being done on the other side of the pond.

  • John Simmons

    MyHeritage has helped me locate our family in Arizona, Mexico, and now Spain! I am still searching for family in Spain and hope to meet and unite with them.

    I just started using MyHeritage recently and quite impressed after being a faithful Ancestry subscriber for many many years. I recently found out I was an NPE. I’m 65 years old and my retired life is committed to genealogy especially since I have a newfound paternal family. I watch webinars, read blogs, magazines, or anything I can get my hands on as I have a huge thirst for knowledge in finding all of this. Amsterdam is a wonderful city as my daughter lived there for 10 years and a perfect place to have this. Congrats to MyHeritage and your commitment to people like me. It is a great website and company!

    I would really be grateful to win two tickets to MyHeritageLive 2019. I am a sixty-one year old mother & grandmother (four children and 13 grandchildren). I’ve been researching family history for about six years, and this conference would help me to become a better family genealogist. Also, it would allow me to leave my grandchildren with an understanding of where our ancestors originated from, along with showing them the importance of history. Thank you very much for your consideration of this gift!

    I would love to go MyHeritage Live because I am still learning about genealogy. I didn’t really have a big interest until I did my DNA, at 55 years old, and found that my Dad was not my biological father. Not to mention, who wouldn’t want to go to Amsterdam!!

  • Myrna Waters


    March 15, 2019

    I would appreciate joining a group where so much expertise in genealogy research will be available and shared. There are a lot of new breakthroughs using DNA, but learning the best approach for finding true matches and how to navigate the pathways is difficult. I would like to hear some basic discussions for the layman on the simplest and most cohesive way to use DNA results to make connections.
    In addition, I would like to know some detailed ways to research my roots in Eastern Europe.

    Thank you.

    I would like to understand DNA better. I’m not use how to use the DNA results to assist in finding ancestors. I attended RootsTech 2019 and am more confused. There are so many kits and so many ways to twist the information. I want to learn the correct ways to use this great technology advance. RootsTech give a snippet here and a small piece there, so hard to get the begin to end route and thereby find true results i can understand and learn from. From all I have heard and seen, MyHeritage is the best chance to help me.

Very often I end up discussing the genetics, my own ethnicity dna results and how much we are all connected. The concept of us vs then is something I am very much interested in, even from the historical point of view and I think technology is about diversity and embracing the planet as a whole, accepting the differences and researching what brings us forward

    As a fairly new member of MyHeritage, my excitement after reading all about what the first meeting was like, made me think about the Amsterdam meeting.We usually go on a cruise at that time of year, but my wife and I would give up a cruise for MyHeritage attendance at the meeting.Writing about this brings an idea to life. Make the following year a more “moving” experience by hiring a cruise ship to have the next meeting for a minimum of 3 to 7 days. These cruise ships today have all the amenities to have various side meetings by guest speakers. Depending how many people attend MYHeritage meetings could prove that it would mainly a self paying for the cruise. Just a thought. Further suggestion, make the journey Europe to New York for example.

I have learned a lot but I feel there is SO much I don’t know, and I am dying to learn more…especially about my DNA. I think it would also help me to know why tracing my relatives, I go back to Pocohantas (Matoaka), but my DNA does not. I also yearn to know how to use My Heritage more. I am a recent subscriber and I know you can and are able to help me. Please consider us. Thank you ‘oodles’!!

    As a senior who cares deeply about preserving history, I feel that attending this conference will expose me to the latest developments in areas in which I seek knowledge so I can better help others. It will uplift my spirits and encourage my ongoing work on my website and enable me to answer inquiries about the subjects being presented. Funding would enable me to combine attending this conference with filming Gillespie graves in Holland. It would bring great enjoyment in meeting others who are like minded in preserving family history.

She has been wanting to do the research on her family for years and I have started it on her behalf. But honestly I am working on several of my own family lines and cannot take her on as well at the moment. If she was to win the contest I know it would get her excited about doing her family research!

    thanks and keep up the amazing work you do!!!

    I had an epiphany when I saw this email…all my years of genealogy research, my recent dna results and the fact that of all countries (though I live in U.S.) I have always had an affinity to the Netherlands and when I was in elementary school did a report on.this country…as well as a 3d map of it with flour salt and water LoL

    I would love to attend MyHeritage LIVE2019 in Amsterdam! I have taken a few genealogy courses but would love to expand my knowledge and techniques even more so. The opportunity to meet some of these world renowned genealogists would be a dream come true! I have traced my paternal line back to France and just recently found a connection in the 1400’s and earlier, to Holland. I would love to combine the conference with the opportunity to visit France and neighboring countries to see where my ancestors and relatives, live(d), work(ed), fought and are buried! I would bring my wife who is of Irish descent and would include a side trip to Ireland to visit the town of Skerries where her Grandfather was born and raised and make connections in the town with some of her distant relatives. It would be a trip of a lifetime!

    Hi my name is Patricia. I’ve always wanted to know why I look the way I do, or like the things; jewelry, clothes, foods etc., I do that indicate some of my ethnicity. I’m always being confused for being other races/ethnicities so I’d love to attend the conference to learn more about where I may have come from. I was bullied in middle school a lot because of my skin color and was detained a year in the 8th grade for fighting back and getting suspended. I just want to know who I truly am so when people ask as they much of the time do I can have a more educated answer instead just of saying mixed. Thanks,
    Patti

    I am a fairly new user of My Heritage and have found so much more information than I had from other sites. Using My Heritage has rekindled my enthusiasm for genealogy. Attending the conference would allow me to explore all that My Heritage has to offer.

    I’ve never been this enthralled, engaged or interested in anything as much as I have my DNA and My Heritage (Tree). My journey started one year ago after completing a DNA test and wondering how my origins came about.

    I have stayed up too late, got up too early, utilized my work lunches, breaks and days off only to be elated upon every match connection! Could life get any better if this was all going on around Amsterdam rather than my sofa, desk or car seat?

    Great chance to learn from the experts & especially the the cool new tools to help with my genetic genealogy journey! ☺ Also one of my genealogy roadblocks is my Sain family who I have traced to Germany in 1730 so it would be awesome to visit there too!

    Looking forward to more incites to DNA and how it can help me find family members that could help me resole brickwalls. My G-GF changed his name from Bond to Dodd when he came to the US from England C 1871. His mother’s name was Frith.

  • Rose Mary Keller Hughe


    March 15, 2019

    I’ve been a committed seeker of information about my family’s history. I started knowing just a few people in my family tree and now I have over 20,000 people whom I can call relative! My roots info is most in abundance from when they (peasants in Germany) were invited, along with many others in the same circumstances, by the Hapsburg royals to go to Hungary to resettle land formerly in use by the Turks who had been driven out of Hungary. I want to learn how I can find my ancestors in Germany–the ones who ended up in Hungary. I also want to meet fellow researchers (I find it very difficult to call myself a genealogist–don’t ask me why) who might be able to direct me to the right path. It’s always exciting to meet people who are interested in the same things–I’d love to share ideas and info with those people. By the way, I will turn 88 in May–I may be old but I’ve not lost my drive. I’m also pretty fast on the computer (I’m a long-time retired business teacher) so I can sit for hours and type in more people on my family tree (I use FTM). Okay, enough about me . . . tell me about yourself! Go ahead, I’m listening! 🙂 PS: I had DNA done by Ancestry.com and I also had it done by MyHeritage.com–guess what! They were different! What would cause that???

    I became intrigued by my heritage for two reasons. First my mum was adopted in the 1930s so we know nothing about her heritage. Secondly I have red hair, I wanted to see if it’s from Irish or Scottish background. I’m fascinated about learning my families oath over the generations.

  • Theresa Ward


    March 15, 2019

    As I am an adoptee only two years ago I had no idea who my biological parents were. I had searched over the years but my adoption was a closed case I did not even have a first name to go by. I had all but given up on ever knowing my roots. My daughter purchased a DNA kit for me on Mothers Day two years ago. I thought well at least maybe I can find out some nationality info, so I took the test. About 4 weeks later I got an email saying my results were available. I was absolutely shocked to see my results as they showed me my biological father. Long story short I now have my dad, I know who my mother is, I have a brother two sisters and 10 nieces and nephews. My family keeps growing. I am still trying to figure out how to put all this genealogy together. But I do know new tools means new connections. Had I never taken this test I would still be wondering where my family is and maybe never gotten to know. Thank you for all you do for everyone interested in their roots and especially for those like me who don’t even know where to start.

  • Sara Green


    March 15, 2019

    As an only child whose parents have passed away- family means a whole lot to me. Trying to piece together who my ancestors are has been made more difficult without anyone to ask questions of. Older, extended family members do not have good memories, so being able to come to this event and learn from experts how to do the research necessary to build my family tree would mean everything to me! Even though I try to research on my own; without the concrete knowledge where to look or what to look for beyond the basics of census, birth and death records I feel lost. If accepted for this trip I plan to try to soak up as much as possible for my own use, but also to bring back to share with those friends who are in the same situation I have been in trying to find ancestors.

    March 15, 2019

    Hi from Chicago! My father was from Holland – and I can trace his father’s lineage back several generations. Attending this conference would be extremely personal for me – to see the house my father hid in from the Nazi’s, to seeing the family hotel that had been in the family for generations prior to WWII. Being able to visit family grave sites would be the frosting on the cake – not to mention attending all of the great lectures!

    My relatives and I have been working on our family tree for a few years now using MyHeritage an FamilyTreeBuilder tools. At this moment we feel though that we hit a few “brick walls”. I am sure that attending the MyHeritage LIVE would be an enormous help. Free conference tickets is the only way we could afford to attend this event, to learn, and to network with similar-minded people! Thank you for the hope.

    This conference sounds absolutely fascinating, exciting and very informative. To be able to attend this conference would mean the world to me.

    I would love to go to this event!!!! I have been doing my genealogy for a couple of years now and I am at a stand still. I would love to find out more techniques to be able to find more information. I’m making books for my kids and trying to go back as far as possible. I did find out I am related to Johannes Glenn, who was the right hand man of George Washington. Johannes either was given land or won land in a poker game – and that’s how the town of Glens Falls, NY came about. I want to be able to find more information and more stories like this in my family.

    I’d love to go to this event to continue research that my mother and cousin started, but unfortunately did not get to finish because of their unexpected deaths. It would be a thrill to meet new family members and learn new techniques. It would be be a wonderful trip to bond with my daughter and teach her our family history. I wanna go!!

    March 15, 2019

    I have two reasons to go to the Heritage Geneology Conference in Amsterdam:

    l.) I just renewed my subscription to Heritage.com after going through the trial stage; and,

    2.) I have Dutch roots that I would like to explore so I would like to stay there to do some research after the conference is over.

    I would like to imagine this trip as an in-depth discovery of the Heritage.com experience and I would like to see what the archives in Amsterdam have to offer. I love genealogy and have been doing it for a number of years. I have yet to go to Europe to do my research there and Amsterdam seems like the perfect place to start.

    March 15, 2019

    I want to go to my heritage live because I am still a bit skeptical about this DNA process. I have bought the DNA kit and I am a member but I still having a hard time believing the accuracy and understanding my results. It seems more likely the weight of information comes from other people’s family trees.

    This would be a once-in-a-lifetime AMAZING journey for me!! Besides the fact that the conference would expose me to the lastest developments in MyHeritage, but my father was born in the Netherlands, and I have never had the opportunity to visit. It has been a dream of mine for my whole life to visit the country to see where my dad and his family lived and hid Jews in their home during World War II, and where my grandfather worked in the Dutch Underground with Corrie ten Boom. This would truly be a dream come true for me! Thank you for the chance to apply for this amazing opportunity!

    We would like to go to My Heritage LIVE because we live in New Zealand and my husband John Viseur was born in the Netherlands where the conference is being held this year. Not only would my husband get to see his family again, but he has been actively looking for his family connection and passionately completing his Viseur family research for years. Also knowledge to advance his heritage search

    March 16, 2019

    I joined My Heritage to learn about my genetic makeup and found a 1st cousin who was adopted and looking for her father. I was able to connect her to family.

    March 16, 2019

    My name is Norma McIntosh. However my mother is a Miles and my father is a Moores. I have been searching for my father for 42 yrs.bI was born in California, yet all my family are from Canada Newfoundland area.
    I would love for the chance to win and meet some of the greatest minds in the field of DNA, genological family tree experts.
    I would be sad for my children if I wasn’t able to complete their ancestors before I die. I don’t want another generation to not have the answers I’m unable to give.
    I know that my NPE status is becoming not that uncommon. As more and more do DNA test.
    I know I am never giving up my search. I want to know who I look like, do I have the same eyes as my paternal side.
    What was my father like? What did he do for a living? Did he have hobbies? If he has passed away what from?
    I have not had the best childhood and being a homeless teen prove to be even harder. Yet, I found strength enough to become the woman I am today.
    I want to show others like me that through taking a DNA test it’s possible to find family.
    I hold out for hope to be lucky enough to win the chance of a lifetime.
    Thank you for considering me for the tickets.

    Being born in 1950 via artificial insemination thru a sperm donor from a medical student is all the info I had according to my mom. Last year I took the test. Long story short…my biological father turned out to be my OBGYN and delivered his own granddaughter 36 years ago. I have also located 3 other sperm donated siblings from him that had no clue they were conceived that way. Since this discovery, my daughter and I have been so involved in research and how this works. Her and I would enjoy this opportunity to learn even more about this fascinating world not to mention some mom and daughter time together too. I also have a brother that I just found who his biological father was too. My brother is a Radiologist and so was his father! It only gets better!

I think MyHeritage is the best and I have found many more relatives through it than my other two sites. Thank you so much for all the work done to improve everyone’s chances of finding relatives and solving their brick walls. I have several brick walls and hope to find some answers in my lifetime.

    My new hobby since retiring for the 3rd time is now genealogy. Since starting my search as a newbie I have found on my wife’s family side is a castle in Germany that was built in 1200’s with their name. A chance to travel to the Netherlands for the conference there and to get lots of insight. This would be a way for us to further seek more knowledge for my wife’s family tree and also of my German roots.

The same and only test my aunt had chosen! After losing my adoptive parents to cancer I now have a new family to get to know! They are so happy they finally found “the baby” my biological mother had searched for until her passing in 2014. Thank you guys from the bottom of MyHeart!!

    I have recently just done the DNA test myself and awaiting results. I have been so fascinated with my own family history that i have dated back to the 18th century in eastern Europe and the middle east, however i believe there to be so much more rich history to unearth and i hope to be able to relive the memories of my ancestors. To be able to be at this conference and get a true face to face insight on just how MyHeritage helps us obtain these lost memories would be truly astounding.

My paternal grandmother researched her family back in the 1970’s, using libraries, family histories, etc before the help of the internet. We have reason to believe her family goes back to the Salisbury Plain in England but I need more information to continue this fascinating research. A trip like this would be a dream come true in our quest for more family knowledge. Thanks for the chance to win!

From finding a daughter I gave up for adoption to putting a mentor of mine in touch with a genealogist friend to help him which his thesis idea of reuniting slave desendents with original family recipes that influence southern dining. I am fascinated by the millions of avenues DNA can open up for us and connect us to our past. I wish I knew more.

    I grew up knowing nothing about my father’s side of the family. Through DNA and research I now know half of his tree but the other is a mystery prior to the late 1800’s. Learning new research techniques will help me and my ‘new’ family in this search for my Scandinavian roots.

    I am excited to attend thus event. I found my baby sister I haven’t seen in over 55years and located other relatives, plus I found out my family fought with General George Washington against the British; making me a Daughter of American Revolution.
    I want to attend so bad!!!

    Hi, I would like to learn more of my fathers side. I don’t know anything on his side. I just recently found out who he is or close, but i need to know more, he was born in Oslo Norway, also would like a family tree of that side. Thank you Allen Pambrun

    To attend a live genealogy conference with world renown genealogists as the speakers/presenter would be a really awesome experience. To be able to rub elbows with expert genealogists and to hear what they have to say and learn tips on how to mine for more records and information would be extremely helpful in my familial searches. I believe that I have traced my family ancestors to Germany – Pfalz area for both Maternal families. As for Paternal families – they derive from Germany and the UK. To be so close to the areas that they derived from prior to emigrating to the US would be wonderful. Maybe a side trip would be necessary after the conference.

    With all the great new features that MyHeritage has recently launched, I would love to attend the MyHeritage Live 2019 user conference, a weekend full of workshops and lectures learning hands on is my preferred way of learning and a chance to meet and learn from some of the best of the best in the world of Genealogy, well that’s just a dream come true, not to mention a chance of a life time. If I’m chosen, this would be a great opportunity for me to meet some of my distant cousins (DNA Matches) that live in the Netherlands.

    Thank You,

    We would love to attend a MyHeritage conference in Amsterdam which is much closer to where our families migrated from than where we live in Australia. It would be great to see what MyHeritage offers and what a MyHeritage conference will do for our family history research.

    Oh wow, I have been a member for 2 years and had to upgrade when my family tree went over 250. I am excitedly awaiting my DNA results. To meet other like minded family hunters would be a wonderful experience. My sister researches full time, but I am unable to so any assistance is great.

    I have pursued my higher education with a keen interest in biology and genealogy and and as a young person, I think attending this conference will be of great benefit to my passion and pursuit of knowledge. I am also a huge fan of MyHeritage and have persuaded all of my family members to take the test. The results are always eye-opening and quite astounding at times. I think this conference for be an amazing experience for my partner and I, who are big fans of MyHeritage and all that you guys do. It would be an honour to attend.

  • Charles Piquard


    March 16, 2019

    I am so interested in getting information about my roots. I don’t follow where all the leads about 5th, 6th cousins come into play. Maybe if I have a one on one tutorial I would get into discovering my family originality or origin.

  • Tina Hill


    March 16, 2019

    I have never been to Amsterdam which I hear is an exciting place. I am very interested in learning about ancestry research and how DNA technology is positively impacting culture/society.

    As a teacher, I encourage my inmate students to be lifelong learners. This trip would be a wonderful way to share my new knowledge with my classes, and I hope I get to visit the Anne Frank house and museum. I read Anne’s diary as a child and have always wanted to see the attic.

    Also, I love tulips and I would love to see the fields of beautiful, colorful tulips. I would also like to try real Dutch food and bakery delights.

    I have been interested in my family history for over 50 years from when a relative showed me her family bible, and I sat and copied it all out, I was fascinated and hooked. These days I am using the wonderful DNA matching tools that are available to help find new family members, and help breakdown my brick walls. I would love to meet up with others in the same boat as me, and perhaps get some helpful ideas.

    I think genealogy gives a new perspective to science- it’s changing the whole world. I am very fascinated by getting to know more about latest discoveries and how it all works. I don’t know many people around me to have this kind of knowledge so I really wanna learn more! My brain is asking for it.

    March 16, 2019

    I attended the first Myheritage conference in Oslo ( first time in Norway for me) last year out of the great inquisitiveness all we family history researchers share regarding our (shared) past and origins. I had such a good time being immersed in the great pool of likeminded people who shared their fascination in the subject with the great joy of meeting people from all, around the world whom I never would have met without this opportunity. I want to go to Amsterdam ( first time again for me) and meet my new good friend Sylvia from Brazil again and share some silly time on the dance floor as well as “digging up” my ancestors and family tree.

    March 16, 2019

    I would LOVE to go to My Heritage Live 2019 – not only to finally travel to Europe for the first time, but to learn more about European records and where to find them online (especially 16th- and 17th-century Swiss records), the latest findings in genetic genealogy, and to meet some cousins – especially if I take a side-trip to my father’s hometown in Italy!

  • Edith Reardon


    March 16, 2019

    I’ve been working on my tree for about 25 yrs. now. A lot of dead ends and mixed entries. I would love to hear from the experts how to deal with problems in your tree and how to research for the answers. I’ve always wanted to attend one but had no money or no time. I read what I can but there is nothing like going to conference.

    March 16, 2019

    I am beginning to investigate my late parents heritage. I found I have close maternal family ties to a character portrayed by Matthew McConaughey in a movie titled, The Free State of Jones, that takes place during the American Civil War. I also found my father’s ancestors fought in the American Revolutionary War. I have western European ancestors as well. I’d love to travel to Europe to learn more about genealogy!

    March 16, 2019

    Ever since watching the TV series Roots many years ago … I have been fascinated about knowing where I come from. Studies handed down from generations but are they just stories or is there truth somewhere? My DNA results certainly confirmed some of them … I would love the chance to meet & hear all news and updates from the team … Rosie

    I’d like to go for a couple of reasons:
    My mother always told me I could join the D.A.R. but I am not aware of the lineage to a direct connection to someone serving in the American Revolutionary War. I want to discover that !
    #2. I had two great-grandmothers who immigrated, but have limited knowledge of their origin. One (I have been told) was from Germany, and the other from Ireland.

    March 16, 2019

    Our parents immigrated to Canada with 8 children and a grandfather. I think they were too lonely and too busy to share much of their history. My heritage has helped me find paternal ancestors but we know very little about the maternal side,only the grandparent and the name of one great aunt. I believe that heritage is Scandanavian and am hoping My Heritage can help. Hope to get the Tickets. Thanks so much

    I have been obsessed with genealogy for over 30 years. I’ve always said when I retired I was going to devote all my waking hours to it. I retired last June and I’m loving it!!!!!!!!! My husband’s father was adopted by a family member and no one would ever share any details. Unfortunately, my husband lost his father when he was only 10 years old. My daughter’s father was adopted and his bio dad has been located. Deceased, sadly.

    I have so much more to learn and I love being a ‘detective.’ I would love to hone my skills in Amsterdam.

    P.S. I have my passport. 🙂

    Thanks,

    I’ve been fascinated with genealogy since I was 6 years old, when I was told I’m Dutch, English, Polish and Native American. MyHeritage DNA has helped me discover these roots and more. I can now add Irish and African American to my history. Unfortunately, I’m the only one in my immediate family that’s interested in DNA studies, so attending a conference like this, with like-minded people, would be awesome! 🙂

    My great grandfather was from Italy. He came to the U.S. to find a better life. He ended up working in the West Virginia coal mines and died in a coal mine accident in 1910. We have only one photo and very little information about him. I would love to find out more about his Italian heritage. I need all the help I can get as genealogy research is fairly new to me. This would be a fantastic opportunity for my family to attend this conference.

  • MELODIE Simonsen


    March 16, 2019

    My father was very interested in learning about his heritage but passed away before any of the research websites became available. My mother knew how important this would have been to him and that is why I began my research about 10 years ago. I was able to find out many details that she found fascinating on both her and my father’s side before she passed away a few years ago and I know my research meant the world to her. I have since then asked several of my siblings and an Uncle to do a DNA test for my research and they have provided me with samples that both comfirmed and surprised us about what we thought we knew from stories handed down to us. I would like to have a better understanding of the DNA tests that we have done and find other ways of researching our ancestorial lines over in England and Ireland. I feel closer to my parents when I do this research and I find it fascinating and sometimes overwhelming. I feel like I have reached the end of what I can accomplish but I know that there is more that can be done with a better understanding of what is available to me and what it all means. Thank you.

  • Jonathan Woolf


    March 16, 2019

    I am exploring my family tree, and have found many Dutch ancestors. Last year, having discovered that a near ancestor was a WW2 resistance hero, sadly captured and shot, and that a memorial service was being held in his home town, I journeyed from my home in Oregon, USA to attend. It was far more money than the family could afford, but we made it work. The ceremony was such a moving time, and I met his son and some other relatives for the first time. Unfortunately, I became ill, could not walk, and instead of meeting further relatives for the first time, had to endure an emergency trip home, cutting short my trip. I am 73, retired, and we can probably never afford to get me back to Europe, but this is an opportunity to visit Amsterdam that I cannot overlook. Thank you.

    I would like win the free tickets for Amsterdam because for years I have wanted to seek my English/Scottish heritage. I’m 74 and my paternal grandfather died when my father was 2. He apparently was the Duke of Stadforshire but I do not know anything else. My father never had a photo of him and was brought up by a very abusive step father who adopted him.

    It would also be a wonderful trip for me as my son is a Diplomat at US Embassy in Brussels and it would give me an opportunity to see him.

    i have been a subscriber with my heritage for over 7 years. in 2016 with the help of my heritage i was able to connect my father with his biomom’s family, and he met his first cousin for the first time at the age of 70. and last year with the help of two amazing search angels i was able to present my husband with the identity of his birth father at the age of 54. (my husband was placed for adoption at the age of 3 days. now I have complete DNA and genealogy addiction and want to pay it forward and help others the way complete strangers did for us.
    I have been following my heritage with outmost admiration.. the way you took your place at the hight of the DNA world. and I would be delighted and honored to attend.

    I have used MyHeritage Application now for more than two years. I have some challenges with it although it is a very useful and well built application. However, the issues I get with it is that the developers did not put enough thought into it to cater for our African countries where polygamous large families do exist. I would really appreciate sharing experiences with varied users in a forum such as the one you are announcing.

    I have just been researching my ancestor, Cornelius Melyn, from Amsterdam. I had hoped to attend last year as I had just found a cousin in Norway through a DNA match on My Heritage. I am always trying to learn new tools to help in my quest to learn more about my families heritage.

    I have Dutch ancestry dating back to the 1600s at least. I would love to have the opportunity to learn more about my ancestors. But my biggest challenge is tracing ancestors on my father’s side, which has been most difficult (Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia) and of my maternal grandfather (Schleswig-Holstein). Also, my wife wants to trace Jewish relatives from eastern Europe.

    MyHeritage Live! provides an opportunity to hear both staff from MyHeritage and internationally renowned genealogists speaking about the latest techniques in researching my family history and what tools and features MyHeritage can offer in facilitating my research. It is also an opportunity to network with like-minded genealogists from around the world.

    My parents are both passed and they did not leave us much in family history. Actually when asked, they didn’t know much. I’d love to know how to find my way around the site and really find out more about myself and my families heritage. I am one of eight siblings and it sure would be something nice to share and pass on and on and on.

    March 17, 2019

    I am 67 y.o. and have spent
    Since my 21st birthday actively seeking my biological family. This past few years, I had DNA done with Ancestry and 23 and Me. It was not until My Heritage that the world opened up. I had a phone call a few months back from my 1/2 sister ( 1 of 3 on my mothers side) when the end of this long long journey, is now bringing me peace. I have yet to meet any of my maternal family in
    person . I have met an Aunt on my father’s side, she has different father then my father. Just still wanting to see and find everyone still living, so that I might be able to a family tree, not to mention health history to my 1st grandchild. No one that has not been adopted, will ever know the hole in my heart everytime in my life I answered the “health history” question with, “I
    have no information” made it bigger…every time I gave birth (4), it made my incompleteness surface. I want to learn as much as possible and maybe help others do the same.Maybe all of the few I have found would join me at your event.

    My mother died when young and I knew very little of her family and as it had turned out little of my fathers family. Genealogy has opened up my life to a history and peoples I didn’t know existed. It makes me feel that I live in a way through their histories. Events that seemed distant to me now seem to be very real because of what I have learned of my own family. I long to know more.

    This MyHeritage conference would be an amazing opportunity to look other people in the eyes and have face-to-face conversations about genealogy. While various websites have been very helpful, there just really isn’t anything like talking in person. The hands-on workshops also sound like a great way to work through questions about DNA and genealogy tricks.

    World War 11, Convict transportation to Australia, the settlement of the British Colony of Virginia, the Mutitiny on the Bounty and the whalers of New Zealand all impacted my family tree.

  • Usineviciu Iulia


    March 17, 2019

    Dear Madam, Sir,

    I’m a MyHeritage member who recently took a DNA test which is in the process of being finished, and I hope to discover though it that hidden part of my family, a big secret kept by my maternal great-grandmother.
    In fact I don’t know who my great-grandfather is ( my maternal grandmother’s father), because my great-grandmother gave birth to my grandmother while being 17 years old in 1907.
    It was such a shame in those years, so the family arranged for her to give birth in another country, and the child was registered under another family name, a woman was paid to do so I suppose, just to cover this embarrassing situation for the young biological mother.
    My grandmother was after a short time given to an orphanage, where she spent several years until her biological mother, now being married, came and “adopted” her at the age of 5.
    Having now her husband’s surname, she was able to give a “decent” family name to her child (my maternal grandmother), and the situation seemed to be normal in eyes of society…..
    The most painful thing for my grandmother, was the fact that her biological mother, even after being an adult, didn’t tell her the truth, covering it until she died in 1971.
    The only information my grandmother had was provided by her mother’s oldest sister, who admitted that she was indeed the biological child of her youngest sister, without telling her the biological father’s name.
    So, the entire lineage of four following generations doesn’t know where they come from.
    I would be very happy if I could participate to the My Heritage Conference in Amsterdam, this Fall.
    I could have the possibility to meet experts in genealogy and eventually receive help and knowledge for my further researches.
    Thank you very much,
    Sincerely yours,
    Dr. Iulia Usineviciu

    Finding out my background has made me understand what I see when I look in the mirror. But there are still many questions to answer such as: if my grandparents were foreign in their own country, were they victims of history?

    I have been researching my family history for years. MyHeritage has been the most important and efficient site for that research. I am sure the MyHeritage LIVE conference will give me a better overview and insight over current genealogical tools and possibilities. The exchange of experiences with other researchers is also a thrilling idea. I am looking forward to it!
    Best regards

    I would love to go to My Heritage Live as I am keen to unlock the secrets of my paternal side of which I know nothing and don’t really know where to start. My mother never told anyone who my father was and since my DNA test it is even more of a mystery as I didn’t turn out to be the ethnicity that I thought I would be! By going to your event I’m sure there will be many experts there that could point me in the right direction.

At Christmas my mum did a DNA test and now I am having to fathom out how to use plethora of tools to like the Auto Clustering with so many matches.

    Because I decided to research my ancestry as the time of the Brexit vote to see how European I am, and was delighted (and surprised!) to find that I am 100% European, of which I am 48% Scottish and Irish but 0% English. This intrigued me and I would like to know more.

    Through My Heritage I learned about my Sephardic Jewish heritage and when I discussed it with my parents, my Mom said that she had always known her father was Jewish but didn’t want to share it with her children or extended family. Wow, what a shock ! I would love to find out more, especially about those family members who died in the Holocaust. I am 74 years old and feel as if I am in a “rush” to learn all I can to share with my children. My Heritage has opened up my world !

    March 17, 2019

    My reason is to be with my sister of Italian/American ancestry. We both did our DNA though My Heritage. Sally is one of my seven siblings. All born in Waltham, Massachusetts and our dad Rocco was a US soldier and how I was left in New Zealand as an orphan in 1945 is another story. I was adopted and discovered at 8 years old I was adopted and all my adopted parents knew was my father was an American. My sister Sally and I found each other on this day one year ago and first met in July last year. My father passed over in 1998 and through all my years looking for him, I passed through Massachusetts three or four times. I found my birth mother in 1986 and spent the next thirty years chasing a ghost who existed but was not my father.

    March 17, 2019

    Thank you MyHeritage.com for the opportunity to be chosen to attend Roots Tech 2019. My sister and are working very hard to learn all we can about our heritage, and it is so exciting. Our parents died when we were teenagers in 1967 and, of course, genealogy was a word rarely spoken. As teenagers the last thing you cared about was learning or even hearing anything about the “old people dead or alive” in our family. What a shame that was, and the very few relatives I even know about are still alive. It took us until 1999 to really get fascinated by the adventures of our ancestors. To me attending Roots Tech 2019 would open up so much of the genealogy world, discovering relatives we didn’t even know existed and all the things we wished we had asked our parents about when they were alive. It’s so important to teach future generations what our heritage is all about. Thank you. Judith Sparrow

    I have become interested in discovering my ancestry in the past year. I did my DNA to help my Mom discover how much Native American we have. A few months later a second cousin reached out and asked why we didn’t know each other. My Father was adopted and the records sealed. Through DNA I have found my Father’s birth parents and have gotten to know my first and second cousins on my Father’s side. I was even fortunate enough to met his half brother shortly before he passed away in October 2018. I have a computer background and have become facinated by DNA. I really would like to learn more about the chromosomes and triangulated segments. I hope you select me to attend your conference for free.

    It is great to know how our roots penetrate in time like the real tree’s roots penetrate the soils!

    I found unexpected ancestry from all around the world.

    If people knew the extension of their ancestral roots, they would possibly be more humble with their appreciations of “race”, religion or culture, and would be more aware of the value of the family and the daily life of our mothers and grandmothers, and of the daily work of parents and grandparents necessary to take a child and a family forward. They are networks of hard work, suffering, joys and hopes of all of them, those that gather us in the here and now of our daily life !!!

    MyHeritage shows us that we are the result of huge networks of lives and hopes!

    I want to go! I love MyHeirtage. I have been on it for at least 10 years and compiled a family Tree of more than 8,000. My husband and I have taken the DNA test with MH. I am on the MH site every day, adding, correcting, editing etc. It’s also great that Geni is now consolidated with MH since I have at least 2,000 direct relatives in Geni and the information crosses over. My ancestry is 100% Askenazi whereas my husband is not Jewish and searching for his ancestors in Russia and Poland has not been easy. I attended the Jewish Genealogy Conference in Warsaw, August 2018, and traveled to all the cities, towns, villages in Poland and Slovakia where I have roots. Unfortunately, I am not an expert in either genealogy or DNA, so I have to spend a lot of time trying different methods for my research, trying to comprehend DNA matches etc. I would be delighted to win the tickets. I would love to meet your staff experts and meet all those for whom genealogy is a passion, history, and pursuit of the truth.
    Best and thanks.

    The Netherlands is one of those mystical places… stories from legends and operas and fairy tales take us there in our dreams. That is what genealogy also does for us … takes us back in time to meet and greet the family’s own fairy tales , legends and perhaps a troll or two. I would so love to immerse myself in genealogy in Europe. what an awesome possibility!

    I’m adopted and have been searching for my family for the last 2 years. Since I recently found a cousin (he’s not adopted) via my heritage (he took a test on a whim) and I won the lottery in a sense as it’s really lucky that I found him…it would have been almost impossible to find my family without him as I have no records whatsoever of my biological family. So going to this conference would be amazing to look into dna more and what it holds. Plus I live in Amsterdam!

    I just found my birth mother after searching for years. I am 68 and she placed me in adoption at 6 months. It turns out that she lives 90 miles from me. The remarkable event is that I was adopted in Frankfort, Germany by an American couple. She emigrated to Canada from Germany in 1952. She married an American she had met in Germany and they moved to Houston. I reunited with her this March (2019) as my travels and work ended in Lumberton , Texas which is 90 miles from Houston. I now have a new family. I have a baby sister, and brother also. Truly a miracle we were living so close with all of our travels.

Just takes time and patients to make sure you have your sources and I really do need lots of help. First working with one site has lead me to doing my DNA…..now I just need to join and join every one of those relatives as we all search for the joy of where and who made ME.

What I know about my dad, has come from other family members and my dad’s fraternity brothers. My mom too did not know her real dad. In fact, she didn’t find out until she was 30 years old, that her father was not her real father. My history is somewhat like putting together a puzzle. I have the border put together, but I am earnestly working on filling in those hard to fit pieces. I have learned a lot in the process of building my family tree and I owe a tremendous gratitude to My Heritage for helping me to complete my puzzle. I would love nothing more than to continue this journey in Amsterdam! I still have so much to learn!

    I need to learn more

  • Alicia Wilson


    March 18, 2019

    Because I would love to know more about my mother’s side of the family because my mom and her siblings were in foster care and I need to know about my relatives.

  • Roni Lasher

    I would like to learn to use My Heritage more efficiently, especially the DNA matches and I would like to connect with my grandfather’s relatives living in Amsterdam.

    Hi! I would love to go to MyHeritage live as I am a serious and devoted geneology enthusiast. My interest began with questioning my grandfather about our family history when I was child during our summer visits to Turkey. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been searching up and learning the histories of different ethnicities and their related geographies on a regular basis. I sincerely love the diversity on our planet, and the more I learn about genealogy the more I realize how we are all tied to each other one way or another. This sparks joy and understanding in me. I speak about genealogy and advertise MyHeritage to my friends and family so often that I can sense they’re a little fed up with me. But I will keep advertising! I’ve been persistent in trying to convince my sister to take MyHeritage’s test as well and have already recommended many friends to take it. I would love to meet other family history enthusiasts and chat with them, learn their backgrounds, and maybe even find commonalities or lineage ties. I majored in Biochemistry and took a year’s worth of genetics classes and would love to hear the wonderful speakers talk about genealogy. I know there is a lot to learn and I cannot wait to hear it all at the conference! Please please please choose me to attend this conference! Thank you!

    March 18, 2019

    I have never been out of the USA, and would very much like to go sometime before I die. I’m almost 50, raising my grandson by myself, and would love to be able to know how to search his background for him, since his bio-father is nowhere around.

    My mom had a heritage DNA test done a few years ago, so I know somewhat what we have on her side. But, my dad passed away in 2012, so the only thing I know about his side of DNA heritage is from what my uncle had done.
    Thanks for reading this..

  • Janette Moss


    March 18, 2019

    This is for my partner who knows very little about his heritage. His father was illigetimate, and his mother was Greek, but past that he knows nothing. No siblings and no children. I purchased a My heritage DNA kit which has revealed Greek, English, Western Asia, Nordic etc. To learn more would give him so much in his life, and he is extremely interested in learning and discovering as much as he can. Please consider him favourably. Thanks

  • Clare Coyle


    March 18, 2019

    I would love to go because I would love to learn more about my heritage and others who have the same desire and interests as my self….
    Also its my 50th Birthday then so no better time to recover the past and hand down the future 🙂

  • Anja Maria Svenkerud


    March 18, 2019

    I have a big family. In Norway and the US. Problem is that my parents kept me away form them growing up. I have been trying to get in touch with them all my grown up life. Sigurd, my grand aunt knew them , but she died a year after I connected with my dad’s side of the family

  • Pilla Leitner


    March 18, 2019

    I would LOVE free tickets to MyHeritage LIVE! I am on MyHeritage every day, and I keep developing new questions. How do I document my finds so that someone else can see them – besides taking a snip of the manifest or whatever? How do I let my DNA matches see my family tree so we can find common ancestors? How can I see their whole tree, for that matter?
    My second reason is that it is so inspiring to hear from the experts. I love finding out about the analysis techniques. I love tips on searching efficiently. I love hearing about what’s coming down the pike. And I love talking with other people who are obsessed with finding their ancestors!

  • Melanie Wayne


    March 18, 2019

    I’d love to meet people on a similar journey and discuss best practices, their struggles, how they over came roadblocks, to help with my research.

  • Gerry Lillicrap

    Would be awesome opportunity to gain more knowledge,. Meet others passionate about family history. Share ideas and insight, learn new tools.

  • Amy Nicorvo


    March 18, 2019

    I cannot find my Paternal Grandfathers heritage. I am so curious to find out where he is from. I am hoping to find the most help and different ways to figure all of this out when I do not have his or my fathers dna to use. Help!!!

  • Gary Goggans


    March 18, 2019

    Using MyHeritage, I’ve grown our family tree to over 25,000 people! The software is great as a desktop tool and allows me to share with family and known or potential relatives. DNA testing has inspired me to discover new branches in our tree and add even more. For my family, it all started with a 500+ page book that traced (most) of the descendants of the first “Goggans” to come to the USA around 1716. The book “Our Folks” by Maron Summer Eve was compiled by visiting courthouses and looking through their records in the 1970’s and ’80’s (imagine!). I have taken on the task of adding to that work with lines that were missed, plus all of the descendants that have been born since the book was published!

    I have created some of my own tools for deciphering DNA relative matches and their origins (including roughly a dozen adopted DNA relatives looking for clues) and now I’m excited to see what other tools MyHeritage and others have created to help with these tasks!

    Thanks!

  • Lisa Ramirez


    March 18, 2019

    This would be awesome! Considering that my ancestry it’s partly from Northwestern Europe. This would be totally helpful for me to be able to trace my family roots. my grandparents and my parents are both gone and this would be totally awesome

  • Brenda Daines


    March 18, 2019

    I have just reconnected with my sister after over 6 years and we are both interested in jumping into genealogy feet first and then start running. This would be the start for us. To be able to go together just makes in that much more awesome.

  • Elena Dritsas


    March 18, 2019

    Like so many others, I’m sure – I just don’t know where to go, what to look for, where to begin. My parents did not speak about their families. Where did they come from? What was their stories? I just don’t know and they took what knowledge they did have with them when they passed on. What VERY little I do know, I found through countless hours of online research which may or may not be true because I honestly dont know what I am looking for or how to find it. I would give anything and be forever grateful for the opportuntiy to really learn more about how to explore my ancestry and how to go about finding my unkonwn relatives.

  • Inez Hand


    March 18, 2019

    I personally became a MyHeritage member because my family was trying to find more information about an immediate relative, however, because of the search, I found so much more.

    Still learning the process and can’t believe the information that is available. Have found generations back to 1631. Verifying info carefully and WOW!

  • Antonette Coffee


    March 18, 2019

    I have my last grandparent on my father’s side that is going on 93 years of age. Being an African American with a trace of Native American makes it so challenging to follow my ancestry due to much movement of my ancestors whether by choice or not. I would love to trace her family tree lineage and share this information with her before she is called home and away from us. She is still in her right mind and mobile. Her request to ask me to do this about 30 years ago is been my prime objective. Along with my own curiosity of all my ancestors, I would love this opportunity to win the tickets to MyHeritage Live 2019.

  • julia Omari


    March 18, 2019

    I would love to win and take my mum with me. Thanks to the DNA test I took with MyHeritage we were able to find out who my mum’s dad is. My mum is now finding out that she has a whole new family to discover. We would love to win and learn from the experts. #

    I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints! In Sacrament meeting yesterday we had four people talk on the importance of family history. We all have relatives on the other side of the veil waiting for us to free them by doing their temple work here on earth. I’m so excited to get going on this important work. I know nothing about MyHeritage and would love to come to the conference in Amsterdam and learn how this can assist me in helping those who can’t do it for themselves!

  • Kathy Gallego


    March 18, 2019

    I would love to go to the conference. I just found out some ‘family information ‘ that I need to research. It would be great to work with everyone at the conference.

    Dear Sir of MyHeritageblog.
    I would like to hear genealogists share their techniques for researching utilizing both historical records and DNA.and to help people who come to my medicine office for medical advice
    The relevant Gazette was published on 20/9/2018. Sheet 4138, including Laboratory Genetics for Biologists, after 5 years of training.
    Both the conditions of admission to the specialization and the transitional provisions are in progress. In this last critical issue, the PanHellenic Union of Bioscientists has “opened” the consultation in order to reach corresponding positions in collaboration with the University Life Sciences departments.

    I would love to attend this. It would be a great experience for me. I am a adopted person and I am treated as a second class citizen in Ireland as I have no legal rights to my own origins under the Law of The catholic church and State to this day. This would open my options to connecting with other people in the same situation as me

  • Deanna Johncox


    March 18, 2019

    I would really like to go so I could bring my sister. We could learn alot and obtain the tools we need to research our ancestry and hopefully eventually my sister can find out who her father is or was. My sister wants to discover who her father is so badly. She has always wanted to know who he is. It’s only now that she’s been having some pretty serious health issues that she would really like to find out and learn more about the health on her father’s side of the family. I would love to be able to help her in that endeavor.

  • Cindy Martin

    My ancestors came from Finland so it would be exciting to travel to Amsterdam and learning about the DNA and attending the workshops.

  • Toni Moore


    March 19, 2019

    Hello,
    I have an two old pieces of paper I found in my mother’s things that I believe she had gotten from her Mother. My Mother started working on her family history, the old hard way. She worked on it by way of mouth, stories, letters and n calls. As I got older I began working on it and now in the computer age I have confirmed what she fond out years ago, and I have not gotten too much further than she did. I would love to go to the so that I could perchance get more answers to my family questions answered. My mother’s paternal side of her family were from Bergen Norway. I would have loved to have gone last year to see where they came from. I have never gotten a stamp in my passport, that would have been a great first stamp.

  • Ruth Boettcher


    March 19, 2019

    It is through MyHeritage DNA tests and family trees that I have made contact with lost and unknown relatives who after the breakup of the USSR left for Germany. That has led to brick walls coming down, only possible through MyHeritage. I still have brick walls existing in Eastern Europe. I have so much more to learn through use of MyHeritage resources!

  • Anthony Laws

  • Sousa Hari


    March 19, 2019

    I would love, love, love to come to MyHeritage LIVE and bring either my daughter or nephew, who are interested to find out more about their heritage.

    Both my ma and pa were brought up by their maternal families as they had ‘absent’ fathers, so my sister and I don’t know much about our paternal roots.

    I have a different body shape, hair/skin tone to my family, who are thick dark haired with skin that easily tans whereas I have fine red hair and pale skin that easily burns. My daughter has similar hair colour and skin tone to me.

    My DNA revealed I have a small percentage of Finnish and I’d love to find out whether my colouring might be a ‘throw- back’ from my Finnish heritage!
    How exciting that would be.

  • Iddo Oberski

    I’d e very interested in exploring genealogy in more depth with like-minded people in the very place I was born and where my ancestors lived and worked!

  • Mary Ann Liberati


    March 19, 2019

    Using DNA matches I was able to find my birth parents and family which was fantastic. However due to immigration I have little to no information about my maternal grandparents & would love to improve my limited knowledge of genealogy to reveal more of my past.

  • Anthony Hare


    March 19, 2019

    I had no knowledge of my lineage until I got involved in genealogy. I then became an avid researcher. Ultimately, I have discovered who my birth father was. Who my half-sister’s birth father and been able to solve a multitude of unknowns for many other individuals, that have asked me for help. I have progressed into integrating DNA into my research for verification and research purposes. Attendance at this prestigious conference would provide me with additional research tools through increased knowledge that I could use to help others. I do not get paid for my services they are solely pro bono.

  • Doree Bass

    March 19, 2019

    My ancestors left Denmark for America in 1862 after having lived there for several generations. I have learned my family extends into Norway and Sweden but have no connections nor do I have any idea how to search for them. I know this conference holds answers for me and would afford me the opportunity to visit the land of my fathers.

  • Veronica Berslter


    March 19, 2019

    I would love to attend as we recently had a contact made through DNA that brought tears to our eyes, hearts that felt full at long last and understanding about how worthwhile all of this is, for So many now and to come. We have so much to learn, we are not learned in this whole science . However would love to learn more than anything as its been life altering for us so far.

  • Eva


    March 19, 2019

    Is this competition for people from Europe only, or is it open for South Africans as well?
    I have Hungarian heritage from my Mom’s side, but do not know how to go about finding out about them. I can only go back as far back as my granny.

  • Vanessa Bunn


    March 19, 2019

    Being in the laboratory field for over 35 years, I am interested in learning g the science and tech behind the scenes in genetic testing.

  • Audrey


    March 19, 2019

    My husband has always been a “history” lover and has tried to follow his genealogy and has inspired me. It is interesting to see where we come from and who we are connected to. I have been interested to discover if my family is truly related to the “Wright” brothers. I am not able to follow back with confidence and want to “know” yes or no the question.

    March 19, 2019

    I don’t have family to ask and learn about my heritage anymore. So I purchased the DNA kit, my sister doesn’t talk to me anymore, been about 10yrs now (jealously issues, according to her
    ex-hubby) anyways, it would mean so much to me to have t experience. I’m a waitress, so obviously I don’t make enough for the ticket and international flight. Whom ever u do choose, hopefully, they have a similar story (at least) very deserving of this lifetime opportunity. Thank you

    March 19, 2019

    I got infected with the genealogy bug a few years ago, and now devote many hours a week trying to help unite adoptees with their lost family by analyzing dna test results. To this end it would be exciting to attend this conference to learn new tools. Also, through much research, it turns out that I’m related to Johan de Witt, Grand Pensionary of Holland, and would like to visit the places he lived.

  • Linda Jones


    March 19, 2019

    My family (it is said was from Switzerland.) I am unable to find records or the knowledge how to find my lost links. Family History Conference feels like it may be able to help. Who was my great grandfather and his family, who were his parents. Where are my descendants. Why did he come to Australia. My grandfather had to create a birth certificate due to unknown facts.

  • Lynn Parent


    March 19, 2019

    I have been researching my family for over 40 years. DNA is the best new thing that I have seen. I anticipate using it to climb more than one brick wall! I have never been to Amsterdam and can’t think of a better reason to go.

  • Diane Silcock


    March 19, 2019

    I would love the opportunity to go to MyHeritage LIVE because I’m passionate about my family’s history and I especially want to find out how not only to trace my ancestors but importantly find out who they were and what they did so that I can include that on the My Heritage site for generations to come, to read and enjoy. I would love to explore ways in which My Heritage could help with researching more individualised information from a time when there was no internet or computers, such as picking up information in old newspaper articles. I would also be excited to meet the team from My Heritage and other people from around the world with similar interests and a passion for their families’ histories.

  • Peter Herrera


    March 19, 2019

    My wife and I have ancestors from Europe and our two adopted boys are from Europe. Attending MyHeritage Live would provide a super opportunity to network and learn first hand about all of our diverse ancestral roots. We use MyHeritage software and are submitting our DNA to My Heritage. The conference would be a tremendous knowledge treasure chest!

  • Dredrick Cox


    March 19, 2019

    My partner and I have always wanted to learn where we came from, who we are and where to start. As Black people it’s been quite difficult to trace our “true” origins and given the tools, professionals and research we are hopeful to have answers. Though we were very skeptical , we ordered tests and can’t wait for the results to arrive. To learn how it all works and come together for all people to learn of themselves, their origin, first culture and over-all DNA make up would be beyond amazing for us. Great giveaway and services, thanks for the opportunity.

  • Mavis Edwards


    March 19, 2019

    We both come from broken families and we’re finding people through My Heritage-Thank You! To attend a conference would be AMAZING.

    10 years ago I lost my only son to cancer. After spending years doing genealogy, I lost all interest. I have recently started my research again, and am anxious to see all the current research available.

    I would love to get more information about my family ancestry in the Netherlands. I have been a novice family genealogist for over 10 years now and find all the stories and family connections so interesting. I have helped friends and family members locate documents and family members as well. I am addicted to learning about genealogy.

    I would love to have the opportunity to win. I have family on my fathers side that I have never met. My Father is deceased and I feel lost. Again, I would appreciate the chance to learning how I can do this.

    A great place to learn more about my heritage

  • Erin


    March 20, 2019

    This would be a great opportunity to find out more about my family. Through genealogical research and DNA testing I’ve found that the majority of my ancestors came from Northern Europe. I’ve also recently found out that I have a direct ancestor from The Netherlands, so it’d be a great opportunity to see one country my ancestors came from.

    March 20, 2019

    I want to interact with various researchers focused primarily on European heritage and a Netherlands location should provide a bevy of such historians.

  • Michele de Lucca-Lowrey


    March 20, 2019

    I just found out through the DNA test that my father is not who raised me. I am a retired teacher with a daughter turning 18 going to college. I am “invested” in learning more about how all this works, and eager to discover my European heritage “LIVE” and to discover as much as I can! Perfect timing in life and so excited. Already found the name of my dad who lived in Canada through a distant cousin at the time(1958) and now onto connections! The conference would be fabulous! – Michele from FL USA

  • Jose Ybarra


    March 20, 2019

    I just started this search, my nephew is the family historian and he convinced me to do a y-dna because I am my father’s last live son. He wanted to have his father’s Y-DNA but he is deceased, so I was the next best thing. Think he would enjoy going to this event. So Arnulfo Ybarra would be the second person to go on this trip if we won it. Thanks for your consideration.

    Sincerely
    Jose Ybarra

    It would be amazing to meet others who have experienced finding siblings or other close family through DNA testing. Id love to share my story, hear others and learn more about how MyHeritage can help me discover more about my ancestry. And lets face it, doing all this in Amsterdam would be icing on the cake!!

    As a teacher, conference time always came during an inconvenient time of the school year. Now that I am a retired teacher, I have the time and hopefully the opportunity to travel to the MyHeritage LIVE conference! I’m relatively new to the DNA side of genealogy but I’m a quick and passionate learner. Being immersed in a conference like this is just the ticket to jumpstart my DNA journey and dig into my family history! Thank you for this incredibly generous opportunity, MyHeritage!

  • Sue Elaine Brevoort-Gam


    March 20, 2019

    My family and I would love to go to Amsterdam to learn more about our family heritage and roots. What an exciting prospect to be in the homeland of my family’s heritage. Hoping I will win the tickets if not, I will have to find a way to get across the pond to visit Amsterdam and the incredible history that is my German/Dutch heritage to visit the communities where my family lived hundreds of years ago. My daughter was in Amsterdam twice once on a European Honeymoon and the second time for Thanksgiving as they loved the area so much and Amsterdam stood out over any European country and city they had visited while honeymooning. and she brought back so many books and memorabilia, I want to get over there someday soon myself.

    Both in my private life and in my work I encounter more often DNA research at MyHeritage for parentage, and in the process I get more and more excited about the increase of possibilities.
    I would like to gain new knowledge at the MyHeritage congres in Amsterdam and meet other fellow users there.

    March 20, 2019

    MyHeritage Family Tree Builder program has literally helped me compile THOUSANDS of my family members and ancestors into an easy to navigate genealogy map for my children and other family members to look through and learn from as well. It’s been one of my favorite hobbies that I’ve taken up and it’ll never get old, especially since family trees are constantly expanding.

  • Elizabeth


    March 20, 2019

    Having felt lonely and disconnected from the world, My Heritage has connected me to family I did not know existed. On my dads side of the family, I have 1 cousin that I knew of. Now, I know I have more distant cousins than I could ever imagine. Its amazing to know that I am connected to people all over the world, and I don’t feel lonely any more. Thank you for this service.

  • Charlene Harmon


    March 20, 2019

    I waited with bated breath for my results of my DNA sample! I was so thrilled and began my family tree and came to a place where I just didn’t know what to do with the additional people that had DNA that connected us. was just thinking the other day about MyHeritage and how I wish I understood more about the process and DNA so I could begin to gather the great info you give me and what exactly what to do with it. I have been so excited to find out I’m mostly Scandinavian. Wow, that never even entered my mind that would be the most in my DNA. Seems like I’m at a brick wall with my very limited knowledge of DNA and how to use it and read it. You send me information and I think “Well, OK, now what?”. For example, I am very perplexed that my brother and I that have the same parents are not exactly the same in DNA. I know that it has something to do with him be a male and me, a female. I know that I am not alone in my quandary. I would love to learn and do not have a great deal of time to school myself or know where I would learn this vast information.

  • Kevin


    March 20, 2019

    I hope to learn and understand more how to use this system, so I can be able to hopefully be able understand how to get in touch with family that I don’t know about. Very good experience I think this would be for anyone.

  • Mignon C. Fetterhoff


    March 21, 2019

    I’ve somewhat ventured in the past with genealogy and really didn’t venture further as the cost for someone to do this for me was expensive and I really didn’t know how to do this on my own. I did the MyHeritage DNA test just to see what nationality was in my background. Parents tell you this or that and I just wanted to know. My DNA result was a little shocking in some ways as most wasn’t what I was told growing up. I’ve had hits with names of people that could be related to me but, since the last names aren’t familiar, I’m afraid to respond. Heck, I’ve even thought of buying another DNA kit from another place just to see if I get the same results. This would be a lifetime adventure, a way of learning how to expand my knowledge of genealogy that I can share with my family.

    This would be the perfect opportunity for me as I will be living in Cologne Germany for two years.

    Who doesn’t want to collect the unforgettable memory by talking to other people from all over the world, sharing experiences, hearing and seeing incredible success stories and get super motivated to learn more how to increase my own family tree and heritage where one can be proud of! Cannot think of anything more interesting to do and that even in one of my favorite Dutch cities!

  • Pamela M Cline


    March 21, 2019

    Right now my family tree ends in a stump in Perth, Scotland. I can’t get any further than my 7th great-grandfather who lived there.
    Finding my ancestors in Germany has become impossible with the knowledge I now possess and recently I found that I probably have some Dutch relatives. Wouldn’t Amsterdam be the perfect place to confirm that branch of my tree?
    I want to learn MORE methods for ROOTing out my family tree and attending Root Tech 2019 wil teach me how.
    Seeing Amsterdam would be an amazing once in a lifetime event. I am 68 and I would love to bring my husband along with me for our 50th anniversary celebration. How amazing would that be?? We’ve never to Europe and that trip will help make my life complete. Amsterdam had been one of the cities we’ve longed to see.
    I hope to meet a lot of very very very nice people, and maybe a few relatives in Amsterdam. I sure hope you pick me!

    I have been interested in genealogy since 2006. I have gained some expertise with help from some tutors form local organisations at first and managed to build some simple family trees. I got the bug for genealogy so much that I am researching still some dates and events regarding my husband’s grandparents and ancestors besides my own 2 sets of parents ancestry and family trees ( not obvious as they are Europeens and not British ) . Over the years I have kept my keen interest in genealogy, mainly working by myself, always discovering new information thanks to the national archives and local ones online available from different countries.

  • Albert Verkes


    March 22, 2019

    Hello, folks at MyHeritage blog.
    My name is Albert Verkes and I immigrated from the Netherlands with my parents, who are no longer with us. I have not been back to my country of birth and I lived in Amsterdam from as a six yr old until I was 13 when I arrived in Australia. with the help from MyHeritage, I have been able to trace the Verkes family 300 yrs with your help. I ‘m now pushing 76 yrs of age and being a pensioner I am not able to spend any funds on research. I am also suffering from cancer and have had many procedures at the Peter Mac Cancer clinic in Melbourne, my home town. I would love to be given the opportunity to go to Amsterdam and eat a salted herring from a stall in that city and go to the conference. I still have cousins in The Hague, who will be happy to see me, and that is my birth city. I am very grateful for having viewed my family’s history but unable to afford the DNA test to see where our family originated from.

    As an adoptee who found both birth parents and have worked on those trees (Mother – English Scandinavian; Father – Dutch) and working on my adopted parents tree (both Dutch) I have found many relatives for both trees. I would like to delve more into the Dutch side of everybody involved. My adopted parents relatives are from Holland Michigan, with my mothers family being one that came over from the Netherlands with VanRaalte and are considered one of the founding families of that City. Thank you for this opportunity to get deeper into the family tree.

    March 23, 2019

    Residing overseas, opportunities to meet with family matches are endless. I have discovered, through Myheritage matches, many missing family links. I knew, for example, that I had two Great Grandfather Cartwright’s, but I was not aware that they were related (1600s Cartwright’s Uncles). I traced one back to Camden, England, who was honored with a statue capturing his likeness. My Cartwright family traces back to very early 1400s. The smart matches also permitted me to understand the last name variations, and how 2 people were actually the same person. Myheritage matches have been most helpful with expanding my family tree, and I would love the opportunity to visit Myheritage live in Amsterdam.

And a whole new reality was opened up, all my hopes and dreams, all of who we really are revealed. BUT here I am on the other side of the world and all my people are so out of reach. I have people in Amsterdam and every Scandinavian country. My haplo group is V and it is very specific. I am from there, I am not from here. And life is so short.. thankyou

    Hi there,
    I hope I am not too late for this.
    Since I received my DNA results with Family Tree, I am going crazy trying to find my fathers who once long ago left Europe on their way to Brazil. DNA results say they might have been from Western Europe. Switzerland, Germany, maybe the Netherlands, etc. I am so eager to find out about them. Who were they? What did they like to do most in life? Which were their struggles for survival those days? How did they make it alive?

    I have a deep desire to learn about my paternal great grandmother, beginning with her first name and maiden name. Without these, I’m unable to look up any information about her and her birth relatives. I’m hoping to speak with an expert who will be able to unlock the mystery of this part of my heritage. I’m also interested in finding out how to dispute some of the inaccurate, “whitewashed” information pertaining to my paternal grandmother that a cousin’s husband has posted in their family tree.

  • Renee Mitchell-Best


    May 1, 2019

    Some of my fondest memories are those of dad telling stories about our great great uncles – some of whom he never knew in his lifetime. Yes, like father like daughter. I evolved from dad’s assistant, as he needed someone to help him parse through records at the archives, to researching my mother-in-law’s Caribbean roots in the Saint Thomas public library during my honeymoon back in May, 1990. And almost thirty years after my honeymoon – about six weeks ago – my husband and I visited Saint Kitts where we were researching family roots. Remembering, celebrating and understanding our past has also played an important role in how my husband and I raised our now grown children. During their formative years, a myriad of social media systems became available. Some of these systems were dedicated to ancestral research and some were not. Nonetheless, they afforded access to both public and private familial, genetic and historical information and to other individuals seeking the puzzle pieces to solve their ancestral puzzles. Our children have come to know many of their ancestral stories just by helping to maintain some of our family trees on ancestry.com, for example. However, the one challenge I have dealt with first hand is balancing staying current regarding best sources and dealing with the emotions surrounding our ancestor’s tragedies, burdens and blessings. For example, keeping up with the latest and greatest data sources, while trying not to get depressed regarding the brutal murder of one’s great grandmother can be very challenging. I believe that attending MyHeritage LIVE will give me a reprieve from some of the mundane, sometimes gory details of family trees I am currently working on and afford an opportunity to stay current regarding best sources and practices and to gather insights from other individuals with similar interests.

    I come from a very large family with roots to Germany, Holland and England through the United States. This part of Ontario, Canada was developed by United Empire Loyalists, UEL, who were loyal to the King of England during the Revolutionary War and who were given land grants in Eastern Ontario as a result. So far, I have uncovered some ancestors back to the 17th century and I’m finding this very interesting and a lot of fun.

    This is a chance in a lifetime to learn more about genealogy and DNA from many professional people. I would love the opportunity to attend The My Heritage LIVE User Conference.

    Well, first off my lineage is from the Netherlands, the northern section, Bad Nieuweschans, and I would love a return trip. We were there a year ago and I would love a chance to learn more about my heritage, finding techniques for the various rabbit trails searching sometimes takes one on.

    I’m 66 years old….just met my two brothers and sister last summer. I have been searching my whole life. They did not know about me. One brother and his family live in Amsterdam! I would love to attend the event and see my newly found brother. Thanks

    First, I have Dutch and close by German heritage! I could do specific on site searches while leaning more how to make the most of my searches. I have worked without any help on my own genealogy, and various family members. I have 5 family trees with eager relatives to get information. I am stuck on several and what I find does not always match family legends and Bibles. One relative by marriage says she has Native American heritage, but I can’t find it. I would like to know definitively one way or the other. My husband is 100% Scandinavian, 99% Norwegian. The names make it hard to make sure I am correct. Some are not the typical —–son names. His family changed their name from Holen to Gilbertson when they came to America. Why, besides family legends and basically guesses. How to make sure I’m not lost. I especially would LOVE to determine the culture of our ancestors where they lived and the one they moved into. Why did they leave and come to America? How were they able to pay for it? Did they have to work for another person X number of years to buy land? I have traced one branch back to the town in Germany from which they immigrated. I still know nothing about why they left. Their church attendance made finding records easier than some. My family has ancestors that are designated “Pioneers in Florida” “Pioneers in Massachusetts” and I believe others. They came close to when the Pilgrams came, but were not Pilgrims. Were they also escaping religious persecution or were they starving, etc.? I have sent for my DNA match, but have not yet received the results. I feel I am almost out of what I know to do. I have a cousin I discovered doing genealogy who has gone to relatives to view Bibles, talk to the oldest relatives still alive about our ancestors. We found one secret that we had never been able to find. I have a rich (not in money) heritage, e.g. the Lees (not Robert E Lee). My cousins are related to the man who founded Mercer college. Their ancestor on the Mercer side actually predated the Pilgrims to set up the Church of England for the new settlers that were coming. So many roads, so little actual knowledge about what I am doing. I don’t have the finances nor really the desire to hire others to do my searches. I would love to truly know how to apply the knowledge and expertise available in this workshop.

    I have been chasing my Paternal ancestry since 1963. As I am 80 years old I am feeling the pressure to end my pursuit of ancestors. Perhaps by attending MyHeritage in Amsterdam I can discover whence came the McNamee line.

    I’ve never been to Amsterdam before, so that in itself would be a great opportunity. To couple it with a visit to the conference would just be the icing on the cake for me and my research.

    My ancestors who lived near Amsterdam and later came to the US in the 1700’s, I would love to visit the area where they once lived.

    Please let me win the free tickets. I would give anything to be able to attend this conference because it’s exactly where I believe all my ancestors are very near and I am very eager and motivated to learn more about where I came from

    Unexpectedly back in EU and able to attend the MyHeritage Live conference which I was disappointed to be missing out on after moving to Aust recently after almost 20 years in my favourite city of Amsterdam – living just around the corner from the Hilton. Really would love to attend and learn more re my heritage of Dutch Ancestors and my birth country.
