Win Tickets to MyHeritage LIVE, Including a Free Stay at the Iconic Hilton Amsterdam

Comments748

We’re gearing up for MyHeritage LIVE, our 2nd annual user conference, which is less than three months away! The conference will take place in Amsterdam on September 6–8, 2019. Join hundreds of family history enthusiasts from around the world for a weekend of illuminating genealogy and DNA lectures, as well as hands-on workshops.

Register now to reserve your spot

Amsterdam is a city steeped in history. Founded in the 13th century as a fishing village, it grew rapidly as a center of trade in the Middle Ages. With a current population of over 800,000, Amsterdam is home to many interesting history and art museums and the Amsterdam City Archives, the largest city archive in the world.

This year’s conference will be held at the Hilton Amsterdam, the hotel where John Lennon and Yoko Ono famously staged a “bed-in” for peace in 1969.

We’re offering one lucky winner the chance to win 2 free tickets to MyHeritage LIVE, plus a one night stay during the conference in the very same hotel room where John Lennon and Yoko Ono stayed in back in 1969.

In March of 1969, a white Rolls Royce drove up to the Hilton Amsterdam and John Lennon and Yoko Ono emerged. After booking suite 702, they proceeded to remove all the furniture from the room except for the bed. Thus began their famous “bed-in” for peace. This year marked the 50th anniversary of their week-long protest.

To enter our competition for a chance to relive one of the most talked about moments of the 20th century, all you have to do is tell us which historical aspect of Amsterdam you’re most excited to explore while attending MyHeritage LIVE 2019. Share your answers in the comments below.

One lucky winner will be chosen at random on June 30, 2019. The winner will receive one night’s accommodation in suite 702 at the Hilton Amsterdam and 2 free conference tickets to MyHeritage LIVE (valued at over € 1500).

Good luck!

    My late husband was a Navy man and we lived in Scotland for three years during his tour of duty. Our twin sons were born there in 1973. They of course have dual citizenship and one spent his honeymoon touring Europe. Being parents of newborn twins and having one child 2 years old restricted the possibility of further touring Europe due to finding someone to look after them. Raising three children under 2 years old was more than a full time job. My husband’s Naval service took him away a great deal as it was during the Vietnam Conflict further keeping us homebound. I would love to see Amsterdam since we never got to when we lived in Scotland. My husband passed in 2006 with cancer so I am a widow. I have never remarried. I am a 69 year old retired nurse. My most dearest wish would be to see the area where Anne Frank lived and grew up in. I read the book in history many years ago and would love to see the area.

    Got to be Anne Frank’s house. We’re losing so many people who can really remember what life was like during those days of tyranny. We all need to visit such places and think.

    Amsterdam has so many historical places to visit, but there are three that seem most poignant and must-see. The Portuguese Synagogue, the Homomonument, and the Anne Frank House all remind us of the results of oppression and atrocities. While I love museums of art and beauty, I feel we need to remember so we never repeat.That’s why I would especially want to visit these historical places.

    I would see where my Grandfather was during WW2. As a chaplain in the Canadian military he was there with the allied forces. I would also like to see Anne Franks house and reconnect with a friend I have only seen once in the last 22 years.

    I’ve never been to Amsterdam. If someday I’ll go there, the very first things I’d be interested to see would be an amazing city’s architecture, the Amstelpark and definitely the incredibly old botanical garden Hortus Botanicus.

  • David Kathan


    June 14, 2019

    I would love the free tickets and one-night stay in that room. The historical spot I would like to visit is the movie theatre where I watched Easy Rider when I was 14 (note that I did not meet the age restriction, but I looked older) while visiting Amsterdam as part of a study group in 1970.

  • David Oseas


    June 14, 2019

    June 15, 2019

    Amsterdam’s artistic history is of particular interest to me, and I’d make time to visit its museums to draw inspiration from masters of the past. I’d also enjoy the opportunity to make new memories … memories from meeting new friends and fellow genealogists and family historians.

  • Brandt Gibson

  • Pam Kalbfleisch


    June 15, 2019

    Compared to how young my country is, the old history of Amsterdam appeals to me most. Anything 17th century or earlier would pique my interest. That, and to watch some Dutch field hockey club matches!

  • Yoram Igael


    June 15, 2019

    I would like to see as much as possible museums and famous places in Amsterdam, the canals, the markets, the restaurants and more

  • Emma Gilheany


    June 15, 2019

    I would love to stand in awe and wonder and admire the outstanding architecture, whilst envisaging going back in time, to what it was once like being an inhabitant of old Amsterdam…..dreaming…..

  • Cindi Foreman


    June 15, 2019

    As a genealogist AND an artist, I would love to visit the Rijksmuseum (a museum that wants you to put your camera aside and sketch their collection instead https://hyperallergic.com/256575/rijksmuseum-asks-visitors-to-stop-taking-photos-and-start-sketching-the-art/ ) as well as visit (and sketch) the architecture all over the city!

  • Krista Noble


    June 15, 2019

    Like many others I’d want to explore Anne Frank’s house. Her diary had a huge influence on my childhood understanding of fairness and sacrifice.

  • Marcy A Hardin


    June 15, 2019

    An amazing city. Returning after 50 years will be an adventure in itself – my age now and the changes that happen to any city. I’ve pulled out my souvenirs, pictures and brochures of museums, Anna Frank house and scenery.

  • Allen Herrod


    June 15, 2019

    I would love to visit the Anne Frank house to see where she spent 2 1/2 years with her family hiding from Nazi persecution. I would also love to visit the Rijksmuseum.

  • Michelle Collins


    June 15, 2019

    For me it’s the food, the bikes, the canals and the architecture. Lovely city.

  • Marianne Szabo


    June 15, 2019

    I have Dutch ancestors and Amsterdam has been on my bucket list for years. Aside from genealogy, I’m most interested in the museums.

  • Raelene Poustie


    June 15, 2019

    My husband and I would love to go and see ( and stay in ) suite 702 in Hilton Amsterdam and of course Anne Frank house. But the historic buildings such as The Begijnhof of Amsterdam and The Wooden House would be amazing to see.

  • chet szerlag


    June 15, 2019

    In terms of exploring historical Amsterdam, following are my thoughts:

    1) I think a private tour of the Rijks museum would be at the top of my list….
    2) I would also like to do a boat tour of the canal system if that is possible, and
    learn more about how the city keeps the water at bay, so speak!

  • susan lozinski


    June 15, 2019

    I would love to see the Nieuwmarkt!

  • Mary Scrudder


    June 15, 2019

    The archives would be my first choice of places to visit. (I’ve got dutch heritage and it would be exciting to research from the country’s perspective)

  • Ricki King


    June 15, 2019

    The house with the noses. I find it interesting they who the people are from a house built in 1600’s. Along, with canals.

  • Ralph W


    June 15, 2019

    Sounds great. Would like to go back and visit the places i visited 59 years ago, including Anne Frank place.

  • margaret Walz


    June 15, 2019

    Although I am interested in ANYTHING Beatles, the Ann Frank House and all of Amsterdam is a place I have wanted to visit ever since I read The Diary of Ann Frank (age 12). The MYHeritage Live conference is full of wonderful speakers, some of whom I have wanted to hear for a long time. Thank you for this opportunity to enter the contest.

  • VIRGINIA MILLER


    June 15, 2019

    I would look forward to the Rijksmuseum and learn about the canals & windmills. But most of all the opportunity to meet others interested in genealogy. I have been listening to the Genealogy Guys Podcast and am in the process of figuring out how to transfer my GEDCOM from ancestry to myheritage. There is so much to learn!!!

  • Cindy M


    June 15, 2019

    As A City Planner, I love both historic and ultra-modern architecture. If I could only pick one building, it would be the Rijksmuseum. My second choice would be a historic church – most likely the De Krijtberg – Sint Franciscus Xaveriuskerk

  • James Walz


    June 15, 2019

    Why wouldn’t one want to visit Amsterdam? Ann Frank’s house, The Van Gogh Museum, and of course, Room 702!!!!

  • Barbara Coulter


    June 15, 2019

    Anne Frank House. Such an important part of our more recent history.

  • matt walz


    June 15, 2019

    Amsterdam should be on everyone’s “bucket list.” Ann Frank’s House, The Van Gogh Art Museum, the tall people, and of course Room 702 are my top priorities for visiting Amsterdan.

  • Cathy


    June 15, 2019

    Well, if I were to win tickets to MyHeritage LIVE, I would want to visit the Rijksmuseum. The museum reflects the many Dutch painters’ works throughout history. Additionally, I would like to visit the city of Delft, where the famous Delft pottery is made. And while I realize that tulips will not be in bloom at the time of the conference, I would love to see where they are farmed.

  • Michelle Sproson


    June 15, 2019

    I would love to see EVERYTHING! The history-the beauty and the culture.

  • Ruth


    June 15, 2019

    I would love to see the tulip fields and everything Holland is know for. In the 80’s I visited the Anne Frank house, but I would love to visit everything with my new spouse. We recently married on our 22nd anniversary.

  • Joanne Krajeski

    June 15, 2019

    Ann Frank house and I would love to take a canal tour, to get an overview of the city.

  • Lois Wilson


    June 15, 2019

    The museums

  • Terri L Sturgill


    June 15, 2019

    Much can be said about a country’s history by seeing how its leaders lived and recorded it. The Royal Palace would have to be my 1st choice pick in Amsterdam. Same reason, I would pick museums for my #2 priority.

  • Peg Walz


    June 15, 2019

    I want to see Ann Frank’s House, Room 702, Van Gogh Art Museum, and anything related to WW II.

  • Carol


    June 15, 2019

    I have spent much time unearthing my own ancestry which is primarily Norwegian, French, Irish and Scotch. I have spent no time on my husband’s ancestry, and would be thrilled to do it where his ancestors lived. My husband’s grandfather left Amsterdam at age 17 with no money in his pocket and no other family members. To be able to meet his relatives would be incredible.

  • Carole Walsh


    June 15, 2019

    I would like to visit Amsterdam in order to visit the museums and learn about the history of the area. Our family has numerous ancestors from the Netherlands and we would like to learn more about the culture and people who reside there.

    Begijnhof, Amsterdam

  • ROB WARTHEN


    June 15, 2019

    The historical aspect of Amsterdam I wish to explore is the simple architecture and beauty of the engineering feats that makes Amsterdam what it is.

  • Norah Schneider


    June 15, 2019

    I studied the Holocaust for 9 years during my PHD and wrote my doctoral dissertation on it. Amsterdam is one of the cities on my list of places to visit to follow in the footsteps who are no longer hear to tell their stories of what happened to them. I want to go to the Jewish ghetto, the cemeteries, the synagogues, the Anne Frank house, and walk where those before me walked.

  • Brook Logan


    June 15, 2019

    I’ve never been to Amsterdam so I want to see it ALL!!!

  • Nita Tellez


    June 16, 2019

    As many other applicants have likely chosen, I would like to be able to visit the home where Anne Frank hid during WWII. I, myself, am not Jewish but I am very interested in the plight of the Jews during and after the war and have read several books on the subject. It all started with reading “The Diary of Anne Frank” many years ago.

  • Tracy Collins


    June 16, 2019

    I would love to take walking tours around Amsterdam’s neighborhoods to learn more about the history and see the architecture and canals.

  • Iva A Green


    June 16, 2019

    I would be most excited to explore the spectacular 17th century architecture and the city’s infrastructure. The churches, and the history that goes with them. Have you ever looked at a beautiful building and wanted to know more? If those walls could talk, what would they say? It could be the smallest house in town. An old abandoned building. It could be a building that has been revitalized over and over? It is the building that just calls out and says, “I want you to know me!” Who has lived inside those walls? What is their story? How did they live? What was their role inside this beautiful historical city? Did they change the lives of many? Did they just survive? What is their story? Can it be told? But just as nice, I would enjoy visiting historical museums like the famous van Gogh and Anne Frank, and amazing works of art. What if the small off the grid museums or a small off the grid cemetery? How about looking to the landscape and seeing the beautiful landscape? Such beauty! Such amazing history! Such beauty! A wonderful place to explore!

  • Thomas Vilfroy


    June 16, 2019

    Definitely the Anne Frank house for sure. Visit the historical canal systems that where used and historic protected in certain parts. And no trip to Netherlands would be complete without visiting the Lego plant!

    June 16, 2019

    Definitely Anne Frank House, I live in New Zealand so would be the trip and opportunity of a lifetime.

  • Pam Holland


    June 16, 2019

    I’d love to visit the National Holocaust Museum in Amsterdam. I like their description that they tell “a story of exclusion, of persecution and murder, but also of rescues, survival, and solidarity.”

  • Peggy Morphew


    June 17, 2019

    An ancestor on my husband’s side was born in Amsterdam & relocated to New York, USA about 1640. Would love to visit archives, the area of his birth & of course other wonderful sights while there.

  • Patricia Lowe


    June 17, 2019

    My best friend from our college years and I would live to explore her Dutch heritage.

  • Vivian Kermon


    June 17, 2019

    Wow. I don’t think there’ll be enough time to do anything else but attend as a much of the conference as possible! But there is so much to do and to see here to feel the sense of history so relevant to genealogy.
    Anne Frank, the canals, Delft, the royal palace. So, so much.l What an astonishing opportunity to see and feel the heartbeat of My Heritage and the heartbeat of this beautiful historic city!

  • Doug Robinson


    June 18, 2019

    I would love to attend the conference, but more than that follow up on the history of Dutch settlement in ‘upstate’ New York. The great unexplored history of the Dutch in New York State from the Hudson Valley to the sale of farmsteads in Western NY by the consortium of Dutch doctors as land speculators. I have ancestors from the Troy area who moved west on the Erie Canal when it opened.

    While attending MyHeritage LIVE 2019, I am excited to visit de Oude Kerk, a church that dates back to 1306. This church has been front row, eye witness as hundreds of years of history unfolded. I am so excited to see the building’s architecture and stand where so much history has been made.

    I have always wanted to see the canals of Amsterdam and cruise on one of the small canal boats. Also – the Dutch painters led the way for so many other artists – would love to see the art collections in the city.

    This will not be my first visit to Amsterdam and I hope its not my last. In the spirit of Peace evoked by John & Yoko, I would like to revisit the wonderful waterways and some of the museums and art galleries. Last time my souvenirs of Amsterdam were a pair of diamond earrings as most of the world’s diamonds are cut in that city. I wonder what treasure might find to bring home this time?

    My family tree includes a number of early religious reformists who arrived in Massachusetts in 1630 as a group. Their family had connections with other believers who spent time in Holland before leaving Europe to find greater religious freedom. I would enjoy the opportunity to do on-site research to add depth to my understanding of both the movement and my own family members. Seeing a location brings family and place names to life.

    The Zuiderkerk, not only because Rembrandt attended there and Monet painted it, but because of the research I’ve done “over the brick wall” for my Lutheran Timpa family from Lithuania. They simply appear in Lithuania out of nowhere in the early 1800s. I’ve looked for other pockets of that rare surname elsewhere in Europe in preceding years and found one that attended the Zuiderkerk 1665-73 when their Timp/Tijmp children were baptized there.

    The historical aspect of Amsterdam I’d be most excited to explore while at the MY HERITAGE conference would be the Rembrandt House Museum. I have always adored Rembrandt and I’d love to see the home where he lived and worked and developed his distinct style, a home that is so emblematic of Amsterdam’s unique architecture.

    Firstly I would definitely beg, steal or borrow to extend my stay. I am dreaming of losing myself in the Rijks Museam for more than the “Nagwacht”, then onto the Van Gogh Museam. I shall take a rest in Vondelpark and then onto Leidseplein for a spot of shopping. I shall have to go on a cruise on the canals to rest my hurting feet. I have a dream of myself strolling under the trees along the “Grachte” with the wind blowing in my hair. How I wish the tulips could still be blooming in Keukenhof, but Zaanse Schans with it’s impressive windmills would still blow my skirt up. I am a descendant of the Huguenots, most of whom embarked from Amsterdam on their epic journey to the Cape of Good Hope. I would like to retrace their steps at the harbour from where they departed from Europe, leaving their own families and my forefathers behind. And of course the archives!

Holland even has Rembrandts” has always intrigued me.

    Amsterdam is were it all started for me and genealogy. Born down the street from the hotel, I have been searching for the last 50 years for family history, genealogy and relearning my Dutch. So the most historic part of Amsterdam for me is to walk from the Jacob Obrechtstraat past het Concert Gebouw, across the Rijksmusuem square to the Pieter de Hoofdstraat where my elementary school was. It was a real experience then and it would even be a greater thrill this year! It will be 65+ years since I made that walk the last time. The Nightwatch is awaiting in the Rijksmuseum!

    June 27, 2019

    I was looking for my husband’s adopted out sibling, and with DNA, I found the father who raised him was not his real dad. It was quite a surprise at 73 to find that he was very much from Amsterdam from the Tillman, Tilemam and other spellings. Barney Tillman his bio dad owned 4 motorcycle dealerships in Los Angeles and my husband Charles Weyant was raised just 45 minutes from his home. It is quite apparent that Barney never had a son and always wanted one to work in his stores. As it is my husband is a motorcycle guy too and has 4 of his own. There is one sibling that he has met, Debra Tillman one of three daughters of Barney Tillman and the only one left in the immediate family. I also have some DNA relatives that came from Netherlands, so it would be very exciting to see where our lives began from the Tillman, and my family. My heritage has been very helpful, while we figure it took me about 900 hours to find my husbands deceased father. A very bittersweet experience, but happier to find out the truth, and meet a new sibling. We would cherish this opportunity. Charles (Chuck) and Peggy Weyant

    My favorite aspect to explore is the area where Anne Frank hid during the invasion of the Nazis during World War II. Her story of courage, brave friends who helped their family, and her last days would be improved for me by actually observing the situation she and her family endured in hiding as Jews wanted by the Nazis.
    In addition, my father was there in World War II as part of the Canadian Army who eventually helped to free Amsterdam from the Nazis.

  • Melinda rackham


    June 27, 2019

    Foe me Amsterdam is an energetic city of exchanges. I can almost feel centuries of rumors and trade tips replicating up and down the coffee house lined-canals as exotic goods were bought and sold, and philosophies and scientific inventions passionately debated. It’s a centre of diversity, tension, tolerance and freedom.

  • Joan Kaaihue


    June 27, 2019

    My husband and I are now senior citizens and haven’t traveled much because we were raising 4 children. Two were his from a previous marriage and two were mine from a previous marriage and they all ended up in puberty at the same time. Trust me, it was a zoo!!!! Also, we were both in the Army (that’s where we met) at the same time which gave us even less time to do anything with the kids or with each other. We have now been married 41 years. While in Amsterdam we would like to enjoy a canal trip, visit museums about Rembrandt and enjoy his masterpieces and , enjoy their restaurants and any special events. Of course we would like to visit The Hague and Leiden and the home of Anne Frank and not to miss any festivals they might be having. I will keep my fingers crossed. How wonderful it would be.

    I’m always a bit excited by De Nieuwe Kerk (The New Church) because it’s actually from the 15th century, but it was new then. This church is one aspect of a long multi-religion tradition in Amsterdam.

    I have a lot of personal family history in Amsterdam, in addition to attending the conference I’d love to pursue my investigation of that.

    Having been born in the 1950s, my husband and I grew up loving the Beatles, so we would both be thrilled to be able to spend a night in the hotel room that John Lennon and Yoko Ono shared. Not to mention the fact that neither of us has ever been to Europe and we would love to experience that as a pre-50th wedding anniversary trip! The Anne Frank museum, tulips, and all the other wonderful things that Amsterdam has to offer would just be icing on the cake!

    Exploring my family’s history. I have no information on my father’s side past his parents, who were both from what was then Hungary (today, Ukraine) … but it’s been passed down through the generations (and our original surname seems to support) that the family originated in The Netherlands.

  • Clifton Ball


    June 27, 2019

    The information I have gathered appears to be that Scotland King John’s son William de Balliol (1251-1357) had a son Lord William Galloway Baillie of Hoprig (1275-1357) who married Elizabeth Marian Wallace, the daughter of William Wallace, Braveheart, and I am a descendant of their son Lord Richard.(1345-1390). The lineage began with barons in the French Flemish town of Bailleul in the area of Normandy on the border of Belgium. Centuries later my father would participate in the invasion on D-Day at Normandy near his ancestral home to free the French, without even knowing it the significance of where he was. Through My Heritage I have traced my line back to John de Balliol (930-956) of Baileul-en-Vimeu, Abbeville, Picardy, France which is about a 3 hour train ride from Amsterdam. My goal at My Heritage Live would be to continue my search in the local area and visit the region where so many of my ancestors lived.

He never would speak about his real family and even went so far as to take the name of his adoptive family and took the info to his grave. The info gained through Heritage has been invaluable.

To see a little of what they might have seen, to stand in the rooms Otto, Peter and Margaret stood in would be an experience of a lifetime. To top that off with a night where John and Yoko had their sit in would certainly give me something to tell the grandchildren.

    With the Ancient History it has to
    Offer in the atmosphere it holds

    I am an adoptee and 1/2 Askenazi Jewish – Eastern European and 1/2 African American My daughter recently joined a conservative synagogue here in NYC. and I found a 1/2 brother on my Jewish Mother’s side who is a Lubavitcher rabbi in Europe sent by the Grand Rebbe Schneerson. I must say without a doubt the Anne Frank House. And the Portuguese Synagogue are a MUST GO. MUST DO! Also my daughter and I are very physically active gym rats so without a doubt we’d rent those bikes and ride all those bike lanes like we do home in NYC. If time permits we would without a doubt take a night canal dinner cruise. It’s a family activity we do in NYC and in Amsterdam it would be a fabulous way to get a feel for the city with the night lights

    I could say that I would like to win because I would like to see the Ann Frank house, the Van Gogh museum, the palaces or to soak up the history of old Europe …but who’s kidding who…it’s to visit the Heineken Brewery and the free beer tasting.

    In a remarkable coincidence, I would love to see the room where John and Yoko did the Bed in for Peace. Although this was an action from left field, it impacted heavily on my life to see a person with such fame stand up for peace. It instilled in me a spirit of non-violence which I have followed from my teenage years into my 60’s and which I have spread to others.

  • Gillian


    June 28, 2019

    For us it would definitely be the Anne Frank monument and museum. We lost a lot of family to the 2nd world war and with it being her 90th birthday it would be a great way to celebrate the gift she left the world at such a young age. My daughter is 9 and has studied the topic both at home and in school. She is moved and inspired in equal proportions and I would love to explore this topic with her more. Also my daughter loves genealogy and the work we have done on our family tree to date has been joyous and often eventful. It is a job I hope she will continue and share with her children.

    I would love to visit the Van Gouh Museum in Amsterdam which contains the largest collection of Vincent Van Gouh’s artworks in the world. Van Gouh has always been my most favorite artist whom I studied 50 years ago. To attend MyHeritageLIVE, relive John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s staged “bed-in”, and explore this museum would be a dream come true.

    Honestly I know very little about the area. I was raised with nine siblings and a single mother so traveling was not something we could afford. I have worked all my life and raised my two children after divorce. I am very interested in DNA research and how to best use the dna kits to make my family tree complete. I started in 2014 with an dna kit and found out my father was not my father at 58 years old. Once I confirmed with his three other children through dna kits, I am blessed with 3 more blood siblings. They are welcoming and loving people. I not for the new dna technology I would not know who I really am, who I look like and why my eyes are brown, where my ears, lips, chin ,eyebrows come from. My personality sense of humor . All from my father I look so much like pictures of him and my son has his height and build. Dna changed my life and opened a whole new world to me . I went from a poor family all my life to finding out I descended from royalty and brave people that came to the US as endured servants something I had never heard of before. I think all high schools should do an ancestry course instead of history of people they could care less about and do their own story.
    Having men like Daniel Boone , people that traveled and settled land in America for the first time. Fought in all the wars . It has raised me up I feel worthy of being called an American now.

    If I win tickets to Amsterdam, there are so many potential places to see, so many beautiful sites! But to pick one for the purposes of this contest, I’d have to say my #1 choice would be Museum Willet-Holthuysen. I LOVE seeing stately old homes, and imagining life in them when the residents were there and entertaining, or just home by themselves. It looks absolutely gorgeous! The details! Like ceilings, windows, and what about the gardens!

    I had the opportunity to visit the Netherlands as a youngster at YMCA camp in 1954. We had a one day excursion to Amsterdam, which was in no way sufficient to see everything we wished to see. I’d love just strolling the boulevards, checking out the architecture and visiting the Riksmuseum, of which I’m a member but have never had the opportunity to visit.

    The Van Gogh Museum could be tops on my list but really need to explore the possibilities more. One thing I vividly remember is singing the song “In Amsterdam” or “A-Roving” in elementary school. That song has stuck with me throughout my 70+ years. Funny what memories remain. It would be nice to see the country that inspired that school-age song.

  • Angela Fanos


    June 28, 2019

    Since Amsterdam is almost 1000 years old there is so much I would love to learn and see. Out of all what Amsterdam has to offer, the most intriguing would have to be The Anne Frank House. For several years Anne and her family hid within the concealed apartment in de Jordaan, before being caught by the German authorities. I would love to see the secret sanctuary that was converted in to a museum which commemorates the Frank family and other victims of the Holocaust.

    Visiting the Netherlands has always been a wish I have carried since childhood. I’m very drawn to the culture and all that it includes. I want to walk the streets and meet the locals, see things through the eyes of Van Gogh and hopefully contact relatives that share my ancestry. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest. Blessing for an awesome conference!

  • Margie Braidfoot


    June 28, 2019

    The historical aspect I would be most excited to explore in Amsterdam is my personal historical aspect!! My father was born in the Netherlands and lived in Amsterdam during WWII. Like many others, they saw their neighbors gunned down in the streets, and hid Jews in their home. As a boy, he went on bike rides with his dad so as not to arouse the suspicion of Nazi soldiers as they delivered messages to Corrie ten Boom for the Dutch Underground. My grandfather received a commendation from the Queen after the war and was honored as Righteous Among the Nations in the gardens at Yad Vashem, Israel. Obviously, this had a big impact on my family, and it would be an opportunity of a lifetime to explore the city and places where my dad spent his childhood, as well as to research his family history and perhaps even visit some of his relatives while I am there!!

My great grandparents were from Poland and I had relatives in the camps. My grandfather also served in WWII. I am a history loving person and this would be a great thing to have said I was able to do in my life.

  • Alexis Pottinger

    June 28, 2019

    where do you enter to win the trip and the two tickets? I have recently found that I have ancestors from Holland – and would love to find more information! They were from Egelsbach, Hessen, Deutschland, I have no idea where that is, but I’m sure there would be information venue’s in Amsterdam where I could find out something! I could really get excited to win! Otherwise, I could never afford to attend, in fact at this time I cannot even afford a new My Heritage subscription…;-( I traveled through Amsterdam, many years ago, when I was young and didn’t know my ancestry was anything but German (I did get to meet and have continued in those friendships, of several German Cousins – they have come to America to visit, but I can’t afford to revisit them….

  • John Rose


    June 28, 2019

    One can’t help but think of Anne Frank when thinking of Amsterdam. This leads me to the Holocaust Memorial Walk, which includes some of the things from Anne Frank’s life. I have taught drafting in the past during my 28 years (so far) as a teacher, and would love to see the architecture there as well. If it would be possible to see the actual place where she and her family stayed hidden during their ordeal, it would be something I have wanted to see for a long time.

  • Eleanor Grande


    June 28, 2019

    I’d love to see the Anne Frank House and Museum, which I saw many years ago as a teenager. I had read her diary but still was not familiar with the history of World War II and the Holocaust as it applied to the Netherlands. Also, it’s the 350th anniversary of Rembrandt’s death this year, and the Rijksmuseum and a number of other venues are observing it with a huge exhibition, performances and other celebratory events. I would love to look for any remnants of 17th century Amsterdam, as that was the city’s golden age, its economic, political and artistic Renaissance.

There’s only been one breach and devastating flood, a fluke of nature in 1953, since the dams were built in the 1600s. Further sea defenses were built in addition in the 1970s.

    There is so much of general interest and of genealogical interest but what I most want to visit is the Amsterdam Stadsarchief.

This would be a good chance to see some of the records that have not yet been digitised and are not available online.

    I would love to visit the Kuikenhof gardens and meander along the flower beds but as for historical interest, definitely the canal ride and looking at the fascinating architecture. I just love those narrow buildings. And boat rides are great fun too. I’ll be sure to check out the oldest building, the most narrow and also look out for Anne Frank’s house. (of course,right?)

    My Dad flew the first supply plane into Arnhem during Operation Market Garden and I would love to see Holland and meet the people he helped to regain their country back. Unfortunately he passed away in 2013 but to go over and see places like the Tulip gardens and Anne Frank’s house would help to bring him back closer to me.

    My mother and I traveled to Amsterdam in 1973. So long ago. To go again would be a dream, and is on my bucket list. But do I have to choose just one place to visit? Oh, but I can’t!…The International Flower Auction, Anne Frank House, Diamond Market, the Royal Palace, the historic churches and the Street Markets. Please choose for me.

  • Susan Cameron


    June 29, 2019

    Stuck for choice in historical Amsterdam. Should it be the Oude Kerk, the 13th century church of St Nicholas with its reformation from Catholic to Protestant and 3 major restorations? Perhaps the three 17th century fortification towers along the Singel and Kloveniersburgwal canals? Then there’s the 15th century Nieuwe Kerk, next to the Palladian style Royal Palace. Of course, Rembrandt is buried in the early 17th century Westerkerk but there’s his home too (now a museum) and let’s not forget his masters, or Van Gogh’s in the Rijksmuseum.
    I’ve not reached the 18th century yet and already I’m stuck for choice.

    Our daughter did four years of post doctoral research at the University of Leiden before moving to Oxford to continue her research in the eradication of brain cancer cells. Due to her enormous student loan debt, my wife and I were not able to visit her in Amsterdam and to experience the many cultural and historical features she described to us. She also met a Dutch fellow who is a PhD and who now has a Fulbright Grant for a year in the USA. His Dad lives in Amsterdam and has advised us we are welcome to visit with him. I personally am interested in the several groups of Protestants who lived in NL before migrating to America and in visiting where they lived. Our daughter is adopted but in 2018, I discovered a biological daughter which was a jolt at age 75! For these reasons the conference in Amsterdam would be most exciting to my wife and I and permit us to fulfill a bucket list wish that now appears otherwise unattainable.

  • Renata J Entley

    Wow what an amazing opportunity! I have never had roots in my family. It split up when I was very young. I have been on my own. There’s nothing more interesting to me than the people from the past and the history they’ve made. I love old photographs and buildings. I found a box that was my grandmothers that I never met, because she died the day my mother was born. It was full of treasures about her. She was on a bus, the first bus full of women with a chaperone that traveled the country as a college. I think it was called the Omni bus. She seem to be very independent for someone in that age. I would love just discover more and more details about who I am and where I came from. It is wonderful and exciting to me.

    The wondrous thing about DNA is how connected it can make you feel with parts of the world that, on paper, have nothing to do with you.

    Through MyHeritage, I’ve discovered that on both sides of my maternal line, I have Dutch cousins! I’ve walked through Amsterdam in the past unknowing: now I’ll be looking for connections with people and places. What an amazing thing it would be to meet them all at the MyHeritage conference!

    My Dad, now 95, was in the Canadian Army tanks that entered Holland at the end of the Second World War. He has fond memories of his time spent in Holland (especially in Apeldoorn where he volunteered to remain for almost a year guarding the 5 Canadian tanks that were ‘parked’ near what is now Het Loo Palace). I have never been to Europe, but would love to see where my Dad spent a good portion of his youth serving his country. Winning tickets to MyHeritage LIVE 2019 would be the impetus for my husband and I to finally book the European vacation we have dreamed of for many, many years.

    The industrious Dutch have been the force behind so many astounding accomplishments in history, and we are feeling the effects of their efforts to this day. I would like to meet people who’s ancestors have played a role in the many diverse accomplishments of that small, brilliant, energetic land. I am interested in the character of the Dutch people and what they know about their inherited identity, their drives, their innate talents and abilities that make them “Dutch”. I am so curious about the invisible drive that pulls on them to do so many daring, intellectual, artistic and entrepreneurial feats.

My sister and I just took my mom this weekend to Montreal to meet her son. It was a fantastic experience !

    I study the family tree more than 5 years. During this time I learned about the ancestors more than for all the life therefore I very much would like to visit a conference and to hear professionals of experts on genealogy.
    Besides, of course I would like to visit Amsterdam: in Anne Frank’s museum, in the Verzetsmuseum and to walk along channels.

    The most exciting place I would love to see would be the Van Gogh museum in North Holland. It’s supposed to be the largest collection of his works anywhere! Please allow me to be chosen to not only attend this informative conference, but to also see the Van Gogh museum. I recently found my birth mother, and although deceased before I found her, I learned that she was an artist. This was amazing, since all 3 of my children are artists! We love art, and would love to see this museum.

    I would love to visit the suite 702, as it is part of our pacifist movement history and also of my personal history, as I have listened and studied John Lennon’s life since I was a young teenager. Anne Frank’s house and the original diary would also be flabbergasting because her poetic point of view about life stroke me when I read her stories. Thank you so much for this hope.

    I am a food engineer, I would like to explore the history of gastronomy and drinks. This is a very interesting topic, precisely in historical terms. What preferences for food did people have in prehistoric times, in medieval times and accordingly now? Most likely this is also closely related to the fact that in the territory of Holland weather conditions allow you to collect more than one crop per year. And this is all against the background of the fact that Holland is not among the first among countries with famous gastronomy.
    Thank you.

    I first visited Amsterdam 1955 at the age of eight and took lots of photographs with my Box Brownie camera. I would love to return after all those years and compare the photos I took then with the current scenes and update them using digital colour photography. (I have to say that the 120 Ilford roll film produced some lovely black and white images). I travelled to Amsterdam by City Line ship and, as my usual ship Paddle Steamer Waverley is sadly under repair at the moment, I particularly would like to travel on the water there.

    Wow! Maybe on the next go around you can give a bit more time for someone to respond. Especially when the event is three months away from when you sent out the emails! Room 702 at the Hilton for one night is pretty much historical in itself! But oh well…to late.

    When I was a teenager I read the diary of Anne Frank, memories of which have stayed with me throughout my life. A recent marriage has given me a Jewish connection and through research have learnt that the person she married also has Jewish roots. The BBC recently gave a recording of the diary which was shared with me by my son 36 who was also so engaged with the story. It is a tragedy that this child never lived to enjoy a full life and a career as a writer. Yet she reaches people across the years, her story and experiences touch and are relevant to our lives. I would like to visit the Anne Frank museum.

    I would love to see the small museums which would show the history of the typical Dutch family from old times up till now. Probably, this would not be any famous spot or the museum, but could be really interesting family-place/family-museum of those who take care of the family-tree traditions of Holland, who know all grand-grand-parents and try to keep their traditions and habits from 100+ years and till the present. I am sure that guides of Amsterdam would find something such interesting and unique.
    Thank you for your question! It is very interesting indeed!

    Meet me in Amsterdam! That would be my invitation to a relative I have just found in Canada through matching trees on MyHeritage. Her ancestor moved from Italy to Canada and mine to Brazil.
    With her I’d take a boat tour learning the history of the canals and man overcoming water at such large scale. I’d love to learn more about the tax reasons shaping the narrow façade of houses.
    I’d like to visit Anne Frank’s museum to understand better the ordeal she’s been put through.

    I would love to travel in time in Amsterdam, get lost in the streets between the old tenement houses, which tell the stories about the lives of former residents, find their traces, become one of them for one day, breath the same oxygen, feel its heart and spirit; wander in the places, where I could behold and understand the heritage of Amsterdam.

    Amsterdam, Venice of the North! – OMG it would be absolutely amazing to spend some time in this beautiful city!
    Herengracht, Keizersgracht and Pinsengracht (three biggest canals), Magere Brug, Oude Kerk (where Rembrandt used to go a lot), Museums (Rijks, Van Gogh, NEMO, Madame Tussauds), and obviously living in Liverpool and being a huge fan of Lennon – Hilton Amsterdam, they all are only few things on my “must see in Amsterdam” list:)

    My Amsterdam’s favourite is the Rijksmuseum. I would like to go there to see Night Watch. This painting has got a special meaning to me. It was the first Rembrandt that I have learned about as a child. The subtle light that illuminates the picture reminds me of the nights with my mum and me watching the art albums next to the warm glow of the night lamp.
