Vote for Del in the Mocavo Mother's Day Story Contest

Have you read the Mother's Day stories in the Mocavo.com contest?  You should, they are all great.

Here is information about it from my San Diego-area genealogy friend and society colleague, Del Ritchhart, who is one of the finalists:

Many persons recently entered a Mother's Day Contest run by Mocavo, the relatively new genealogy web-site.  The contest was to write a 1000 word essay about a mother/grandmother or other woman who had a great influence on your life.  Six finalists will compete to win a trip for two to Boston.  The finalist with the most on-line votes by Saturday, May 12 will win the trip.  

You can vote by going to www.mocavo.com/vote.  If for some reason you get Mocavo's home page instead of the Ballot page, click on the lettering in pink at the top of the page that says "Vote for your Favorite Story."  Click on that and it will take you to the voting page.  Individuals may vote once each day until the contest ends.

UPDATE:  Voters must be registered Mocavo.com users (it's free).

Del's entry is titled "The Enigmatic Mary O'Malley."

I know that this is a shameless plug for a friend of mine.  I encourage my readers to read all of the entries and vote for the story of their choice.
