The Winner of the Genea-Musings Father's Day Contest is ...

I announced the Genea-Musings Father's Day contest for some Ancestry.com prizes in Father's Day Contest at Genea-Musings - Win Ancestry.com Prizes last week.  The deadline was Sunday night at 8:59 p.m. PDT.

There were 25 entrants who fulfilled the entry requirements.  I used the random number generator at www.random.org, put 25 as the highest number, and it selected #23.

#23 on my list of entrants was Donna Jane Peterson in Texas.  Donna's entry about her favorite father said:

"My favorite father is my son-in-law. He teaches his children by example. He serves his country and his church and shows his respect to God and country."

Donna won these prizes, courtesy of Ancestry.com:

*  6-month U.S. Discovery membership to Ancestry.com
*  1-year membership to Fold3
*  Family Tree Maker (PC or Mac version)

Congratulations to Donna.  And thank you to Ancestry.com for offering this contest to me and for the prizes.  Ancestry.com has contacted Donna to get the prizes to her.

Interesting, isn't it, how much better the odds were for persons entering the Genea-Musings contest (which had only 25 entries) and the Ancestry.com contest on Facebook (which probably had hundreds or thousands of entries, although the 20 hours of consultation with ProGenealogists was a more valuable prize).
