RootsTech 2015 FREE 3-Day Pass Winner: Janice Sellers

I posted Win a Free Registration to RootsTech 2015 (February 12-14, 2015) on 12 November, and had only seven entries, even though I publicized it several times on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+).

The odds were pretty good for persons who took the minute or two to enter the contest.  There are other contests available - search them out and enter them if you are planning to go to RootsTech 2015.  You never know when something good will happen - it's worth the effort.

I used the random number generator at to select a winner.  I had saved all of the entries in a special Gmail folder so all I had to do was have the random number generator pick a number between 1 and 7.

When I looked at my list of entrants, the 5th one was Janice Sellers who writes the Ancestral Discoveries blog and lives in the Bay area.  Congratulations to Janice.

I asked for two things - a presentation that the winner wanted to attend, and a vendor that they wanted to visit with in the Expo Hall.  Janice's two things were:

1. I want to attend the "School Daze-Finding the School Records of Our Ancestors" session because I know several schools associated with my family members and I would love to be able to find school records for them.

2. I hope NIGS is one of the vendors, so I can stop by and visit with the always pleasant Louise St. Denis.

Janice also needs to come by the Media Center in the Expo Hall and take a picture with me for this blog!

Thank you to all of the entrants who took the time to enter my contest.  I hope that they will enter other contests and win a free 3-day pass to RootsTech 2015.
