Gwen first became interested in genealogy after she joined the LDS Church at the age of 18 while living in South Texas. She has been working on genealogy / family history for over 40 years and during that time has gained a real love and connection to her ancestors and family through doing the work. She is currently working on her paternal line; doing research in Oklahoma and Texas records.
She is a nurse by profession and she loves her family, including all her ancestors.
She is excited to be attending RootsTech 2018. She has always wanted to attend but has never taken the time to attend. She is interested in learning more about how to use her DNA results in her research. Lucky for Gwen, there are 13 DNA Classes Being Offered at RootsTech 2018! She is very excited to attend the conference and to make new genealogy friends.
Thank you to those who entered my giveaway contest here on my blog. I hope to have other fun giveaways in the future.
I utilized Rafflecopter to run the giveaway. To select the winner the Rafflecopter software utilizes Random.org to ensure true randomness. I shared my blog post organically via Facebook and received 960 Facebook views from the shared post on my Facebook page; I also shared via Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.
For some more numbers, that may be interesting only to me:
696 people viewed the blog post
24 people entered the giveaway
107 entries from those 24 people
Two of the entry options of my giveaway were to come back to my blog everyday and read another post and/or visit the RootsTech website and identify another class; which resulted in one/two additional entries each day.
The winner had 5 entries. The most entries had by one person was 11.
Thank you again for participating in my giveaway! I look forward to seeing you at RootsTech 2018!
I am 2018 RootsTech Ambassador and have received a free conference registration from RootsTech.
