With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, families are encouraged to reflect on the traditions passed down through generations. Whether your family traveled to the “New World” decades ago or recently immigrated to the US, the customs and memories of those who came before us are strongly tied to Thanksgiving.
What better way to honor your ancestors this year than entering the latest contest by visiteurope.com, in partnership with Ancestry.com – “Follow Your Roots: Visit Europe.” One lucky winner will have the once-in-a-lifetime chance to explore where their traditions originated with a trip for two to their European homeland, along with a yearlong World Membership to Ancestry.com and a $400 gift certificate to MyCanvas.com, redeemable for a customized family photo album.
To enter, simply submit a photo and description of the person(s) in the photo and their significance to following your roots back to Europe for your chance to win a trip for two to the country of your heritage.
The official submission period ends November 28, with a voting round beginning that day to determine the top 10 entries. A panel of visiteurope.com judges will select the grand prize winner.
