This would appear to be a consumer promotion which is subject to a series of federal, state, and local laws.

At a minumum, you are required to publish contest rules which should include:
1.ELIGIBILITY
2.CONTEST PERIOD
3.ENTRY
4.WINNER SELECTION
5.PRIZES
6.GENERAL CONDITIONS
7.LIMITATIONS OF LIABILITY
8.ARBITRATION AND DISPUTES
9.WINNERS LIST

Where can these be found for this contest?
=============================
BTW, your U.S. subscribers probably have no idea what a “premium” membership is, since that terminology has long since disappeared from the U.S. site. The only options are the U.S. Discovery and World Explorer packages.

Most idiotic cross promotion ever.

All it’s going to accomplish is to clog up the Ancestry Facebook page for weeks and annoy the hell out of the regulars there and not create any interest in Ancestry whatsoever.

I was expecting to hear the song “in my blood.”

This is dumb, never heard of them.
Would have like to heard the song.
Don’t care to see them in concert.
Probably wouldn’t go to any concert

What WOULD be cool is to WIN a spot on WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? And have a REAL person’s Genealogy done.. You can start with me, My Grandpa came from Greece, I am 3rd Generation from Island of Chios.
I know nothing about his family in Greece.
