Don’t be so quick to complain.

And klk (if those are your initials, I’m SO glad your middle name isn’t “Kirk”… sure you are too), you make a valid observation, but as Jan points out, it’s very easy to include, for example, the other country on the N.A. continent that shares population origin (ancestry!) with the U.S. — Canada.

It’s done all the time. Our regulations in both countries are usually so close as to be nearly harmonized. It’s because we have such similar origins, overlapping cultures, and often standards and regulations deliberately harmonized for convenience, for the simple reasons that we’re so close, and share thousands of miles of unprotected, osmotic border. Why is that? Because most of us don’t consider each other “foreign”, as such. Just adjacent, culturally, legislatively, and idealogically similar enough to resemble siblings.

All that seems to be lacking is the will.

Best regards,

Steve

There are plenty of American companies that run foreign competitions with their products – you only need to look at your breakfast cereal packet, soft drinks can or parcel delivery service to see promotional competitions on a regular basis. Poor excuse, bad customer relations. COME ON ANCESTRY.CO.UK – Be Fair !

Come on Ancestry it’s time to front up and get real! Give the rest of us a fair go!

I’m sure they wish they could open the contest world-wide but that is probably impossible due to the laws regulating contests. I don’t understand why people cannot understand this very simple concept.

I too have a brick wall and would certainly love to win this prize as do many others who live in Canada, U.K., Australia etc. I will continue to say that this is a simple problem to solve and if anyone could it should be Ancestry. I, and all non-U.S. Members are paying for these prizes. Yes I could not renew my membership but that is defeatist. I have had some lovely finds and wish to continue. We deserve to be treated as equal. Thank you. Mrs. Davies.
