Forget your little candles or pieces of chocolate. If you’re interested in tracing your ancestors there’s only one way to count down to the festive season, and that’s by having some family history fun with the Ancestry Advent Calendar.

Visit the Calendar every day until 24th December for a series of exciting treats. Each window hides a top tip for your tree, a special holiday challenge or an exclusive prize draw. Make sure you take advantage of every chance to win, as we have a sackful of great prizes to give away, worth hundreds of pounds!

Don’t worry if you miss a day; you can go back and open any windows you’ve forgotten right up to the New Year. But don’t try to jump ahead – you know what happens to naughty boys and girls at this time of year!

And of course, this is the time for sharing, so please let us know how you get on with the challenges and top tips on Facebook.

I don’t get it you want us to enter for things and then will not accept our address postal code. This is most likely because I live in Canada. If that is the case why not state for the UK only instead of wasting my time like that.
