And the winner is…

Decisions, decisions…

Um… er… well…

The Legal Genealogist has a confession to make.

winnerUm… er… well…

I couldn’t pick a winner of the haiku contest.

I mean, seriously, did you read those entries?

There were at least a dozen that were right up there in contention, and picking just one? Yikes! I was going ’round in circles.

So I whined. And Family Tree University gave me a second registration to the Family Tree University 2013 Fall Virtual Conference to give as a prize.

Now that didn’t make it all that much easier, trust me. But I think you’ll agree with me that the winners are folks who really should be going to this virtual conference.

Without further ado, the winners of the send-me-to-the-conference haiku contest:

Barbara Gallagher

Bound to a wheelchair,
It is so hard to travel.
I want to learn more!

Tina Forsyth

Adopted, age ten.
Now 10 children of my own.
Need to build our tree.

Congratulations to both… See you online this weekend!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I am so excited to attend this conference as I miss out on so many educational conferences that require travel by plane. I am so grateful, Judy, to you and to Family Tree University for this wonderful opportunity. It will help me so much!

    Great winners, Judy, for a wonderful prize! As for me, I’ll be squeezing those toonies and loonies for the next year or so… :)

    Those who are unable to travel, by car, boat or airplane or mule train, consider a webinar. It is a new field that is becoming more and more popular every day. Even states are getting in the act. I am putting one together for my local genealogy club; I want to test the waters before I go global.

      Webinars are terrific, Gus and everybody should be taking advantage of the large number available online, often for little or no cost. And that’s basically what an online conference is: a set of webinars, plus real-time online chats and more that add value to the package as a whole.
