We have also been giving you the chance to win some great prizes in our daily competitions! Look for the daily Announcement board posts for details of how to enter, and you could be in with a chance to win some fantastic Family History prizes including:

- A pair of tickets to the 2014 Who Do You Think You Are? Live show

All competitions close at midnight on Sunday 5 January 2014, and the prize winners will be contacted by email by Friday 10 January. Good luck!

So… make it your New Year's resolution to continue your research. Just imagine how far you'll have come by this time next year!
