Anglophile Competition: Trace your family history by winning a trip to Britain

Are you fascinated by your family history? Reckon you’re a direct descendant of some famous King or Queen? Does your blood line go all the way back to Roman Britain? Why not find out and enter this rather special competition from TLC to win a trip for two people to your ancestral homeland. It’s a promotion for their “Who do you think you are” telly programme.

True, your family history may not begin in Britain. It may be traced back to Ireland, Spain, Italy or even Mombasa. With this grand prize you get airfare (to whatever country you request), hotels, $2,000 cash to spend and even 40 hours of Ancestry.com ProGenealogist research. It’s a cracking price worth a whopping $14,000!

Enter the sweepstakes here. You have until August 29, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. ET to win!

PS. There is a question to enter but the answer should be found on the Ancestry page if you missed that episode

Blimey! is your daily dose of British news and features for anglophiles everywhere. This article was carefully written by Tim Holt, a British actor and author based in North Carolina. He misses England very much indeed, but also loves America too. Forever torn between two magnificent slices of sod.
