Family Tree is pleased to announce the winning entrant of our Family History Moments competition with interactive story-telling website Rakonto.
We asked you to record your favourite family history moment and we were moved, surprised and amazed at the wonderful stories shared by entrants.
It was genuinely a pleasure to watch each and every two-minute video, thanks so much to everyone who took part and the many thousands of you who watched the video entries.
And the winner is...
We are pleased to announce that the winner is Ann Simcock. Congratulations, Ann, and thank you for sharing your story with us.
Ann wins a one-year subscription to Rakonto worth over £200, and a £50 Amazon voucher.
You can view all entries, including Ann's video, right now on Rakonto - just register for a free account to view the collection.
Rakonto allows you to capture and share your stories, the way it’s been done for thousands of years – by simply talking.
The website allows you to record yourself, or upload recordings you already have in your possession, or you can ask others to record stories and they will be added to your own collection.
Ask siblings and relatives to record their favourite stories about your grandparents. Generate a QR code, display it at your wedding venue, and ask attendees to scan and record their well-wishes to the bride and groom. The possibilities are endless!
