And the Winnier Is....

12 noon EST marked the end of the Marian's Roots and Rambles WORLD membership giveaway contest.

Everyone did a terrific job of locating Elvis Presley's social security number! I hope everyone also got a chance to learn more about the variety of death records that are available for genealogical research on

In order to select the winner I followed this procedure. Every correct entry was assigned a number, starting with the number 1, based on when the entry was received. I then went to and generated a random number.  The correct entry associated with the number won the prize of a 3-month WORLD for themselves and a friend of their choice.

And the winner is.....

Diane Meyer

Congratulations, Diane, on your win! (I will contact you via email) And thanks to everyone for participating in the contest.
