Do you have any long-lost family members that you haven’t seen in years? Would you love to reconnect? Share your story before December 19, 2011 for a chance to win an all-expenses paid reunion as well as $1000 cash.

Once the entry session closes, the public will vote on the stories, and a winner will be announced on December 23rd. What a great potential Christmas gift!

The top ten vote getters will win a free year-long subscription to Archives.com to explore their own family tree further.

Here are the details from the Archives.com announcement: To enter, simply submit your favorite memory of a long lost relative with whom you would like to be reunited at www.runandhug.com/families (Sorry, link no longer exists). Then, share with family and friends so they can vote for you!

If your story receives the most votes, you and a companion will win two all expenses paid trips to reunite during the holiday season. You will also be given $1,000 in cash to enhance your trip. Cash prizes of $500 and $200 will be awarded to the runner-up and second runner-up. The top ten contestants with the most votes will receive year-long subscriptions to Archives.com to further explore their family tree. (read the www.runandhug.com/families/faq/).

Good luck to everyone!
