$10,000 in prizes at the Australian history & genealogy expo 2016

What started out as regional (state) expo with quite modest expectations became something much larger. In no area was this more pronounced than the prizes - the number of donors and the number and value of prizes offered. This blog post acknowledges the donors and lists all the winners.

  • 37 prize donors
  • 101 prizes offered - drawn in two separate draws
    - 90 for those prebooked - drawn during the expo
    - 10 further prizes for day visitors registering their names and contact details - drawn after the expo
    - 1 drawn by an exhibitor at their own stand
  • $10,097 - the total value of prizes offered
