Genealogical Scavenger Hunt
August 4 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:00am, repeating until August 7, 2021
The Clark County Genealogical Society is hosting a Genealogical Scavenvger Hunt. Registration is now open for five daily genealogical scavenger hunts (quizzes) which begins Monday, Aug. 2. For five days there will be a set of seven questions about a historical figure from the United States (or American colonies) ranging from the 16th through the 20th centuries. Each answer can be found online using free resources. The challenge of the genealogical scavenger hunt lies in digging up those answers from a wide variety of sources. A modest donation is requested but not required in order to play
A link to the daily quiz questions will be emailed to each player not later than 9 p.m. the night before that quiz. Players will follow the link, enter their registration code, answer the questions, give the source URLs used, then click the “Submit” button to enter the daily prize drawing. Players timely submitting the most correct answers will be eligible in a daily drawing for one daily prize. A player may win only one daily prize during the week, but will still be eligible for the grand prize drawing. Players timely submitting the most correct answers for the 5 daily games will be eligible in the grand prize drawing. Quiz Masters will notify winners via email prior to revealing all winners and awarding prizes on Saturday, Aug. 7 at 3 p.m. in the Clark County Genealogical Society Library.
