This sounds fun: The Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS) is holding an online
genealogy scavenger hunt along with FamilySearch, with a goal to build the Illinois
section of the FamilySearch Research Wiki.
Everyone’s invited to participate in the Great Illinois Genealogy Scavenger Hunt,
going on now through June 30.
All you have to do is find information on Illinois genealogy resources—websites, databases,
how-to articles, etc.—and say why a resource should be included in the Research Wiki.
Prizes include a RootsTech 2012 conference registration and a one-year ISGS membership.
In addition, a prize will be awarded each day between June 1 and June 30, 2011 to
someone drawn at random. For complete details, consult
the contest rules.
