You might’ve seen the news about the Heirloom
Registry Scavenger Hunt that the folks over at Houstory have put together for
I love how it will encourage genealogists to record and share the stories behind their
family heirlooms, so I’m happy to be part of it. Plus, you can win a bunch of prizes,
including our Family
Tree Magazine 2012 Annual CD; How
to Archive Family Keepsakes from the Family
Curator herself, Denise Levenick; Preserving
Your Family Photographs from Photo
Detective Maureen A. Taylor, and more.
Scavenger hunt days are March 4, 6 and 8, with a prize awarded each day plus
a grand prize at the end.
To go on the hunt, you’ll need to visit four blogs on their designated hunt day—that’s Monday,
March 4 for this Genealogy Insider blog. Click
here to see the list of all four blogs you need to visit on Monday.
Each blogger will post about an heirloom he or she has logged in Houstory’s Heirloom
Registry. The post will provide that item’s registry code. After you visit each blog,
you’ll go to the Heirloom Registry website,
look up the heirloom using the registry code, view the Registry Certificate for that
item, and find a secret code word. Then you’ll include the code words from the four
blogs on the entry form you can link to
from this page.
You’ll find all the Heirloom Registry
Scavenger Hunt instructions here, and you also can get updates by following Houstory
on Facebook and Twitter (#HoustoryHunt).
So I’ll see you back here on Monday for the Heirloom Registry Scavenger Hunt, and
I’ll share a little about one of my favorite family heirlooms.
