What's New at GeneaBloggers
Vivid-Pix’s “Uncle George” genealogical mystery offers GeneaBloggers a chance to exercise family history sleuthing skills and share the fun and prizes with followers while educating them.
Solve Vivid-Pix’s What Happened to Great-Uncle George WhoDunit and Enter to win $1000 or a weekend in New York or London
And have fun doing it too!
Here’s the premise of the What Happened to Great-Uncle George? genealogical mystery:
After a DNA test, you virtually meet a distant cousin and agree to help him break down his biggest brick wall. He can’t figure out what happened to his great-uncle.
Over five “chapters,” you assist your newfound cousin by analyzing photographs and documents. They’re hard to make out, so you use RESTORE software (free trial if you don’t have it already) to clean them up to reveal the heretofore hidden clues.
Note: This contest expires at the end of September.
Why Bloggers Should Share the Great-Uncle George Content with Followers
Readers follow bloggers because they gain value from posts. Publicizing the Vivid-Pix contest provides potential value in terms of entertainment and potential prizes.
The contest dovetails with GeneaBloggers’ mission to educate family historians. It emphasizes a basic premise in a fun way: Don’t ignore the details. Read the complete document. Study photographs.
