The Heirloom Registry™ Scavenger Hunt, hosted by Houstory®, ended last week. Winners from Illinois, Arkansas, New York and Missouri took home four, family history, genealogy and antique prize packages collectively valued at more than $500.
Contestants were required to visit each of the various partner blogs to collect codes that could be entered into The Heirloom Registry to locate hidden clues. The week-long event involved 11 sponsor blogs and three separate hunts.
The following scavenger hunters were awarded prize packages that included a variety of genealogy, family history and antique-related products.
- Kimberly Nagy of Downers Grove, Ill.
- Caroline Shultz of Sherwood, Ark.
- Brenda Ciesla of Conklin, N.Y
Deb Andersland of Gainesville, Mo. was named the grand prize winner of the event. Her prize package included a Flip-Pal® mobile scanner.
“We had a great time putting on the hunt, and we are grateful to all the participating sponsor blogs and players,” said Dan Hiestand, Houstory marketing director. “It also helped folks understand a little bit more about the value of The Heirloom Registry and its role in preserving and sharing family history.”
