Genealogical Scavenger Hunt

Join the Hunts for Daily Prizes-Student & Adult Players Welcome

The Clark County Genealogical Society has now conducted two genealogical scavenger hunts. Each consisted of a week of fun exploration focused on expanding and exercising research skills. Participants looked for answers to genealogical questions on the internet while racing the clock to complete the hunt each day before midnight. 

March 7-11, 2022

This scavenger hunt focused on questions about historic governors from what is now the United States. All answers could be found using free resources, and a wide variety of sources were needed in order to answer the questions. The Quiz Masters (those who authored the questions and verified participant answers) were Marcia Grubb, Steve Aberle, Elsie Deatherage, and Paula Schoenlein. 

The Grand Prize winner was Denise Erkkila who won $100. 

The Daily prize winners were Tom Farrelly, Mary McMonegal, Denise Erkkila, Kathy Schadewitz, and Maria Adler who each won $25. 

Random player drawings were won by Chris Maitland, Bob Cook, and Dolly Merrick.
