Treasure Hunt

Ahoy, Matey!

Glad you dropped by for the First Clue in the RootsMagic Online Treasure Hunt!  Just look around for the treasure chest and your First Clue.

I hope you've tried RootsMagic, now in its 6th Version ...and the new release for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch is phenomenal.   The new online publishing is impressive - you can see a version of that here and there.

From Thursday, March 21 through Wednesday, March 27, 2013, visit  http://www.rootsmagic.com/treasure for a complete list of the blogs where the 15 clue words can be found. Visit each blog, collect all 15 clue words, and you could win software, prizes, or an iPad!

IF YOU ARE AT RootsTech!
Once you've collected the clues there are two ways to enter. The first is at the RootsTech conference itself. Pick up an entry card at the RootsMagic booth (#401) in the Exhibit Hall. Write the clue words on the back of the card and return it to the RootsMagic booth in the Exhibit Hall by Saturday, March 23 at 1:20 pm. At that time, we will hold the prize drawings. You must be present to win.

BUT if you couldn't get there this year!
We didn't want those who aren't able to attend RootsTech in person to feel left out so we're holding a second drawing and giving away more prizes including a second iPad. To enter this drawing, visit http://www.rootsmagic.com/treasure anytime between Thursday, March 21 and midnight MST on Wednesday, March 27, 2013. Fill out the online form to be entered into the second drawing. You may enter both drawings but one entry per person, per drawing. Winners will be picked at random and notified via e-mail by Friday, March 29, 2013.

While you're here on my Blog - you'll see in the side bar the labels that link to my posts concerning problems, conflicts, and brick walls in my family tree. The posts on my civil War ancestors are my favorites.  The new Comstock family breakthrough is very exciting.  Please look around!

Disclosure: I'm a satisfied user of RootsMagic.  I've used Bruce Buzbee's software since it was Family Origins.  I have no other relationship.
