Family Search Scavenger Hunt

Click on the image below to see the PDF. This is a scavenger hunt game that can be played with your family or in a group of people. Give everyone about 30 to 40 minutes to see what they can find and then count up their points. Then discuss what everyone found and that is more important than the points they earned.

We did this with a group of young men from our church. Two brothers were working together on their phone. They discovered an audio file of an ancestor telling about crossing the plains. The father happened to be in the room. Pretty soon all three of them were hovering over the phone trying to hear this incredible message. All desire for more points was lost, but they truly won the prize that night.

Create your own scavenger hunt. The one above was created in Excel and then exported into a PDF file.
