As you work your way through the scavenger hunt, you can share your progress on social media using the social share buttons from the app. Challenge your genealogy buddies and race to see who can finish first!

After answering a question correctly, some exhibitors will offer you instant rewards on the correct answer screen. Depending on the type of reward, you’ll also receive an email. If you want to access the Instant Reward again, simply re-scan the QR code for their booth and it’ll pop right back up.

No Need to Be Present To Win: The GBA.BUZZ Giveaway prizes will be awarded after the conference. An email will be sent to all participants from Family ChartMasters on August 28th announcing the winners. Winners will be contacted by the companies after the drawing. Exchange of prizes will be the responsibility of those individual companies.
