What happened to great-uncle George? Fun new genealogy game with prizes!


05 July 2021
The team at Vivid-Pix has created a fun genealogy whodunit game that combines elements of family history research with the use of their powerful image restoration software.

The game immerses players  into the genealogy process using restored photos and documents to learn about relatives’ past. The game is all about a fictional long-lost Great-Uncle: George Albert Bellamy, who emigrated from the U.K. to the U.S. in the early 1900s.

By collaborating with distant cousin Peter, you will analyze miniscule details in old photos and documents using the restoration tools in Vivid-Pix to discover hidden clues from Great-Uncle George’s past in the U.K. and his mysterious travels overseas to the U.S. Prepare yourself for a journey through Edwardian Britain and beyond, complete with crime, cryptic postcards, and more!
The game provides Tips & Tricks on genealogy research and Vivid-Pix RESTORE software.
