What Happened to Great-Uncle George?

Greetings genealogists!

We’ve created a fun genealogy whodunit game that combines elements of family history research with the use of our powerful image restoration software.

What’s the story?

Following a recent DNA test, you’ve managed to make contact with a distant cousin named Peter. After chatting via email and meeting up for lunch, you’ve agreed to help him break down his biggest brick wall of all:

What happened to Great Uncle George?

Over five short chapters, you’ll be assisting Peter with his research by analyzing a series of photographs and documents in Vivid-Pix RESTORE software, using its restoration tools to reveal hidden passwords.

Each chapter contains a new email from Peter, furnishing you with fresh clues to solve the mystery!

So, dig your deerstalker out of the wardrobe and prepare yourself for a journey through Edwardian Britain and beyond, complete with crime, cryptic postcards and more!

Sounds exciting! How do I get started?

Firstly, you’ll need to download a free trial version of Vivid-Pix using the simple instructions below:

At each stage of the journey, you will be provided with a new ‘clue image’ that needs to be improved using Vivid-Pix RESTORE. Simply click on the link to download the clue image.
