Challenge of the Week: Thousands of Find A Grave memorials have more information about a person or information that conflicts with what's on WikiTree. A thinking genealogist needs to evaluate each suggestion. Will you help?
Annual Challenge: Our community's biggest event — the Source-a-Thon — is Friday, 28 Sep, to Monday, 1 Oct. More than 500 genealogists will work together on teams to verify the data in unsourced profiles. Register now to be eligible for the $3,500 in door prizes from Findmypast, MyHeritage, Ancestry, Fold3, Newspapers.com, RootsTech, AncestryDNA, MyHeritageDNA, and more. It will be loads of fun.
Member of the Week: SJ Baty is a Project Coordinator for the Spain and Early Pennsylvania Settlers projects and volunteers as a Data Doctor, Sourcerer and Ranger. "I was very turned off by the sites that are happy to take the research I've done, and then charge a subscription to sell it to my cousins. ... Once I tried WikiTree, I was hooked. It is open, fosters collaboration, and I believe it will be here in the long run."
"It's been wonderful to experience how collaborative genealogy in WikiTree makes all of us better genealogists. Collaboration on our shared ancestors encourages us to share information and to hold each other to high standards." — Ellen Smith
