Registration is now closed for our 2020 Spring Clean-a-Thon

This is our fourth (!) annual Clean-a-Thon. The mission is to clear out as many database suggestions as possible over the 72 hours. 

The cleaning will start on Friday, April 24, at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday, April 27, at 8 AM (EDT).

Will you join us?

To register, just click the ANSWER button and say "Sign me up!" or whatever and include a few words about your location and/or genealogical interests. This will help us assign you to a team. If you already know what team you'd like to be on, say that. The current teams are listed here. More may be added.  Please double-check and make sure the team you are interested in is participating.

Happy Cleaning!

@ Meaghan Scott - you are on Team Canada Cleanup Crew.

Hi, Meaghan! I've registered you and signed up on the Canada Cleanup Crew.
Thanks, Melanie ... I was just getting ready to respond. :-)
Thanks so much! ❤️
Can't get the tracker to register.
Hi, Roy ... can you tell us more?

Have you entered your Profile ID in the box underneath where it says "Update Status:" and the "Your WikiTreeID:" ?

If you have a screenshot of what's going on, that will also be helpful.
it is working fine now. I thought I had to register each update, but it is doing it automatically, no need to click extra boxes.

Glad you got squared away, Roy!
Why do you guys close the registration before the event is over?

Life is hectic and internet access unpredicitble so never know if I can join in these kinds of things so pre-registration is not a good idea for me. But I do have time and access this weekend so I would have like to join in.
I'm sorry you didn't get registered in time, Jennifer. We have to have time to get the teams organized and communicate with the team captains in time for them to prepare, as well.

In the future, you can always register, and if life gets in the way, it's not a problem if you end up not being able to participate. We all understand how things can go sometimes.

Watch for the Connect-a-thon this summer. It should be sometime in July.
Wow, I surely thought I'd signed up, but it doesn't appear that I have. I guess I didn't do it right. Disappointing, when you try to follow instructions but don't succeed. :-(

Hi Sandy! 

Would you be interested in joining our new Scotland team, Twisted Thistles? We would be happy to have you with us!

Sarah - Yes sign me up here.  I am already part of Scotland Project (Bio Builders) and plan to tackle the "Duncan" family as time permits. Many of which involves the Suggestions Report.  Thanks.

Regards. Sandy

PS - Like the Graphics -- is there a restriction for use on profiles?

Welcome Sandy! Here is our chat page. You can use the image on profiles.

You are set, Sandy!

I would like to join team Mid-Atlantic US. Most of my ancestors settled in Pennsylvania and it would be great to learn how to clean up records and better document in this area.
by Alexandra Florimonte G2G6 Mach 1 (19.3k points)
Happy to have you again, Alexandra. I get what you are saying about "learn how to clean up records and better document" an area. My ancestors are from Reading and I feel like an "expert" and think I know everyone in "my" neighborhood.
You're all set, Alexandra!

Sign me up. My particular interests include the Fontes, De Fontes from the Azores, and the Pina, Goncalves in the Cape Verde Islands, Highwater parish, Villa Franca do Campo, St. Miguel is from the Azores and also the Fayal Island. I also have a disconnect with my maternal grandmother. Her last name was Vivian Louise Alford, and she may have been born with the last name of OReilly but it's possible that is was changed. She may have been adopted, Or she was passed among family members as it seems that there is an African American/White mixture in her. Supposedly her last name harks back to Haskew/Murray/ Denis lines

Hi, Valora!

You are officially registered. 

Because we don't have a team covering your corner of the world, I assigned you to the Tree Nuts. We are a non-regional team, and you are free to work on the suggestions or regions that interest you. 

Our G2G chat.

Our Team page

The Tree Nuts also have a Discord server where we have a live text chat going throughout the Clean-a-Thon. Private message me if you're interested in joining in. :-)
