This is our second annual Connect-a-Thon. Our goal is to decrease the number of profiles that are not connected to our big tree by adding relatives to existing profiles.
The event will start on Friday, July 17, at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday, July 20, 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. There are a few new ones and some that aren't active for this marathon. Please double check before you post your answer!
I just deleted your email address out of your post so that spammers don't pick it up.
If you have decided to participate in the Connect-a-thon, just go up to Eowyn's original post at the top of these comments, click "answer," and let me know which team you'd like to join.
Once you're on a team, your teammates will be able to help you figure out the best way to approach adding your information from Ancestry.
Hi, Carole --
The team normalized sum is just an average of the total connections made divided by the number of team members who have actively participated.
The individual normalized sums, I believe, are the percentage a person has contributed to the team total -- apparently rounded up to the next whole number. I'm not positive about this, but the math kinda makes sense.
p.s. No "wiki-ignorance" involved. lol ... it's not spelled out anywhere that I'm aware of, and we never did say there would be math. ;-)
p.p.s. We do have a thread going for Connect-a-thon questions if anything else comes to mind. :-) ... just go here
Sign me up for the SouthWest Sunshiners. This will be my first challenge!
