imageOctober 2 - October 5 — the start of Family History Month — is our fifth annual "Source-a-Thon"!

This three-day event is for a good cause (sourced genealogy!), there will be lots of door prizes donated from around the genealogy community, and it will be lots of fun.

The marathon starts Friday, October 2 at 8 AM (ET) and ends Monday, October 5, 8 AM (ET) but you don't need to participate the whole time (!). If you can join for any of it, please post an ANSWER below saying either the team you'd like to be on (see the team list) or your genealogical interests or geographic location and we'll assign a team before the start of the event.

Dianne Bothamley, I don't mean to insult your intelligence but are you absolutely sure you are clicking the word "answer"? Because when you post like this you are clicking on comment. Try moving slightly left with your cursor but try to avoid hitting "flag".

If you see the blue comment with all the arrows, go 4 lines higher to the very top. That is an example only.
Sorry still confused as what to do there, the answers make no sense as to where to click, must be real slow
You are not slow Dianne.

It can be confusing because you are looking for a very SMALL link....

I have tried to send you an email with a screenshot!!

You need to send me your email address - please do that by PM.

Cheers

Robynne

Captain of the Kiwi Crew.
Hi! I'd like to join Team Italy this year. Thanks!
Concetta,

Click the     link.

Thank you
How do we add the badge image to the source a Thon template as link to the one displayed in the feed does not appear to work?

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:Source-a-Thon

You bib image. In order to add it, you'll need to download the image (which was posted in a comment under your response to the Source-a-Thon registration post), and upload it to your profile, then grab that image name and put it here. If you leave it empty, it will simply not include the badge image.

Evidently we are not at the point where we can add the image from one central place. When you upload the image to your profile it WILL complain it is a duplicate. You must tell it to do it anyway. This assures massive duplicated images all over wikitree. I guess it is what it is. (make sure you use YOUR new image name, not the original. like this "bib=Tibbetts-150-1.png")

Thanks Steven

Does this mean the Great Lakes team disbanded?
no idea, Steven.

Thanks, Kathy! You are #16!

Hi, Steven,

I don't know if they disbanded or if they're just taking some time off. I told Eowyn that the Terriers would participate if they didn't sign up, and I guess they didn't. So here we are! (With a captain who almost forgot to sign up for herself!)
