imageRegistration is now closed.

October 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.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a small piece of software dealing with this registration? Instead of using a FAQ system?
It would, Michel -- are you volunteering?? ;-)

Well... not sure one would allow a newbie to make such changes cheeky. But who knows...

laugh

Maybe your suggestion will put a bug in someone's ear. 

Mum Julie, Michel showed us at the DRP he is able to make (small) miracles happen.

So cherish the bug! And mark his ID! (But do not steel him away from us! winklaugh

I'm registred as #489 but there is no sign of my participation anywhere. Not in the team I signed up (Spic-n-Span Scandinavians; I added my-self on that page but doesn't seem to change anything) and not showing up in the tracking lists. Feels a little bit left out...

Hi Ben, try posting here to see if it can be sorted out - https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1116016/do-you-have-2020-source-a-thon-questions
OK thanks will do!
Shucks! I missed it!...again..  Bummer..maybe in 2021..or are we doing these more than once a year?  Thx
The next thon will be in 2021...Scan-A-Thon, We will see you then!

by Loretta Morrison G2G6 Pilot (143k points)
Happy to have you back, Trish!
Thanks Lori ,and you remembered Loretta was my birth name, thanks Cuz!
Of course I did! I think it's pretty cool that you have two names and I like them both.
And I'm still thinking about changing the name to Missouri Cousins since so many of us are distantly related.

That could work, or husband says Missouri Mules the state animal and since we are so stub....  Or, a tenacious wink! Ha!

Hi, Loretta Trish laugh

Hi! My interests are Maris Quakers, British Hawaiians, California, and the westward migration across the US. I’ve never done this b4 but I’m happy to focus on adding sources for the source-a-thon! It’s necessary and I’ve neglected it more than I should have so this is a great time to do it!

My first time doing anything community-based on WikiTree! I'd like to work on Washington State records as that is where most of my family is from.
by Oliver Stremple G2G1 (1.4k points)
Washington State is covered by the Western Red Cedars. Of course you could pick any team in the list above and still probably do Washington profiles. Feel free to check the team list in the original post and look them over. (I'm partial to Nor'Easters. lol)
Thanks. I saw that team...not sure how to join? Do I just add my name?
Just state you want to join them.  The team captain will add
you to the roster and let you know more information such as the team page.
Welcome to the challenge Oliver, any team will be happy to have your help!
Oliver, ain't it a great feeling having people just waiting for you to declare what team you want to join? The Cedars may have an advantage but no team counts you out until YOU state a name, accept an invite, or time closes and WikiTree admin assigns you.

(drum roll ............) and the winner is? LOL
Hi Oliver!  Western Red Cedars would be happy to have you!  Let me know and I'll add you to the team roster!

Hi, Oliver, and welcome to your first Source-a-thon! You are #189!

I've added you to the Western Red Cedars. Please let me know if that's not what you settled on. :-)
