This is what it states on the Thon page " The goal of the event is to clear out the England Unsourced Profiles category on WikiTree". The individual counties are all list in a table on our team page.

You can also start your own thread below by Answering this question. Give us updates on your progress, ask for and give help and support your team colleagues

I think I was the first member of the team to sign up as managed to get No 6 this time.

Today was my last agreed shift at work so more time for my favourite pastime (obsession) I hope to be demonstrating the AGC App before the Thon alongside another extension I am using for sources. I will let you know when and share the link.

You certainly were an early bird laugh yes

The app sounds great let me know when you have the link and announce it in Discord group if you wish

Yes I think I would like to help out here, if I may.  I'll leave Canada without me this time.

Hi Brad

Appreciate you joining us.  You don't have to completly abandon Canada you can still work Canadian profiles as it is the work that counts not the location.

We have members from all over the world they will work on both the home profiles and the English ones, so mix it up and have fun

Hi Janet and All Mighty Oaks colleagues! I'm looking forward to the SAT this year. I'll be in Cornwall and Devon as usual. Maybe next year I'll branch out, but am comfortable with my ancestral location so far.

I am donating a $25 gift card to (whatever...Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc.) for the SAT this year and hope one of our Mighty Oaks wins!

Thanks Carol

Will add locations next to your name.

Donating a prize is a lovely thing to do and yes would be nice if one of your colleagues could win it

Take Care

We did a great job team, a job well done the grand total for the event was 57,577 profiles sourced. The Mighty Oaks contributed 8,877 of those. Maddy lead all the way and ended with a fab score of 1,130. Making her no 6 on the individual scoreboard
