Hi Ronel,

 In preparation for the sourcing, is there anything Specific that we need to know or do regarding the SA profiles.

Hi Jaulanne 

No need to be doing anything  beforehand  We recommend that you start with your own unsourced profiles by following the unsourced tag on your own profile.  

You can also Tune in  for the WikiTree -Chat, talking about Sources  and where to find unsourced profiles for the upcoming Source -a thon profiles.  Hoag!YouTube: https://youtu.be/vh1zFyQX6ug

Good luck  and have lots of fun.
 
Hi,

 I have just been checking whether I can access various Sources. I have found various source references on profiles that link here

https://www.eggsa.org/index.php/en/links_e.htm  

are not working.  I am getting a 404 Error

Anyone else having problem
Good morning Ronel. What time in South Africa should we start, This GMT and ET stuff is confusing!

Thanks

Drika
Yes. You are correct, It does give an error message.
Jaulanne and Drika

eggsa is a secondary source that link to eGGSA website which is down at the moment

Try Roots search on the right hand side of the profile linked to the Family search website which will provide a better source  

Tweak the source part a bit to narrow your search if there are to many options

Happy hunting
Drika  we start at 8am (ET) and as far as my calculations go that would be 14

14 00h today  (2pm)
