Hi WikiTreers!

We have launched our most ambitious community event ever: The WikiTree Challenge.

Each week in 2021, a team of WikiTreers will collaborate on the tree of a special genealogy guest star. Our challenge is to make their genealogy more accurate and complete than it previously was on any public family tree website. Here are all the details: Help:WikiTree_Challenge

Can you participate in any of these weeks?

Week 5 February 3-10: Henry Louis Gates, Jr. - Team Roses
Week 6 February 10-17: Judy Russell - Mid-Atlantic
Week 7 February 17-24:  Kirsty Gray - Mighty Maple Leaves
Week 8 February 24 - March 3: Thomas MacEntee - Team Virginia

To register, simply post an answer below (not a comment) and say something like "I want to participate in weeks 5 and 8."

closed with the note: Thank you for participating! You can sign up now for March.

Would this be of interest to anyone? (It was in my email today.)

Legacy Family Tree Webinars : Genealogy Escape Room by Thomas MacEntee 55 minutes Beginner Intermediate January 27, 2021 Free through February 3, 2021

Yes I would be interested. I would check it out.
Unfortunately I missed the deadline for the free and saw very little of the video.  Maybe they will do it again sometime
It's too late to register for the Week 8 Challenge?
Joe thank you I was signed up and didn't know it. I am participating in week 8 and already in for week 9 and all of March.  Thank you.

Hi Mindy,

Could you please remove me from the February challenge? I have so many other things going on that I cannot guarantee that I will be able to do this. You can remove the sticker from my page too.

Thanks,

Eric
Sure Eric. I'm sorry you can't participate. I hope that you and yours are well.
All good here! I just have a lot of things going on at work, all good. Plus, I realized that I'm busy on my own WikiTree projects too, as well as home stuff. I'm just biting off more than I can chew.
