The WikiTree Challenge: Will you join a February team?

+27 votes

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."
