Week 5 of The WikiTree Challenge was incredible!
In an amazing show of collaboration, challenge participants added 633 profiles to his branches. There were 22 new direct ancestors and 83 nuclear relatives of ancestors. Nine of the new ancestors were new to Dr. Gates!
Altogether, over 50 members made 2,276 edits to his ancestor profiles. Many did research while others worked on free-space profiles, categorization, and contributed in other ways.
Here are some highlights from our discoveries:
Team Captain: Emma MacBeath
MVP: Nan Starjak
Bounty Hunters: Nan Starjak • Mary Jensen • Elaine Weatherall • Nick Andreola • Maddy Hardman • Carol Keeling
Special Mention: Morgan Mulligan for all of her valuable contributions! Also, to Mary Jensen who was, up until the final hour, the MVP for the week. Thank you both!
