Hi Steven,

Loved the color and various sized text...really grabs the attention!
Not sure where to post my guess total number of how much we get done. My guess is 175,000.
I unconnected a potential merge because I thought the wives were different people, but then found a source showing they were the same person. I said I corrected it, but I didn't. How do I fix my mistake?
I'd restart the merge, put the documentation for the wives matching on both wives, and then start the wife merge.
If I can freelance across the counties, count me in for the Mighty Oaks Connect a Thon please.

Linda -- the Connect-a-Thon signup thread is here :

Have you registered for the 2021 Connect-a-Thon yet?

I thought that answering this, was the registration.

No.  This one was the Clean-a-Thon.  You need to go  post an answer -- not a comment or reply -- to the thread I linked.

Hi Janet,

I signed up for the Spring Clean A Thon several weeks ago with the Mighty Oaks. I have not received the badge as yet. Is there a delay in signing people up and/or getting badged? I'm going to check now (again) to make sure I'm listed on the Team page for Cornwall, Devon and Bucks. Thanks!
Hi Carol,

There is no profile badge for this thon, the only Thon that gets Badges is the original Thon, the Source A Thon. I have you on the Might Oaks Team List alongside your name are your chosen counties.

All the best

I'm in and I want to clean up some suggestions of the infamous DeCoursey GEDCOM. If anybody wants to join me for that weekend we could create a "Team DeCoursey" ;).
by Jelena Eckstädt G2G6 Pilot (931k points)

I love the idea of tracking a specific gedcom. I can offer a few more wink

I took that one because it alone offers more than 15000 suggestions. And even if you don't try to find dates for the thousands of profiles that don't have any date, you have enough suggestions to get the number of suggestions significantly down.
This is a great idea.  It's amazing there are still so many suggestions.
Whoa!  I hope no one marks mine as "infamous!"  I'm working through my watchlist once again.

Hi Hun,

That is an amazing Idea. I think most, if not all, of us have had some dealings with that one. Legacy Heirs would love to have you join us.

 

Our team Chat is here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1200770/legacy-heirs-2021-spring-clean-a-thon-g2g-chat

Jane, I call that Gedcom "infamous" because, as Lisa stated correctly, most of us WikiTree-members who are here for several years, have had contact to this Gedcom. It is one of the oldest Gedcoms here, still of the times when there were no restrictions to the size of uploaded Gedcoms. This Gedcom has around 59k profiles, thousands of them don't have any date at all. This also was allowed then, but now it causes suggestions. And, on top of all those problems that come up because it was uploaded so early, I heard diligent contributors saying "I don't touch that Gedcom at all!" I think if this Gedcom loses some of its suggestions because there are people working at it, it will help the health of the Big Tree loads.
Jelena messaged on our team chat that she wants to be  on Legacy Heirs. I am putting you on the roster now, hun.
I am curious, how do you find the info on a Gedcom? I want to look at the suggestions on that one but am not sure how to get there.

If you go to the list Suggestions by Locations there is a section "Projects" and there the DeCoursey Gedcom has its own paragraph.

Super!! Thank you
Thanks, Jelena!
Thanks for the link to the suggestion report for the DeCoursey Gedcom. I've adopted a few of them and try to work on them every now & then. I've got the link bookmarked now.
