We are in the midst of our most ambitious community event ever: The WikiTree Challenge.
Each week in 2021, a team of volunteers collaborates on the tree of a special genealogy guest star. Our challenge is to make their genealogy more accurate and complete than it is anywhere else. Here are all the details: Help:WikiTree_Challenge.
Update: We broke our 500th brick wall during a July challenge! Can we break another 500 before the year is up?
Please reply here if you can participate in any of these weeks:
Week 31: Aug 4 - Aug 11 Drew Smith
Week 32: Aug 11 - Aug 18 (Rest Week)
Week 33: Aug 18 - Aug 25 Deidre Erin Denton
Week 34: Aug 25 - Sep 1 Amy Johnson Crow
To register, simply post an answer below (not a comment) and say something like "I want to participate in weeks 31 and 32."
Remember that you don't need to be skilled in the records for those ancestor locations. Things you can do to help:
- Write biographies for others
- Work with the Category project for needed categories
- Add relevant resource links for others to use (to blogs, etc.)
- Check the G2G post occasionally and notify the captain of questions
- Keep an eye on Discord in case others need help
- Upload pictures that were approved by the guest to that weeks Space page
- Search a paid site you belong to for obituaries and articles
