The WikiTree Challenge: Will you join an October team? [closed]

+17 votes

We are in the midst of our most ambitious community event ever: The WikiTree Challenge.

Each week in 2021, a team of WikiTreers is collaborating 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.

Can you participate in any of these weeks? 

  • Week 40: Oct 6 - Oct 13 Shelley Murphy the Family Tree Girl
  • Week 41: Oct 13 - Oct 20 Roberta Estes a pioneer of genetic genealogy
  • Week 42: Oct 20 - Oct 27 Irene Cornish whose great-grandparent's marriage record was returned to her
  • Week 43: Oct 27 - Nov 3 James Tanner a genealogy author and blogger

To register, simply post an answer below (not a comment) and say something like "I want to participate in weeks 41 and 42."

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 

For more information on how to work during the challenge, see The WikiTree Challenge: Improving Profiles
