The Source-a-Thon is coming! Would you like to donate a prize?

+26 votes

Hi WikiTreers!

Our sixth annual Source-a-Thon is coming up in a month: October 1-4. 

In the past, some WikiTreers have generously donated prizes for the event.

Would you like to donate a prize? It can be anything that would be fun or valuable to genealogists.  

For example, in past years some WikiTreers have donated research time and/or DNA analysis, cool artwork like a painting they've done, a t-shirt or a genealogy related book.

Please note you'll need to ship the prize to the winner, and that the minimum value is $50.

Post below if you are interested and I will get in touch.

Thank you!

Evenin', Eowyn. I'll donate the book Advanced Genetic Genealogy: Techniques and Case Studies. Edited by Debbie Wayne Parker, within the more than 400 pages are a smorgasboard of 14 chapters each written by a different luminary in the field, like our own Ann Turner, Debbie Kennett, and Blaine Bettinger.

This will ship directly from Amazon, so I'm afraid delivery will be limited to continental U.S. addresses.

by Edison Williams G2G6 Pilot (326k points)
Nice! Thank you Edison!
Oops. I didn't give you a value for the book. Don't know if that's needed, but it's US$49.95 if so. Also, I'll be out of the country from the 3rd through the 9th; I'll try to respond quickly to the prize winner, but it's possible I could have a day or so lag until I get back.
Okay,  thanks for letting us know!

I can donate research time for someones Swedish ancestors but would like to discuss "conditions" first, there need to be some concrete facts that I can start working from. If I could be contacted I will explain better.
by Maggie Andersson G2G6 Pilot (131k points)
Hi Maggie, can you give a specific amount of research time?
2 prices of 2 hours each.

Since nobody contacted me I will write my conditions here. Any winner must understand I can not do miracle work. I can not look for "Anders Johansson, thought to have been born in Sweden in the 1870's who possibly immigrated to US in 1890's". For me to do research, there needs to be an accurate birth date and place as a starting point.

Edited to add: The time can also be used for translation, for example old letters in Swedish, if anyone would like to.
