September's Sourcerers Challenge [closed]

+29 votes


Thank you so much to everyone who participated in August's Sourcerers Challenge. The August Top Sourcerer was Star Kline with <drum roll> 332 profiles improved. Great work, Star! 

The current All Time Top Sourcerer is Karen Tobo.

To see the rest of the results, check out the Sourcerers Challenge page.

Onto September's challenge:
Sourcerer Badge
We want to give our members some incentive, even more than the fact that we're making our tree that much better and reliable, and we'd like to encourage you all to add good sources to profiles. Good can be debatable, it's true, but at this point we're thinking anything other than referencing just another tree is good, so census data, BMD records/index references, family bible references, military documents, land documents, wills, etc. all help us with having a better sourced tree.

Each month we'll post in G2G to start up the month's challenge. You come and post the profile you've added source(s) to (at least the profile number/name, if not a link to it) as well as what sources you added and at the end of the month, we'll tally for a winner. You only need to answer the post once, and just edit your post to add your new profiles. To continue to post once your answer reaches it's max, just comment on your own post. See last month's challenge for examples.

* All profiles improved must come from the Unsourced categories < be already present on WikiTree and unsourced-you can't create new profiles and add sources just to up your tally. The hope and goal is to improve the numbers already on WikiTree that need sources. Adding sources will help merges happen, too, which will improve our tree. Showing folks what sources you're using helps newer researchers see just what's available out there for us to access.

* The tally is of profiles improved, not sources added.

* If you attempt to add sources to a profile and just cannot find any, please add a note under a section like === Research Notes === giving where you tried to find records and you can sign it with the four tildes (~~~~) so the date is applied as well. Something like "Looked for John in the US Census records for 1900-1940 and couldn't find him on FamilySearch or Ancestry" would be fine. Or, "Searched google for an obituary and didn't find one." That way the next researcher knows where to start.

* If the only source on a profile is "Ancestry tree" or "" it can count as unsourced, and you can add better sources to it to count in your tally.

We are now actively in our September Challenge, which will run through September 30th.  Ask any questions here in the thread, otherwise, GO!

When there is have a picture of a gravestone this seem to be in the category of a good reliable source. I nearly always add a FaG source if I find one, regardless of whether it has a picture or not. But at the same time I almost always have other sources added right on it's heals (generally from FamilySearch, usually  census records with occasional birth or marriage records.) It is just another arrow in the source quiver for me, good with picture, certainly less reliable when used for relationships and unsourced narrative.

My experience has been the reliability of FaG data, even when unsourced, is much better than the unsourced family trees, which often are copies of copies of copies.... FaG tends to not suffer from copy degradation you see in these.

Adding qualifying text on the source to indicate whether a picture is present would probably be an upgrade to the way I source, but I always include the link (It tend to source in an Evidence Explained style, but at the same time I use source info suggested on the Family Search pages because it is so darned easy, complete, and comes with a link), so you can easily determine what was derived from that source with one click.

The majority of people on WT (not the ones on the discussion forms like us) still do not source. I'd be happy with an FaG source from them instead of an "Entered by" or unsourced gedcom.

On the other hand you simply said "over-reliance" so maybe we are on the same page. ;-)
Marty, I think we're on the same page. Re: FaG, if there's a gravestone, I'd rather the reference be to the gravestone, and FaG is the place where the photo of the gravestone is published.

I'm glad you've had good experience with profiles there; in my experience, they are almost all unsourced.

What I'm trying to encourage here is for people to understand the distinction between information on the photograph of the gravestone and the user-entered additional information that may or may not be sourced.

The other thing it's important for us to understand even about the gravestones is when were they placed? Were they made/placed at the time of the person's burial? If not, how much later? I've seen people argue vociferously about "it must be true" based on information carved into a memorial stone that was placed 200 years after the person's death.

It wasn't true.

But I think I've digressed from the original purpose of this thread. My apologies, Abby.

Interesting thoughts. I certainly do encounter gravestones that have birth dates that do not match other sources with some frequency. It has to be assumed the date of birth on a gravestone is less reliable than a birth record given the data is not concurrent with the event of a death.

On a more personal note my stepdad has gravestones in two different cemeteries. The first is undated next to his first wife who passed at a rather early age, as they both bought plots together at the time. I was at his internment.

I also was taking pictures in a rural church cemetery a few years ago where some of the mid to late 19th century headstones had clearly been replaced as they had decayed. These also should be treated as a bit less reliable than the original. So many shades of gray in reliability.  

In regards to squabbling, my simply answer is to not confuse evidence with proof.

Also, sorry for the digression. By the way profiles, I happen to be sourcing this month do not even have FaG sources.
Do we remove the {{Unsourced}} notation in the profile?
Yes, please!
If you improve a Profile that has a Profile Manager, even though it is unsourced, should you PM that Manager and let them know what you have done? (in case they think that WikiTree is populated by poltergeists! LOL)
Hi Ros,

It's always nice to let Profile Managers know what you're doing-often they'll jump in and lend a hand, but you don't have to. They can look through the Changes tab on the profile and see who added what. Then, they can come thank you for helping them out a bit :-)

Thanks for participating and making WikiTree better!

As we're going through some of these, if related profiles aren't sourced, I assume we should add the unsourced category?
Bobbie, I have just been finding sources for the related profiles as well.  Mags
I am finding that FAG, with or without an image, or a book listing a reading of a cemetery, is often the ONLY source for an infant's (or child under 10) death in areas where no d. c. was yet required.

I did a bunch in August, but didn't post in the thread. So far in Sept, I've done:

  1. Murray Dobson-33 - marriage, death, parents names from death record
  2. Annie Chapman-189 - marriage, find-a-grave
  3. Robert Dobson-41 - searched for sources but couldn't find any (died in infancy)
  4. Edna Dobson-35 - 1901 census, marriage, death
  5. Harry Colpitts Chambers-73 - marriage, death, added parents names from death certificate
  6. Iris Chambers-75 - 1911 census
  7. Emma Jane Chambers-76 - marriage
  8. Alfred Munro Taylor-769 - marriage, parents names from death record
  9. Althea Dobson-36 - birth, findagrave
  10. George How-38 - death
  11. Frank Dobson-39 - birth, marriage, death, findagrave
  12. Laura Cunningham-56 - birth, marriage, parents names from death record
  13. Adelbert Chapman-183 - death
  14. Althea Cleveland-105 - death, parents names from death record
  15. Mary Chapman-184 - marriage
  16. Charles Fawcett-11 - marriage, death, parents names
  17. John Fawcett -14- birth, marriage
  18. Mae Tapley-3 - marriage, parents names from marriage record
  19. Mary Fawcett-15 - birth, marriage
  20. Allan John Crimmins-4 - marriage, parents names from marriage record
  21. Henry Adelbert Chapman-185 - birth
  22. Annie Chapman-187 - birth, marriage
  23. George McCoy - marriage, parents names from marriage record
  24. Hedley Chapman-193 - findagrave
  25. William Ashley Chapman-192 - 1881 census
  26. Edna Chapman-190 - marriage, death
  27. David Stewart-356 - marriage, parents names from marriage record
  28. Robert Stewart-357 - marriage
  29. Robert Andrew Chapman-188 - marriage, findagrave
  30. Mary Elizabeth Frost-117 - marriage, findagrave

These were all from a gedcom uploaded in 2010. Most have no profile manager, though a few scattered ones have been adopted. There are still plenty more to do. I've added the unsourced template to Mary Frost's parents, and all of her siblings (and likely their families) are still unsourced.

I will likely continue on with this family, or I'll pick another from the New Brunswick unsourced (as this is where I'm most familiar with the sources).  I have no expections to ever win the challenge, as I'll only do a few here and there when I have some spare time, but I'd love to have the Sourcerer's badge!

I do have one question - when we can't find a source, and note that on the profile (eg Dobson-41), should this still be marked as an unsourced profile, or not?

Great work Leanne.

To answer your question, yes, leave the unsourced template if you end up not finding any to add. Someone may be able to eek one out later if they know it still needs it.
Thanks Leanne. All contributions are welcomed and appreciated

We miss you in the October Sourcerers Challenge, Leanne. Come join the fun!

Oh, don't worry, I will! I haven't had a whole lot of time yet this month to spend on WikiTree, but when I have some time to spare, I'll add what I can :)

I decided to try a few and fear this will become addictive:

1. : Scituate baptism, marriages & death sources
2. : Scituate marriage, father's will.
3. : marriage info
4. : birth, marriage, parents
5. Marriage & death sources
6. marriage
7. marriage
8. marriage
10. birth

You are right about this becoming addictive, Bobbie - I fear that some of us may need to join Sourcerers Anonymous if this challenge keeps going!
I will join the group ;) Is it near Amsterdam perchance?
Thank you Bobbie, And yes this is definitely addictive. That's why I'm still sitting here at 11:15 and wikitree will be the second thing I do in the morning.

Wow, looking at some of the other lists, I begin to feel, for lack of a better word ... inadequate​ :D

This is what addiction looks like!
Bobbie, Some of us sit in front of our computers all day and do nothing but Wikitree. Some of us (not me) have other lives. You evidently fall into the second category.
Not according to my husband, Anne! :D

Just so you don't think, I'm whacked - I hit the wrong spot. But it can't hurt your G2G points to be voted a best answer if only for a few days, when someone actually is declared the winner. Thank you for your contributions to sourcing.
I just thought you were a super enthusiastic member of the Nantucket Project :)

Anne, Thank you for sourcing profiles. I just realized we could be the same person Anne B... and Anne Baker. I think the last time I checked my surname was spelled differently :D. Have a good day.

Snort!!! You may be knew at this challenge, but I know you aren't new to sourcing. Thank you.
Sorry Anne,  What I meant the explanation to what I did to the profile is brief ( I noticed some people really explain everything they did - and I didn't - my reasoning is that it was unsourced and now it isn't so everything there must be something I did, I would think!)   :D
