Thank you to everyone who participated in February's Sourcerers' Challenge. The February Top Sourcerer was Star Kline, with 388 profiles improved. Way to go, Star!

The current All Time Top Sourcerer is Robert Keniston with 2545 profiles improved. Fantastic :-)

For the month of February there were 27 Sourcerers and 1,758 profiles sourced, making our total for 2016 3602 profiles so far.

Wonderful work, everyone! To see the rest of the results, check out the Sourcerers Challenge page.

We want to up the ante for the rest of 2016. The sources you all are adding are fantastic. Now that WikiTree has done some work on clarifying what we ask for in citing a source, your sources need to be cited as closely to the recommended Sources help page as possible, or they cannot count towards your tally. That means, if there is a link to the work mentioned, you must include it. If it is a page from a book, the page needs to be included so others can easily see where you found the reference. The more specific, the more useful the source. 

We can also do a bit more while adding sources, like clean up the gedcom leftovers or help the formatting from older profiles. Sources are important, but if you can't find them among all the other stuff, they aren't helping as much as they could.

Onto March's challenge:

You only need to answer the post once, and just edit your post to add your new profiles, continuing in a comment on your answer as necessary. Please number your contributions (a number every ten or hundred works just fine). It helps us tally at the end of the month much faster. See last month's challenge for examples.

* All profiles improved must come from the Unsourced categories <http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Unsourced_Profiles  or 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. Another great source of unsourced profiles is to check out orphaned profiles.

* The tally is of profiles improved, not sources added. That said, if you can add a number of sources to a profile, all the better. Maybe we'll switch things up and see how many sources added y'all can do one month.

* 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 "Geni.com" it can count as unsourced, and you can add better sources to it to count in your tally.

* If you find a match and can merge a profile into an already source profile, that counts, too. You still found a source, plus you eliminated a duplicate. Awesome!

We are now actively in our March Challenge, which will run through March 31st. Ask any questions here in the thread, otherwise, GO!

Yep, what Carolyn said. Thank to both of you!
Thank you! Abby & Carolyn
Beulah, I think you posted this in the wrong comment section. Needs to go on your comment area.

I was working away -- busy busy, then "restarting windows, installing windows 10". I had 4 programs running plus my browser. Never mind, windows operating system took over. I was never going to install windows 10 as I have a crappy computer but my wishes did not count. Three hours later (and its late) I am back on but now there will be a learning curve.  Woe is me ... :-(

Just had to vent.

I feel your pain Myrtis. I had a survey question on some site that asked when or if I was upgrading to Windows 10. I said NEVER - course I have a MAC
Anne B, My husband has 2 MACs and he has been trying for years to get me to switch.  I am thinking it is about time.  I was a computer analyst and I am so dependent upon the applications that I use. But even those applications are slowly being fazed out or one can only use them by a month-to-month paid subscription. Either go with the flow or find a new river. :)
I've used both for long periods of time, so have no problem switching between one and the other. About the only noticeable difference is what they call things. And the close X buttons are in different corners. My husband had a PC, but then it got something that ate all the documents on it. So I bit the bullet and spent the money for a Mac for him too.
Is there a way to see the standings of the current challenge, see who you're up against? ;)
Not until the end, Antonia.  There is no automated count - it's all manually done by Abby.  And she has her work cut out for her this month!  I've been doing an unofficial count every few days, and 11 participants had 100 or more improved profiles as of yesterday.
Okay, I only ask because I read through the comments and thought I saw someone mentioning it. At least I know now I'm not chasing my own tail trying to find it :)

I have decided to join the challenge. As I am reviewing some of the improved profiles I see some sources that go to a generic search page and others that go to page not found. I will be using familysearch as my sources, as they provide the source information that I only have to copy/paste.  I like easy.

Great job on this profile, Debi.  You may want to consider adding the WWI tag to Adam's profile - see The Great War Project page.

Thanks, Star. I figured there was probably some project he should be part of but I couldn't figure out what. Is there not a way to just show he was in the Army without dates? I only know his draft registration date at this point and that's not really a join date.
What I've done is list unknown for the dates, hoping I'll find the dates with further research.
Debi,

You might want to check "Fold3" for more dates about his service dates and branch of service. If you have some of his vitals (like DoB) you can quickly find the right individual.

Igor
Thanks for the heads up, Igor. Maybe I'm missing something but it looks like I have to register and give a credit card to see the search results at Fold3. I'm not prepared for another subscription at this point. If there's a way to see the info without doing that, would you point me to it.
Yes, 2 ways on a limited budget (I don't have a subscription either).
(1) Your local library probably has in-house subscriptions to Ancestry and Fold3. (They probably allow remote access, but premium is at library use only.)
(2) Your "local" FHC has a "magic" set of PCs. The "FHL Portal icon" has access to many premium sites including Fold3. The downside is "local" may be a bit of a drive depending on where you live.
(local for me used to be 17 miles in Austin, we now have a church & FHC in Round Rock about 2 miles from home.)

  I'll add for other readers, you don't have to be LDS to use FHC resources.

 Both solutions are subject to operating hours but cheap ...

Igor
Thanks. My library has those subscriptions but I don't get there often. I'll add this to the list of things to look up next time I'm there.
I had a little help getting started this month. Three merges that I had been waiting on to either time out or be approved by the other manager finally happened. Three bios that I had already completed merged in to unsourced profiles. The rest of the month will be slower going.

58. William Adolphus Whitley. marriage
59. Mattie (Clayton) Whitley. marriage, 1900 and 1910 Census

65. M.D. Haigler. Initiated merge of 2 unsourced profiles; cleaned up merged profile, death, research notes with sources regarding mother's surname
66. Homer Helms. gedcom cleanup; birth & WWII Draft registration
67. Lula (Phillips) Helms. gedcom cleanup; marriage, death, gravestone, and 1910 Census

You are really on a roll this month, Debi - keep up the great work!
Thanks, Star. It kind of feels like cheating since about a quarter of these are my own gedcom imports that I'm cleaning up. Everything had some kind of source but .... yea, not good ones that anyone else could find. Most of the sources were to correspondence I had ten years ago with other researchers. So I'm following up on the clues those researchers provided, finding the original sources and counting them, darn it!
Thanks Debi for sourcing the unsourced.
Thanks, Anne. I found a new to me source last night that has some real potential for Lynchburg, Virginia, profiles. Now if I can just figure out how to find them.
Wonderful additions, Debi. Thank you!

You're already ahead of me, Igor.  May the luck of the Irish be with you in your research!
Hi Igor, thanks for sourcing this month.

Interesting name you have. Igor together with Rowen.

My mother was a Rowan. My great grandfather Joseph Rowan was from Dunkineely, Bruckless, Donegal
It's a name I picked up in High School, more than 40 years ago. My mother even preferred it to the one she gave me (but that's a whole different topic).

My Rowen surname was probably Roan back in County Roscommon.

Igor
Thank you for your sources this month, Igor!
What a fascinating study on these Dedham tenants.

Hi Shirley... Are you trying to add to my list, or start your own?
I'm new here but am not trying to start my own.  I found these and just trying to correct.  Maybe I'm not ready to do this.  Sorry for any inconvenience as someone who didn't mean anything about suggesting and doing what I did.  Sorry
I think I will instead of working here I will look at the ones that don't have sources.  I believe that is the best area.  Otherwise I don't know what I'm doing here.  It's very confusing.  Shirley
Welcome to the group, Shirley. There's no need to apologise. I was just wondering what you were trying to do, in case I could help somehow.
Oh yes, I know it can be quite confusing at first.  This "Sourcerer's" challenge is about finding sources for profiles that don't have any. If you want to join in, I believe all you need to do is create a post by using the "answer" link under the main post at the top.  I think there is a different project for creating and completing merges, too... can't remember what it is now... Take care and good luck!  :)

Since I've seen some comments by people who get annoyed by other people going in and editing profiles that they're working on, I've decided to focus on profiles which either haven't been edited for at least a year, or are unowned, just so I don't step on anybody's toes.

Thanks for your note, Greg.  I'm glad you weren't discouraged by the negative comments you received.  I never received any comments like that before, but I received three during the February Challenge.  Like you, I think I'll focus on the Orphaned profiles, since many of them have no good sources.

That's good advice.  I'll probably do the same.
Looks like you've increased your number of improved profiles by 60% over your contributions last month.  You really are breathing down Robert's neck!
So many people are going great guns this month that I suspect that my ranking is going to go down, rather than up. But that's all to the good. More sources means that the database as a whole is that much more accurate. (And, among other things, I'm a database geek, so seeing data cleaned up warms the cockles of my heart.)

Greg
According to my calculations, you've moved up to 23.  Way to go, Greg!  I'm cheering you on to move up another position!
You did it, Greg!  Up to #22.  Now if you and I quit crunching numbers and get back to sourcing, we'll both improve our stats.
Did you know that you improved more than 4 times the number of profiles as your previous personal best (last month - 22 profiles improved)?  Way to go, Greg!!
If I'm going to start making Bob sweat, I'd need to do ten times as many!
Nice going Greg. Maybe you'll be like the turtle in the race and catch Bob that way. Thanks for sourcing.
Wow, Greg, what a month! Bob better keep his eye on you ;-)

Great job with these pre-1700 profiles, Anne.
Fantastic sourcing as expected, Anne. Thanks for participating ('cause I know you added much more than those!)

Well, not sure if I'm on a roll or a rampage here, been going through possible matches to my profiles, finding a couple who are a closed loop father-son-father-son... duh, left some notes for the manager since they are green, been talking to that manager for a while now so I know he will act.  Anyways, here goes again, usual source unless otherwise stated is Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Drouin Collection), 1621-1997, with links to the actual acts, not accessible to everybody since it's subscription based though.  But there are enough people who do have subscriptions to be able to double-check if needed.

You've done a great job sorting through confusing entries, Danielle!
Thanks again Danielle for joining the Sourcerer's Challenge.
Been rather absent this month, flu bug got a hold of me rather nastily.  Should be able to get back on track next month.
Great de-tangling, Danielle. Thanks for those additions. I hope you are feeling better!

Have stumbled into a wildly inaccurate, orphaned gedcom upload from 2011 with Swedish forebears of an emigrant (sourced from an Ancestry tree) and started re-researching. Adding sources as given from the page at Arkiv Digital. Example: Eda C:6 (1764-1797) Bild 94 / sid 181 (AID: v6051.b94.s181, NAD: SE/VA/13091)

  2. Persdotter-256 - birth and marriage (also found the correct parents for her)
  3. Andersdotter-Barnsmorka-1 - marriage, census and death (also removed a bigamist husband and their children; still more work to be done as Barnsmorka is not a surname, but a misinterpretation of her profession as barnmorska = midwife)

  6. Olofsdotter-143 - birth

That sounds like fun Eva.
Well, its interesting: on the positive side it's interesting to "visit" parts of the country where I don't have kin. On the negative side it's interesting to see how peoplem don't reason ;-)
Great contributions, Eva!  You must really like puzzles.  I'm so glad you joined this challenge.
Thanks! I do love puzzles. Also, I like to be able to contribute to keeping the wikitree accurate.
Like you, I also like puzzles, Eva.  The accuracy of WikiTree is very important to me, too, which is why I add multiple sources rather than only one as required by this challenge.
This gedcom disintegrates into family-size chunks as I work with it. Sometimes families from widely different parts of the country (and different social class) cobbled together. At other times family chunks cobbled together by attributing parents younger than their grandchildren. Googling for clues as to when and where to look for the primary sources I come across sites where these spurious loops are repeated, citing wikitree as a source. Better keep cleaning up ;-)

Taking a break from the messy gedcom, instead working through a family entered as "firsthand knowledge" in 2012 (although persons are from the 1700s and 1800s). The profiles are now orphaned. They also happen to be what connects me to Kevin Bacon ;-) - so I recognized the older parts as legit. However sourcering was trickier than I thought.

Eva.  Welcome to WikiTree.  ArkivDigital is an awesome  source.  You might consider using the template.

Well, I did consider, and found it much too cumbersome. I guess the Arkiv Digital template is what the category page calls a source shortcut template. As such it isn't officially recommended; well neither is it officially recommended against, but should they be required in the future it seems like a splendid way for scaring away newbies.

Also, Arkiv Digital is not a source, the old church records are - and they may be accessed in several different ways. For the latest batch I mostly used SVAR, for a change.

But then you need to indicate on the profile that you are using SVAR.  I have modified Susana Malmgren's profile to illustrate how I use ArkivDigital with its template.  I did it twice, the second time with the least I would include using the template.  ArkivDigital allows all pertinant data to be stored and I print this on the profile, cut and paste and then delete it.  Norm 

It definitely helps to add a direct link to the source referenced if you grabbed it off the internet. I often add a link to Ancestry if that's what I'm working from, then come back later and search it out on Familysearch.org when I have more time to change it to something free for those who don't subscribe. At the very least, the link to something behind a paywall can still be accessed by some and a call out on G2G usually brings up someone willing to go look at it if help is needed. Links are always great in sources, though. It makes it a lot easier to collaborate when we can see what you see in adding them. Thanks for all the sourcing from everyone this month so far!
Thank you for the sourcing, Eva; glad to have you here this month!
Thanks Abby! It has been educational.

Towards the end of the month I mostly went over to my own material. I've got a lot and I'm entering it person by person, so it takes some time.

Beautiful work on these profiles, Laurie.  I think you handled the email sourcing perfectly, since the person who added it as a source didn't provide adequate information - Caroline with no last name, no email address, and no date.
Thank you Laurie for cleaning up the unsourced.

Great work, as always, Karen. Thanks for the merges, too. You should take credit for Belcher-1353.  As Abby mentions in her note about the this month's challenge:

* If you find a match and can merge a profile into an already source profile, that counts, too. You still found a source, plus you eliminated a duplicate. Awesome!
Thank you Karen for the sourcing this month

Great job, Henry.  Thanks for the reminder to look at our own unsourced profiles.
Did you know that you have improved almost 4 times as many profiles as your previous personal best (August 2015 - 13 profiles improved)?  Way to go, Henry!!

Thank you, Star.

I bought myself a used copy of the Genealogical Dictionary of Maine and New Hampshire, which, as far as I know, is not available on line. Since I have been concentrating on the families of New Hampshire, this book is of great help. I think it is regarded as pretty accurate, so I have cited it as a source many times. (Anderson himself cites it, so it must be reliable.) If the print wasn't so small, I could probably have done more.

That's great, Henry.  Adding a source that others have no access to is really valuable, since many of us have access only to the free online sources.
Thanks for sourcing this month Henry. I'm related to Biddle's also, but you're Biddle arrived in the US before my Biddles.
Nice sources, Henry. Glad to have you with us again this month-thank you!

Terrific work, Vincent!.  I like the way you add * ''Add [[sources]] here.'' at the end of your list of sources.  This helps people to know where to place the next source - I'll start doing that, too.  I always learn something from looking at the work of others - thanks!
Hi Vincent, thank you for sourcing in March :)
Happy to see you've come back, Vincent. I know this is just a smattering of what you actually add to the Tree. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us here.

Nice work, Nancy!  Thanks for joining the challenge this month.
Thanks for the encouragement Star. This really is a challenge! Can I remove the gedcom upload info? Seems all the Tackett profiles are gedcom imports and haven't been touched since, or information added but not sourced.  Once I figure out which William belongs to who, I am almost certain there will be merges, but judging from the dates, and the process of proposing the merge etc., this could take a while.

 The profile of Lewis Tackett that I ended up spending a lot of time on is a Huguenot founder in Virginia. I felt I should complete it. If it needs to merged how do you make sure information is not lost? I believe I read somewhere on the forum that it happens sometimes. Still new at some of these things but enjoying the process. Thanks again.

You will find a lot of old profiles that were imported and never cleaned up.  When you see a biography that begins with "This biography is a rough draft." - BEWARE!  It really is rough sometimes!

It's a good idea to clean up the gedcom junk, because it will make it easier for you, and future researchers, to read the profile.  You may want to read the GEDCOM-created biographies page for some helpful tips on cleaning up these old profiles.

You are absolutely right about the Merge process, Nancy.  It takes a while to do it right.  Better to leave profiles unmerged until you have the sources and data that make you confident in requesting a merge.  Fixing an accidental merge can be a real headache!  You can read more on the Merging help page.

Thanks Star, I reviewed policy and style today, and happened to run across the GEDCOM auto created biographies section. I'm glad I did. I think you are right about leaving some things on the biography, and proceeding with caution on the merges. I doubt I will get a response from most of the profile manager(s) as it appears they may be inactive. That's okay, I can wait while doing more research. Thanks again for your response.
Hi Nancy.  slow and steady really works on Wikitree. Like you, I find a lot of my work by searching here for my own ancestors. Thank you so much for taking the time, to sort out the profiles that are already here.
Thank you for being a Sourcerer, Nancy. We're glad to have you with us!
Thanks Anne, I ended up going over lots of prior and new research still trying to figure some things out.
Thanks Abby I'm happy I joined. It really is a challenge. I had some fun and I'm ready to try again.

Mary, this is a truly impressive list of sourced profiles. Thank you for each and every one of them.
Mary, I love how you add several sources to each person. It creates a much clearer picture for others to add to. Thank you!

Beautiful work, Ros!  I'm hoping that all the work you and John are doing on Cornwall profiles will eventually help me with my distant family line in that area.  I know that sounds selfish, but I hope it lets you know that the work you do during this challenge really does help other researchers.

Thanks, Star!  I took a look at some of your Cornish folk, and immediately found a research query: Peter Eva and Mary Sincock were married in 1782, well after several of the children were born.  This made me think - was there a first wife who died, and Peter remarried Mary? or perhaps Mary or some of the children should not be in this family at all.  What do you think? I have also PMd the manager.

Thanks for looking into the Eva's, Ros.  I can't really tell what's going on with the Peter Eva family from the profile.  Could also be Mary's children from a previous marriage, and they took on the name Eva? Or maybe Peter was previously married to Mary's sister who died young, so he married her because she already knew the kids?   Definitely more research needed here.

Congratulations, Ros, on surpassing your previous personal best (100 improved profiles in February)!
Thanks, Star.  I REALLY appreciate you noticing.
Thanks once again Ros, for participating in the Sourcerer's Challenge
Nicely done, Ros. Did you ever get them connected? Sometimes those connections are so hard to find. Thank you for joining us again this month!
Unfortunately no, I never did.  Often, families from England are the most difficult to connect if they never went anywhere, especially the US.

BTW, I may not be able to do much in April, as I am participating in the annual A-Z Challenge with three blogs...
