Registration is open for the Source-a-Thon!

It will be going for 72 hours straight, October 1-3. Those are the first three days of Family History Month: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. We're including Monday so that those who are busy on the weekend can still participate.

"Sign me up!"

Yes, I would like to participate. Thank you.

Hi Brian. If you haven't already, please post again as separate answer. This makes it easier to assign the race number and communicate with you later, e.g. about joining one of the teams.

I am in Ohio, but I have done research in West Virginia and in Kentucky also.
please let me play too!

Abby, Thanks for registering me for Source-A-Thon. This is my first and I'm excited to participate.

Hi! I just posted in G2G to recruit for Team Missouri. It also includes states bordering Missouri, like Illinois. If you'd like to join that team, answer the G2G post at http://www.wikitree.com/g2g/294328/

Cheers, Shirley

I've been waiting for a cool number. Sign me up Abby.
by Anne B G2G Astronaut (1.2m points)
curses While I was awarding the badge on the other page someone beat me to my cool #222
You asked before I could get the other one closed! Any number is cool if you're wearing it, Anne :-)

Here's your bib: image

I promise not to drool on it, but I can't guarantee it won't have spaghetti sauce spots
I completely understand. Before kids I got to wear colors. Now, I apparently eat like them, so between them on my lap and me of my own accord, everything I own has spaghetti sauce spots on it or I just dress like Johnny Cash. Thank heavens for bibs! These are at least cool, right?
Yeah pretty cool. But there was something endearing about the little bib with the duck and the strained carrot stains, maybe mixed with a little beets. Although I think the beets were mostly on the walls.
Anne B, Sorry I got your number but I promise to take good care of it for you. Good luck with those prizes and fixes to the big tree.

Hi Patty! Could you log in to WikiTree and add a comment to your post? I need your WikiTree ID to award you the Source-a-Thon badge (and you need to join the WikiTree family to get a race bib - see details here).

Cheers, Liz

Here's your number again, Patty (you got your bib in the last registration thread and it looks like Anne gave you your badge then, too)

Thank you, I hope I've jumped through all the hoops to be ready for the weekend.

I don't think I've been given a number yet! 3rd try to do it right! Victoria, Australia is my best spot.
by Sandra Warren G2G Crew (930 points)

Hi Sandra! You're number 234!

http://www.wikitree.com/images/source-a-thon/bibs/234.png

Third try's a charm :D

ps - let me know when you sign the Honor Code so I can award you the Source-a-Thon badge. (Signing the Honor Code takes you from "Family Member" to "WikiTree Genealogist", which you'll need to be in order to participate in the Source-a-Thon - a WikiTree Genealogist can edit any Open profile.)

Cheers, Liz
I signed! Thanks so much for your help Liz!
Yay! Thanks Sandra :D

Hello Sandra!  I've just organised Team Australia for the Source-a-Thon, and we'd love to have you with us!

I'd like to participate. My expertise is southern California.

I posted a request to "play" on Sept. 6 but have not been given a number yet.
by Deborah Head G2G1 (1.4k points)
Hi Deborah! You have the Source-a-Thon badge, which means you were probably already given a number. Check your e-mails to see if you missed one from G2G. I'll also see if I can find your number.

Cheers,
Liz
found it... you're number 115 (I posted a reply to where you registered... hopefully you'll get that as an e-mail; I also posted to your profile).

Cheers, Liz

Hi Barbara! Please let me know your WikiTree ID. Thanks!

oh dang, Barbara. I assigned you a bib too fast - please let me know your WikiTree ID as soon as possible. I need your WikiTree ID to award you the Source-a-Thon badge (and you need to join the WikiTree family to get a race bib - see details here).

I think that means I'll need to "unassign" you #236 (I hope you're already a member and just forgot to sign in! Save me from my mistake :D)

Cheers, Liz

Thanks for contacting me Barbara & thanks for joining Source-a-Thon. You're officially & again number 236.
