Will you participate in the Source-a-Thon? Current registrations (9 of 9) [closed]

+16 votes

Registration is open for the Source-a-ThonSource-a-Thon runners

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.  

If you can participate by sourcing Unsourced Profiles during any of those hours, tell us in an answer below.  

After you post, a Team Member or Leader will give you the Source-a-Thon badge and a "race number". A number is required in order to be eligible for the $4,850 in door prizes being donated from around the genealogy community.  

(Please post an answer, not a comment. Make sure you're signed-in. Include your locality or the location or genealogical topic you like to research. We will group participants into teams to make participation easier and more fun. If you posted on a previous sign-up thread (1, 2, 3456, or 7) don't post again.)

Thanks Liz.   Glad it's not 666 !!   Do you want me to start another UK/GB Team as Ros'   Team is full.
I think starting teams is off the table at this point, but you might want to make that offer to Abby - she's working on assigning registered folks to teams as we speak.

Cheers, Liz

Hello, I need a number please. Thank You

Ruth Henry
by Ruth Henry G2G6 (6.1k points)
Ruth, you already have a number. It's 521
Where can I find it?
I just put it on your profile too as a message. Do you belong to a team ?
Ruth entered a request to join the Midwest team, so I'm assuming she still wants to help us there.

I'm already in (#127), but a question:  I've been poking around scoping out some sites I'd like to source, but often there is no bio to source!  Are we supposed to add some bio details and then source them for this -thon, or just source the ones that have something to source?
by Robert Hvitfeldt G2G6 Pilot (145k points)
Robert, excellent question as I was wondering myself and double-checked with the leaders. For the sake of ease, just one source needed per profile.

If you want to go back after the source-a-thon and add biographies later, that's good.
I will like to be added for GA, NC, Great Britain,  Ireland, and East India immigrants.
