Oh how nice ! A new team for Pennsylvania?
Yep, and it's full!


Can you move all of these to an answer to this question? See the Source-a-thon tutorial for step-by-step directions. Thanks!

Abby, I am trying to move all my answers, but I am not sure how. There isn't an edit button. I think I started my own thread and copied and pasted the ones I did last night and I have two more to add. Not sure how people are getting so many done. I thought you need to write the bio and add the sources. Is just one source ok?  I also can't seem to figure out how to get the number to show up like the others are. :(

Hi, Nikki. To make a numbered list, select the text to be numbered, and then click on the icon above that has "1" and a couple of lines followed by "2" and a couple of lines. After the numbered list gets started, the next time you hit "Return" or "Enter" on your keyboard, it will take you to the next line and automatically number it sequentially. Hope that helps. --- Beverly
Hi Nikki,

We're only focusing on sources this go 'round, so yes, one source will suffice. It's absolutely awesome if you want to add more than that. That's how people are going through so many so quickly, though. We're happy with anything you can contribute :-)

Argh. I started with a puzzle. Found a FindAGrave Memorial for the 1st profile I selected - but the person then shows up in the next census 4 years later. And the 2nd profile selected had a son Leroy who was 10 years old in 1930 and 11 years old in 1940! I love sourcing, but if the day goes like this, I will need extra strength ibuprofen by day's end. <wink>

  1. Kitty Ahn - burial and 1860 census; added research question
  2. Tillie E. Ahn - middle name, husband's name, 3 children, residences; added research question

Coming in a little late. This is a bad weekend for me, but will do as much as I can. The procedure is different than I thought it would  be. (Had hoped to put in sources for some of the profiles I manage, but will follow the directions and see what I find.)

I agree with your comment above, Nikki. I don't know how the others are adding so many sources, so quickly. It takes a lot of time because I am very careful to ensure that I am entering sources for the correct people. I'd hate to see someone climbing the wrong family tree because I was rushing and made a mistake that could have been avoided. Every source we can add, even at our slower pace, helps the overall goal. So, don't worry about a race.
Many of mine are one census record for an entire family.  so there will be six or eight profiles sourced with one piece of information.

And I try to stay in the late 19th and early 20th century. Those sources are easy to find.  In fact, I am taking a break from Pennsylvania profiles because sourcing the earlier ones is exhausting.  I went to work on the one that says ANS.  Apparently there are 1000 unsourced profiles with the surname Ayer.

You are all doing a GREAT job!!  

My sourcing came to a halt yesterday when my son got injured during his football game.  All is well now.  Just a really bad sprained ankle and twisted foot that is going to take some time to heal.

Happy sourcing!
