Do I get a Sourcer badge also for this too.
Count me in......Team GB :)

Perhaps we could in future consider having validation-thons instead of sourcing-thons, because these are two different issues. Profiles with sources do not make them necessarily valid profiles. Half-cited sources (meaning: not strictly according to citation instructions general and on websites as are specifically stated) do also not validate profiles. And incorrectly added sources can actually de-validate profiles (has happened during the previous thon). So precise "sourcing" instructions should be included (in my humble opinion) in this thon, with specific attention to the detail of "how to add to existing bio's" - for example not removing the <references /> at the bottom.

Can I discourage all, as I like to win this year with our Team, by telling there are great telly series the weekend of 30 september till 2 oktober. I think that weekend all series of the Game of Thrones will be repeated!! Go you all watch Telly! :D :P I even payed all your neighbourgs to start a great but for all a long bbq party. :D

Of course joking!! Come on all! I just threw my priceless handkerchief in the arena waiting for what Jonkheer or Knight of a Brotherhood wins and will pick my handkerchief ........ :D Waiting for my father to tell me who I am gonna marry LMAO.

Whatever. The Dutch are invincable LOL............ Beware!!!!

But may the best and most honourable win. Good luck all in advantage!  

I am looking forward!!!



Please add me to the Team Forget-me-nots again for the source-a-thon, thank you

I'm joining Southern Super Sweepers

I'm in - belatedly!!

Can't believe that I had to be told about this by one of my team members!! LOL

I am the Leader and Captain of the Kiwi Crew team. We source mostly NZ profiles. I see that 3 team members have already signed up. LOL

If you are from New Zealand, or have any kind of NZ connection, and you want to help improve New Zealand Profiles, please sign up to this thread and state that you wish to join the Kiwi Crew team. We still have space available!!.


Go Kiwi Crew!!

Awesome, thanks, Robynne! You're number 42.

Thanks Eowyn!! Now how do these bibs work?
You can add them to your profile if you want.  The bib number is what we'll use when we draw prizes.  Some people like to put it as their Facebook photo through the Source-a-Thon.

answered by Dorothy Barry G2G Astronaut (1.2m points)
Woohoo!  Awesome name--awesome leader!

Awesome, Dorothy, thanks! You're #2.

Thank you Emma for your wonderful comment!! Thank you Eowyn for this year's badge. 

Hi Dorothy, I just registered.  Hoping I can join your team.
Yes Nicole, you are already on our membership list at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Southern_Super_Sweepers

Thank you for wanting to participate, I know you will do a great job!!
Joining again the Southern Super Sweepers. I was there from last year.
Hi Roger, thank you for joining again. We appreciate that very much. Did you make a separate post so you could get your badge and bib number???

 Southern Super Sweepers will win this year!!

Could you make a new post answering this question from Eowyn so she can issue you a badge and bib number for this year's challenge. (It has to be seperate from your comment on my answer here). That way you too will get a new badge as I mentioned. Thanks. 

I grew up in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama, USA. I don't know why I always cite my childhood home that way. Too many days on WikiTree I suppose. LOL. I would love to help with the Alabama profiles and source any known from Find A Grave. However, I can help, just let me know.

Will source mostly Swedish profiles. No use putting me in a competitive group though, I don't care if sourcing takes time as long as it is correct.

Fast or slow, good sourcing is key!!! Legacy Heirs would be so happy to have you join us.

Super, Maggie, thanks! You're number 7.

Does this mean Maggie has an alter-ego named James Bond??  LOL
No, the alter ego is Jamie Blond... :-D :-D (now I have to wear a blond wig)

Thanks for the badge Eowyn and thanks for the offer Lisa. If the Spic-n-Span Scandinavians won't be one of the teams this year I might take you up on the offer to join Legacy Heirs.
Hi Maggie,

Spic-n-Span Scandinavians is alive and well, so I'll add you to that list. You can even head it up, if you're interested ;-)

Thanks for the offer but I'm partially working that weekend (I know, bad planning) so I leave it for someone else.

You can add me to Spic-n-Span, as long as I'm not completely on my own, I know that someone from last time signed up for another team.

If you are looking for a team, Legacy Heirs would be so happy to have you join us.

Super, Debi, thanks! You're number 9.

So are the Flying Dutch :) Seems you have to choose :D
Sorry about the delay in replying. If the Southern Sourcerers team comes back again this year (neither Darlene nor myself can lead it), I'll opt for it. Otherwise, the Legacy Heirs already have a number of Saturday Sprinters so it looks like I'll fit right in. Would you hold me a tentative slot, Lisa?
Slot is there, just let me know or even go on the page and add your name.

Dixie Darlings do not have a leader yet, but there a number of team members; I'm sure they'd love to have you.


Wooo Hooo, welcome to the team Debi. Thank you for adding your name and joining Legacy Heirs. We are glad to have you.


Legacy Heirs

Oh, Lisa, you're going to hate me. I'm trying to catch up on my email now that the storm is over and just found out about the Southern Sourcerers having a leader. As I mentioned earlier, I want to stick with my original team if they're going to participate. I'm going to take my name back off the last. It looks like you've got a good slate with a good number of the Saturday Sprinters on are it. I'll be cheering them on from the sidelines.

Abby, I see that Sarah's going to lead the Dixie Darling/Southern Sourcerers team. Due to the timing and work commitments, I can't lead but will source with that team and cheer lead as much as possible.
I got it, Debi!
