I'm pretty sure I'm registered but I don't have my bib number?
Thanks, Liz, I clearly overlooked that.
no worries Lynn - you're not the first :D

I want to register and get a race bib # - thank you

Definitely I'm in.  Can't wait

Hi Joelene - you posted a "comment" to this G2G question. You need to post an "answer".

Scroll up from this comment of mine until you see "answer" (at the right margin of text... about where "edit" is below your own comment, but it's below the the main G2G question. A couple of lines below where it says "Please post an answer, ..." 

Cheers, Liz

I would love to join but I'm not sure which group to join. I'm in Colorado. Possibly a Midwestern group?
I'm in.
Hi Cindy! You'll need to post an answer (instead of a comment). If you scroll up from my reply (a ways), you'll get to the bottom of the initial G2G post, where you'll see a clickable "answer" toward the right-hand margin. That's what you need to click to open a window to post an answer instead of a comment. Cheers, Liz

I'd love to help with the Source A Thon.  I have some plans that weekend, but I can definitely spend some time on this!

I'd like to join 'Suid Afrika Team Springbokke' as most of my heritage is South African and I've been working on that.

Hi all,

I would like to participate in the Source-a-Thon.

I'll be a bit busy on the weekend but I'll be available on the Monday.

I'm quite new but I'm getting good with certificates in France, and that could be helpful to some European teams. I can work as well on English and Spanish documents, even some other languages if necessary like Italian.

Hi Terri! You're bib #266:


Thanks for joining the 2017 Source-a-Thon!

And to quote Abby from another poster who offered to head up a team - AWESOME!

Here's more of what she said:

All you need to do is create a space page for the team, put it in the Challenges Teams category and a brief description, then if you watch the sign up posts, a bit you can "recruit" some team members. Aleš can set up lists of unsourced profiles for you, if you give him criteria. And, most importantly, put your team on the Source-a-Thon Teams page :-)

Thanks for stepping up and leading one!

The Source-a-Thon Teams page is


To add your Space page for The Northwest Vikings to the Challenges Teams category, add [[Category:Challenges Teams]] to it. Once you have your Space page, let me know if you need help to add it to https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Source-a-Thon_Teams

Cheers, Liz

Not sure what to do with the bib number but I saw an answer to someone that they needed to post on the thread when they've selected a team. I am bib #169. Where is a comprehensive guide to Source-a-thon 2017? I have a hard time finding what I am looking for.

I have joined Équipe Acadie - Team Acadia.

I normally don't do the source-a-thons because I prefer just to work on my own time, but I think I'll give it a try this time.  My problem is I can't decide which team. I wish Acadians and Cajuns were together... 

 I guess it will be Équipe Acadie - Team Acadia

I've had to think about this only because I'll be unavailable almost all day Monday the 2nd, but decided several caffeinated hours over the weekend might still be of some help.  :-)

If the Southern Sourcerers will have this rookie, I'm probably most adept with finding sources in some of the states in their territory.


by Edison Williams G2G6 Pilot (324k points)
Argh!  You sure we can't snag you for Team A Rose for Any Other Name? We are a general team that works on location(s) and surname(s) of each member's choice. Sure would love to have you! And I snorted when I saw you call yourself a rookie. There, it made me snort again ;-)

If your team will have me, I'm yours!

And, okay, maybe "rookie" is the wrong connotation. More like a '67 Volkswagon Beetle compared to a 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon.

But still a rookie at Source-a-Thoning.

"Source-a-Thoning"? "Source-a-Thonning"?  :-/

Yay!! Of course we would love to have you!  Your amazing sense of humor will keep up our team spirit.  That alone is golden :-)  and the '67 Volkswagon was an awesome car.  They don't make them like they used to ;-)

I will send you a message and add you to our team ASAP.

Hi Edison! You're bib #280:


Thanks for joining the 2017 Source-a-Thon!

Glad to see another guy on the Southern Sourcerer Team...Looking forward to a fun weekend.

Sorry, Dean. Since, if this were a pick for teams at recess, I'd be the last genealogist left standing in the schoolyard, when Emma actually asked me to be on Team A Rose, I couldn't say no.
