Is it too late to participate?  Thanks.
Hi Betty, no you still can register (until 28 September) :) (add an answer)
Thank you, Bea!
Hi Betty, not sure if it was clear, but to register and get a badge and bib nr, all you have to do is, instead of adding a comment to this G2G, you will have to add an answer. So if you look right above your first comment, you will see the option '''answer''' click on it and let us know you would like to participate  :D
Thanks again, Bea.
Always a pleasure Betty ;)
love this site.......
Me too! :)
Betty......... :D You need to anwer to join SaTh. :D Or you will be too late. :D Go to the main message at top here and click the answer key!!! ---> like here!!!:  http://prntscr.com/gqjy0k

And chose a team! :D And add that to your answer! Hahha Thank you!

Source-a-thon Team Lists

I'm Partial to the Nor"Easters myself. ;)  But pick your team, comment it in your answer, and wait for your Bib#.

Janet Sue White, bib 408 left a note on Team New Yorks page asking to join.  I sent her a message to apply at the place she signed up.  Hopefully
she will see it in time.
Now I'm wondering.  Who adds names to the team list on the Team page?
Thanks, Astrid!  All signed up and ready to go!
Hi Beulah,

 If members know how it works they can sometimes add themselves, if they are not certain or don't know how they can post a message including their bib nr at the team page and the team captain/leader or a friendly fellow teammate can enter their names and bib nr to the list, most team leaders will check this G2G every now and then and will invite and add members also ;)

it`s one small world....

What? Lol!
got relatives all over the world, and never met them, doh.....
Doh is correct lol. And to think I even started to get Its a Small World in my head after reading that. I guess when your research either runs into brick walls when it leaves the US or stays in the US for a very long you can forget about potential family members outside the US.
i be still scratching my head.....

Hi Gerald! You're bib #430:

I have tracked down many sources both in my family and for random tie-ins in the Downeast Maine section. This sometimes bounces me all over New England and occasionally as far as Oregon. If you have something in my area I'd love to help.

My father's ancestors were all New England, primarily Rhode Island and Connecticut. (A little Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine). I have been concentrating on families in Portsmouth, Newport, Rhode Island. I have been working on cemeteries in Newport, adding in the older people, if I can tie them into family trees. I am most interested in the families that intermarried, building trees and connecting branches, merging, sourcing, etc. The team that deals with New England would work.
by Sue Hall G2G6 Pilot (139k points)

Welcome to the Source-a-Thon 2017 Sue ! here's your bib# 358:

And here you can find the teams, just check them out and add a post at the team page for the team you would like to join ;)

Team New York might be  good fit for you.  Many of the New Englanders passed through us and we include several East Coast states besides New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.

Nor'easters Team seems the best fit but their page is set up for clean-a-thon, don't see how to post for Source-a-thon

I requested to join the Forget-me-nots, that way I can work on unsourced profiles in certain family surnames, rather than strictly regional. Surname lists would have unsourced buttons.
Hi Sue,

I'm so sorry we lost you to the Forget-Me-Nots (I assume we did?).

We would have loved to have you as a Nor'Easter.

I hope I'm doing this right... Sign me up! This will be my first source-a-thon, so I'm not really sure yet what my focus will be. I'd like to just give it a try if that's okay.
by Amber Brosius G2G6 Mach 2 (22.3k points)

You did great thanks Amber and here's your bib # 359

And here you can find the teams, just check them out and add a post at the team page telling the team you would like to join ;)

Good luck and have fun this weekend !

You will be very welcome on Team Tennessee Amber.
Hi Amber, this is my first SAT too. I want to invite to join Team Tornadoes https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Team_Tornadoes. We are team that will be working on profiles that are in the Midwest.
Team New York would love to have you. Some of us live on the East Coast, but we source everywhere.
Wow, I feel so popular with all the offers to join teams! I would love to join Team Tornadoes since I have quite a bit of experience with Midwestern records. (Also they were the only team to provide an url so I could find out what they were about!) Thank you to everyone who invited me!
Thank you for choosing us Amber! Welcome to the team!! I'll add your name to the team page right now.

Hi Shantay, 

Welcome and here's your bib# 363:

Hmmm. I don't think any of us have shamelessly begged you to join a team. Well let me be the first. Team New York has mostly East Coast peoples on it, but we work on profiles from anywhere and everywhere. Come on! We don't bite.
Tema Nor'Easters has plenty of spots available as well.

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Nor%27easters_Team
Team Tennessee also has room on it also.
