Who will win the Source-a-Thon prizes?

3.5k views

Over $3,500 in great prizes donated from around the genealogy community are being given away to participants in the Source-a-Thon. 

Race bib numbers will be drawn at random every three hours in our Google Hangouts. We will post the winning numbers right here, in this G2G message. If your number is drawn, you have until the next Hangout to reply here to claim your prize. 

To claim it, you have to be online and participating. Since most members won't be participating for all 72 hours (!) we expect that many prizes will go unclaimed. But don't worry, all the prizes will be given away and everyone will have plenty of chances to win. If you don't claim your prize your number goes back in the hat. Once you claim a prize, it comes out. 

Winners get to pick their prizes from the list below. Please state which one you would like when you comment to claim your prize!

If you have Source-a-Thon questions, please post them here:

LoL yeah the shirt prize was taken on Friday laugh but i'm willing to sell shirts. laugh

can you put me on a list to donate a prize next time you have a source a thon? Painted portrait of relative from a photo.

That's very cool!

We have a clean-a-thon in the spring if you are in a hurry to donate. laugh

I see it!
That would work. Spring is less busy for me.
Hi ...I heard I won a prize Is it really true that I won something?

What is a choice of photo by Alicia Dunavan?  I suppose that prize will work for me. Thank you so very much for this.
Yes. Andrea, you won! You need to look at the answer below that lists the prizes still available and comment listing the prize you want. Get it done quick before the next hangout!
It's a shame we can't do this more often. It was fun, great experience & much needed. Some of these sources were so easy to find that I realized there were others that didn't know about the research button or if they did, they didn't know how to use it. I'd like to suggest that the research button be included in the welcome education. In addition to helping with the sourcing problem people would be able to find their relatives. I had a lot of  profiles where the owner had made "clues" about their missing relatives that I easily found using the research button. I sent them messages about the new found info. Anyway it's just my 2¢, I'm half asleep & I had a great time. Thanks for putting this together.
I felt like I did a good deed or two and it’s good for karma.
