September 28 - October 1 — the start of Family History Month — is our third annual "Source-a-Thon".

This three-day event is for a good cause (sourced genealogy!) and there will be over $3,000 in door prizes donated from around the genealogy community. It will be lots of fun.

The event will go from Friday, September 28 at 8 AM (ET) to Monday, October 1, 8 AM (ET).  Note: We've changed the start/end time from last year.

So as not to lose sight of those we add a single source too during this can we add the needs categories for those records we don't find.
Is there a post for questions relating to the Source-a-Thon yet? I just get hits from 2017 when I search.

Sure, sign me up. No team preference; right now I'm working mainly with Frederick, Maryland profiles, but I'm also interested in Texas, and I'm happy to source any profile of a person who's likely to be found on the US census between 1850 and 1940!

ETA: I've joined the Mid-Atlantic Team.

Sharon Casteel, we would love to have you working on Texas in the Southern Super Sweepers. Just post again and ask to be placed on the Southern Super Sweepers.  :)  We work hard, play harder and always have fun!
Team Tennessee Volunteers would like you to work with them who are fun and marvelous
They don't have to post again, they can edit this first one. And they can pick Nor'Easters if they want a challenge. ;)

Thank you Sharon! You're #71.

We have room on the Nor'Easters if you like.
Southern Super Sweepers has room available, if you want to have some fun!
Team Tennessee Volunteers is a wonderful and fun team to work with.

Hi, Susan! I'll put my bid in to get you onto Team Tornadoes! We're going to blow everyone away. ha ha ha ha ha!! ;-)

Team Nor'Easters sounds good - New England is where most of my family is from.  This team should be a good fit for me if you still have room.  Thanks!!!
