This registration thread is full. Please post in the current one to register.

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.

We got a Nor'Easter coming in so get ready to storm those unsourced profiles. If you have the moxie, spreadsheets, walk-thrus, nets, and harpoons, we got it all. Climb aboard. We concentrate on but are not limited to the New England and Canadian Maritimes area. Just say you wanna go Nor'Easterwink

Sourcing Primer Tutorial will help you get ready.

Consider joining the Mid-Atlantic Team for this third annual Source-A-Thon.  We are a non-competitive team, stressing quality over quantity.  First timers are very welcome and will receive all the assistance they require.  Take a look at our Team Free Space and our G2G Chat Page:

I would love to join the source-a-thon. I’d say Great Lakes region or Nor’Easter would be the way to go for me. My current research has my family heading back that way.
by Grace Ogden G2G Crew (620 points)

The Great Lakes Region would be glad to have you. 

This is a link to the Great Lakes Region team chat thread should you decide to join us.

Which team?
I think you may like the Southern Sweepers, but you are more than welcome to join the Mid-Atlantic team!  We are working on this area and any other that piques your interest or expertise.

Thanks Lucy, I will reach out to Catherine and see if the Southern Super Sweepers are a good match for her.

Which team would you like?
Hello Craig. I've looked at a few of the profiles you've been working since you don't have visible where you and your parents are from and I notice a Pennsylvania theme. This I believe is covered by Mid-Atlantic team. If you feel like working a little further North, the Nor'Easters covers New England and Canadian Maritimes. Feel free to let us know your preference.
I will join the Nor'Easters.

There are three teams for this country.

Team GB-Gen, which covers England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Eire

These two cover England only:

Sandringham Strollers

Windsor Warriors

Hi hun,

Just curious if you have chosen a team yet? We would like to make sure you are on the team roster for the correct one.
Hi Colin,

I'd recommend Team GB-Gen which Ros leads if you want to work on records across the whole of the UK. They're a great team.

Thank you, Lisa! I would love to help the Legacy Heirs  smiley

Wonderful!! Welcome, we are so glad to have you part of our team. As soon as you get  your number, go to one of the pages and let me know. I will put you in the member list.
According to the Source-A-Thon instructions, a team leader has to give me a badge and a number . . . is this correct? I'm not sure what to do . . .
no worries,

The ladies who are the head of the source-a-thon will give everyone number badges. We just wait until they are able to give them to us.

Then when you are given yours, click one of the links I gave you in the invite and let me know you got it. I will then put your name in the list of members on the team pages.

Thanks, Christine! You're #337.
