End Notes:

I do not care what anyone says, This is the very best team around. This team has dealt with homelessness, pneunonia, friends and family dropping in, plans changing, computer issues and more. We all still got in and sourced as best we could. 

You are an amazingly awesome team and I am so blessed to have you all in Legacy Heirs.  I hope to have you all back next year. 


There is a new thing this year:

Hi WikiTreers!

We thought it'd be fun to share selfies of ourselves sourcing over the weekend!

Will you share one of you? If so, post it here as answer!

You can also share it on Facebook, Twitter and/or Instagram. Just  be sure to use #wikitree so we can find it. 

Participants will be eligible to win a Source-a-Thon t-shirt. We'll do a random drawing in the 2pm (ET) Hangouts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. 

Every time you share a selfie, you can be entered to win.  So if you share one selfie in G2G and on Facebook, you'll be entered twice. 

Make sense?

We look forward to seeing all of you! Here is the link if you want to go check out the talk about it.

Lets see some smiles! Remember if not on the g2g post for this, tag with these options: #wikitree #wikitreelove #sourceathon2018

We start Friday, September 28th at 5 am pacific/8 am eastern. We then join in the fun as much as we can and what works for each individual until we hit Monday, October 1st at 5 am pacific/8 eastern. Other places not in the United States will be at their time that corresponds with the U.S. times.

We are a group that works in our own way. If you like to forge ahead at full speed to get something on each profile, that is great. If you like to work on one and make it as loved and beautiful as possible before moving on, feel free and show that profile all the love you can. We do not care if you wish to work in one specific place or all over the world. One hour or most of the weekend is fine as long as you are not putting yourself or someone else in harms way. Just do it your way and lets all have fun.

Respect for eachother is a must, as is supportiveness, we are a wonderful team and amazing people.

I want you all to know I appreciate each of you and am very excited to "work" with you all to source the tree!

Hey all!! 

I, Lisa, am the leader, please let me know if you have a question. I will get you the help you need if I can not. As this is the place for us to all chat, any help for others is welcome also. Feel free to chat away. 

I started the process to see exactly what to do for the recording of profiles. Here is the step by step:

First, find a profile and source it.

Second, Remove the word unsourced and the brackets around it from the profile. Then save as you normally would.

Third, a green box pops up at the top. It has a "button" to click that says challenge tracker. Click that "button". It will bring up another box.

Fourth, at the top it has a spot for your ID. make sure it is in there and correct. Under that there will be a spot to check beside the source-a-thon. Click that spot to show you sourced it and want it to count. Then there is a spot at the bottom to click to submit. Click that!

Last, you have now, after doing the above, counted your point. Find another profile to source and start the process again at the beginning. Repeat this as many times as you are able.

If you need to find your number, as we all have those days, the easiest way is to go to your personal profile page. Click on your ID number at the top and part way down will be a G2G profile link. Click it and when that screen comes up, go to the link for recent activity. It will tell you the most recent posts you commented on. That should tell you which sign up page you are on. Click the chat for it and look. You will have to search through that post until you find it but it gets you to the right one really quick and easy.

'''New Information has come up, as is seen in the link below and on the team's space page. Any profile that has no primary sources and was created before can be counted. If you find any profile that has no main sources and you can fix it, do! It can count as long as you are not making new profiles, just for the purpose of sourcing them. example I saw in a different post: If you find a find a grave or census and it has other family that is not in the tree, you count the ones already in the system after sourcing, then add the new members but the new ones do not count for the total of sourced. The new ones can not be counted as sourced for the thon.'''

For many questions you might have, you can ask here or check at:

Hello Team Legacy Heirs~

I will be on the road tonight and attending a wedding on Friday/Saturday. I will be back, hopefully, Saturday night to kick in with our team till it ends on Monday. Do your best. We seem to have a great line-up here!
Sounds good, take care, be safe and see you when you are able to be with us here.
Hey all,

one of the family issues I was mentioning is that my daughter and I are homeless currently and living in our car. This will not deter me though. We have wifi from the location where we are parked and as my daughter is in College, we are able to sit at the school and use the internet. I will at night and early in the mornings be a slave to my computer battery but will be here as much as possible. I will be charging all day while at the school or at the public library.

Lets all have a good source-a-thon and have fun while beautifying the tree.

Thank you all for being on this team, it looks like we have the best members around.
Way to go team!!! We have gotten a great start. Good job so far. Keep up the great work and have fun!!!

Remember that we work at our pace, if something has come up and you are needing to take longer or wait to start, so be it. Every profile you add to adds to the tree. One profile or 10,000  you are super for helping and I am so thankful for you and your help.
I am back and sourcing!
Welcome back Maggie! Great to have you with us. Hope all went well.
Wooo Hooo, we moved up to 11th, Keep on rolling everyone, I am so incredibly proud to have this team on my side!!!

Great Janet! Welcome.

You are good now until the 28th, look over the pages and see if you have any questions be sure to ask. Every question is important and deserves to be answered.

As it gets closer things will pick up more. In the meantime, if you want to go through yours or other profiles and put the unsourced tag on profiles that need sources, you can. If not, you are welcome to sit back and wait until it gets closer.

Welcome everybody,

I have sourced one profile, then I did a second and hitting "Chalenge tracker" I got to an error page:

Connection: close
Content-Length: 0
Date: Fri, 28 Sep 2018 13:57:35 GMT
Server: SDMS/WebServer/4
This happens to me also when I try to display "Suggestions". Really most of times. It looks like I am out because of technical problem,
answered by Kasia Marchlińska G2G5 (5.7k points)
It has been happening to me also. I sent a message so it should start working soon.

Please do not feel like you have to quit, IF you are still up to trying later, please come back and continue. They usually fix these things as quickly as possible.
I sourced a few more yesterday, got the error every time, so couldn't register them. I'll try again today.

I will send another message and see if it helps. Some of mine are doing that still too. Even if they do not count toward the weekend, every profile sourced makes the tree stronger and better. Please feel free to keep sourcing even if they do not count toward our totals. Everyone benefits when the profiles are healty and stronger.
Hey hun,

Have not heard from alez yet but was given the idea to write down or keep track of the ones you have done that do not go through. We will see about turning in the list and having them credit them for us later.

If it helps you can send me a list every night or morning of the ones you did that day and I will turn them in for the whole team.

Wooo, Hooo way to go with the sourcing everyone!!! The Legacy Heirs now have a tradition of starting lower and rising in the ranks over the weekend. That is what we did last year and again this year, We went down to 16 and are rising. We have come up to 12th when I just checked. Even if we finish there, it is great that everyone is trying and hopefully having fun. The tree is definately benefiting!

Great Job everyone
