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:
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.
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!
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.'''
