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.'''

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!!!

Family Search is going down at 2am for about 30 minutes or so they say - might have to take a break!

Great job team! If there is only one profile that was improved on WikiTree because of this challenge, that is success!!

Great Job!

Yay! For everyone who kept plugging along. I got a late start but I was so happy to see everyone sourcing away. It looks like we ended at 10th. If I did not go to work this morning, I would have kept on. Thanks everyone.
