REGISTRATION IS CLOSED!

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.

Melissa and Lee y'all need to go bak to thetop and ANSWER not comment.You can only get registered by Answering.

The Southern Super Sweepers Team is full, thank you for requesting SS Sweepers. Request earlier for the next Thon, C-a-T spring 2019.

Equipe_Acadie_-_Team_Acadia.jpg  It's not too late to sign up! Team Acadia has plenty of room, and every little bit counts! You don't have to commit to the entire weekend--every unsourced profile that gains a source is a win in our book! Please scroll all the way up to the question at the top of the thread and click on Answer (not Comment) to join any team you like!

Excellent guide, Joyce!
TODAY - Wednesday 26 Sept - Eastern time - is the LAST day for registrations.

The time now is 9 AM Eastern time on that date.

Which means you now have 15 hours left to register if you have not done so already.
This says it's close to be apart of the sourceathon...is that correct?
I'd like to participate, I am from Melbourne Australia.
If the registration thread is closed then yes it is too late to be officially registered.

You can still participate, source profiles, and add them to the tracker . You can also watch the Video hangouts, but you are not eligible to win prizes in the Video hangout draws.
I would like to sign up again.
Hmmm.  I think maybe my sign up did not go through and then I might have commented rather than answered.  Perhaps I have missed it for this year?
One last attempt.  I think the issue was every time I tried to answer in order to register, I was logged out somehow..
Sorry Tiana, but registrations have now closed.

I'd love to do the Source-a-Thon again this year! I had been in the Anywherers before, but I believe they have disbanded, so I may need a new team.

Team Roses would love to have you. We are a general team.

We do not work in any one specific place or at any set pace. You are free to beautify the tree and strengthen it at your own pace and in any place that suits you. Every profile sourced helps the tree, no matter if it is some sources added to verify the profile or a longer approach of studying and loving each profile.

I'd love to join!  But I will not be available the entire weekend.  It looks like the Forget-Me-Nots team has disbanded, so I'd like to join Team Mid-Atlantic US since I spend so much time sourcing Pennsylvania profiles.

answered by Star Kline G2G6 Pilot (496k points)
MidAtlantic would love to have you join us.  I still haven't mastered how to reprint the URLs on G2G but hang in and Lucy will be by with them or go
to the top of the page and click on one of them for our team.   Glad you
chose to join us.

Thanks, Star! You're #394.

Hi Sharon,

You'll need to post your own answer, rather than commenting on this answer, to be properly registered for the Source-a-Thon.  Once you've done this, I'll add you as a member of the Mighty Maple Leaves team.
OK, sounds good! I would like to join the Mighty Maple Leaves team.
That was me adding this comment. I didn't know I wasn't logged in at the time.

I'm looking forward to participating in the next Source-a-Thon! The most logical team for me is Team Mid-Atlantic US. Most of my research has been in Pennsylvania, so I'm most familiar with those records.

it again with another prospective teammate or G2G question.  Thanks

Hi, I would like to participate in the 2018 Source-a-thon. If there is room, please put me on the New England team.
answered by

First, you are Alarie-89 which is nice to know since you weren't signed in. ;) Second, there is no "official" New England team although Nor'Easters covers New England and the Canadian Maritimes.

Let me know if you want to join us.

Oops. Sorry about that. Yes, I would like to join the Nor'Easters. (I knew I should've written it down!)

Thanks.

Thanks, Ruth! You're #406.
