Join our Scan-a-ThonIn January we will have our first annual 72-hour scanning marathon, to parallel our fun and successful annual Source-a-Thons and Spring Clean-a-Thons.

Our mission: to scan and share all those old family photos and other items we've been meaning to get to!

The party starts Friday morning, January 11, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 14, at 8 AM (ET). (Eastern Standard Time is GMT -5.) We're encouraging genealogists from all over the world to participate at the same time.

Will you join us?

To register, just click the ANSWER button and say "Sign me up!" or whatever and include a few words about your location or genealogical interests.  

If you're already part of a team from a previous challenge and want to stay on it, mention that. Not all teams are available for the Scan-a-Thon so you may not end up on the same one. The current teams are listed here. More may be added.

Please be sure to read the rules of participation. Thanks!

I am trying to join not sure if I have or not
I'd like to join too
Unfortunately the cutoff was on Wednesday, but don't let that stop you from scanning and uploading images,
Can I play? Or am I way too late to join the fun?

I have southwest missouri area family pictures
sign me up... I have been trying since the day I got this message. It was before it was to late but I cannot tell if I am signed up or not... Help please.
Deadline was last Wednesday and the event is winding down.
That stinks. Oh well. Guess I'll wait until the next event to load pictures and articles.
Is it to late to sign up for the scan-a-thon.  If it is not I would love to.  Thank you

Sign me up, it's perfect timing I just got a bunch of old pictures from my grandmother of the mid 1940's in Michigan!
by Scott Fitch G2G Crew (930 points)
We would love you over at Team Tornadoes Scott. We are a Midwest team so you would fit right in with those Michigan photos. Plus we are a pretty fun bunch and have always enjoyed ourselves during these thons.

Team Tennessee Volunteers would like to invite you to their team. Here our Space Page  https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Team_Tennessee_Volunteers_2019_Scan_-_A_-_Thon

Legacy Heirs will be participating and would love to have you with us. 

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 would like to sign up for the Scan-a-thon.  If I don't I will never find time to upload these photos. If Team Tornadoes is participating I would like to be on that team if not Team Roses would be my second choice.

We would love to have you on Team Tornadoes again Deena! Abby Glann and I are the captains this time round. Our page is here and our G2G here. I can’t wait to work with you again.

ooh...Sign me up! I VOW to scan in a bunch of great photos, some of the death certificates and marriage licenses I have searched out, and even a will or two. I guess my photos/info are from such diverse areas, I'll just go it alone this time. I don't really seem to "fit" on any one particular team. (That's what a girl with Dixie roots gets for marrying a New Englander...)
