Scan-A-Thon 2019 G2G Chat Page Legacy Heirs [closed]

+10 votes


The scan-a-thon total broke over a thousand in the first 3 hours!! Everyone is doing so well. This shows ever single addition adds up.

Lots of good links are at:, you can also ask any questions there if I am not around. Check it out. Remember the chats, the last one started at this hour so the next is in about 2 1/2 hours. Join us, it is fun and Mags and Eowyn are losing it already so the rest of the weekend is going to be loads of fun!!

This coming Friday, January 11, at 8 AM eastern (7, 6 and 5 AM pacific, as come across the US) and runs until Monday, January 14, at 8 AM eastern. (Eastern Standard Time is GMT -5.) Everyone starts at the same moment all around the world at their own time that is at that exact moment.

When you are able to start after the above times. You will find the profile you want to add photos, pictures of records, letters, etc... to. (Unlike the source-a-thon, it counts when doing a new profile also, so you can add a new profile and then start the process)

Each item should only be entered 1 time. If there are others the item counts for, after you submit you can go back to that one and edit it. You can then add information and enter the other profile numbers for that piece. However if you want part of that photo for their profile photo, you can crop it to seperate each person and inter that for the person in the photo and in edit, mark you want it to be the main profile one.

When you are on the profile, you click the link that says to click to upload images. (The images only work for open and public files. You can add to any profiles but the count will only be on those two sections.)

You will then do step 1 by clicking on the "choose file"  to locate the file for download. (Make sure to keep copyright laws in mind please)

Click on the image you want to add and then on the open button that is now lit up at the bottom of the pop up box. That will put the photo info in.

Next, under the # 2 there is a box where you put where it came from. (examples: personal photo from reunion, letter written to me by ..., ticket to play ... was in, etc)

The info under section 3 can be filled in now or at a later time. It is up to you if you want to fill it in or not.

Then submit your image and information you have put in to the form.

When you click the submit, it will automatically count your submission. You will not need to click anything else like other thons.

MOST IMPORTANT: have fun and enjoy the experience. Even if you only count one because you were beautifying the tree in other ways, or like some members usually do, over a thousand during the weekend, I am so very thankful for you and appreciate that you have made the tree more beautiful and healthy.

The chats are a great way to keep in the fun! It is a place to talk to the other teams, and see the updates for team totals, and total done in the thon at that point. On top of this, it is where you find out if you or someone on your team wins a prize. Google Calendar - Week of January 6, 2019  is the link. go there and add the calendar to your google calendars.

Should someone miss their name we will post the name on here if they are in our team. You will have until the next chat to go and accept your prize.

This sticker can be found at this link:

Have you checked out the Scan-a-Thon sticker? - WikiTree G2G

If you would like the sticker on your page, go there and follow the instructions to add to your page, or copy this one and go to the link above to learn how to add other things.

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 scan and adorn the tree with history and photos!

I am so very happy to have you all with me. I have always loved photos and the history they provide us with. They go hand in hand with genealogy to show us how those ancestors were and how they lived. It also helps that one of my kiddos is a professional photographer. 

Lets's have fun and show the world who our family is/was!

Selfies!!! For the source-a-thon in October there was a selfie chat set up. So we can see our fellow thoners, they set it up again. Go to and share a photo of you! It can also be shared on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. If you are using one of these 3, make sure to put a #wikitree on the photo post. Joining in with this will enter you for a chance to win a scan-a-thon t-shirt or mug. Drawing for this will be at the 2 pm eastern hang out.

You can track our progress, if you wish, as well as that of the other participants here:

So glad for this awesome team..

Here's a Big ole Howdy Y'all, 

from the 

Southern Super Sweepers!

Thank you!!
Is this the place to go to chat during the scan-a-thon?

I am slowing plugging away. I am at 14 uploads, I think, according to the totals.

I am a little confused on where to go for some of the activities.

Hey hun, 

glad to see you. you are welcome to chat on here but I think you mean the ones where everyone gets to chat and see about who wins prizes. Click this and you will be able to get the schedule. If you click on the one for that time, it will bring the hangout up.

The newist one is probably ending right now so the next one will be in about 2 1/2 hours from now (8 pm pacific/11 pm eastern or your equivilent time)

Oh and I wanted to thank you for your work. We have an amazing team here and I am so glad you are part of it with all the other great scanners!

As for the rest of the stuff the links you need are above, I think. Check out the links above. If I have missed any, you can check out the help page or go to the g2g one that askes if you have any scan-a-thon questions. Everything is there and some grat questions have been answered too.

You sure can hun! I am sorry, it will likely take me a small time to add you, not long but we just found out about a death in the family and I just can not add you right now.

Please be understanding and I will find your sign up and post you to the group as quickly as I can get my mind to clear.

Condolences coming your way. Take your time, Lisa! That time will be stressful enough with all the stuff that has to be organised.
Thank you for the condolences and for waiting! It means alot.

Hi all!

I have a question. I just added a picture to my dad's profile. He is "Private with public biography and tree," because mum is still living. But when the image was uploaded the privacy level was put on red (completely private). Why is that when the profile is on a yellow color?
by Jelena Eckstädt G2G6 Pilot (620k points)
I am not sure hun, I will ask and get the answer to you. If you put his on public, the rest of the profiles on his should say that they are private if you are not on the trusted list.

I am going to ask now, Answer coming as soon as I know.
K, I have not gotten an answer yet but I believe I have the answer. First, what security level was your dad's profile on? For it to count it has to be on open or public (green or clear). I just did one that I knew had someone alive, tagged her and it made hers stay red but left the original person green on the profile.

Try changing his to green (no one can do anything on the profile unless on the trusted list) and the photo should go to green also.
Thanks Lisa
did that end up clearing the problem?
if I put myself on the public profile of dad, the pic is visible, yes.
his profile is public?
there are in the tabs line "public view" and "private view". And when I went on "public view" I saw the pic

So in case I want to read the dissertation of both my granduncle and his first wife, I have to go to the library of the university where they wrote them

(what you can find when you do a ScanAThon)  cool

by Jelena Eckstädt G2G6 Pilot (620k points)
I am not sure about that one. If you click the link at the top that says "do you have questions" you can post that and someone from higher up can help clarify that.
LOL, Lisa, I just commented a find I just did when I created the profile for one of my granduncles and his wife. I knew where they wrote their dissertations, and now I found that I could read them only when I go to "their" university library.

Sometimes mistakes happen. IT is no problem, they just need fixed. One of us accidentally placed the wrong photo. here is the process for clearing it up.

No worries, it happens to the best of us every once in a while. Go into the area for the images. instead of adding, find that photo in that section. When you find it, click on it so that it opens. Can not think if it is one or two clicks on the photo. It can not be deleated, if it works for someone else, attach it to them. Either way you then unattach the wrong profile.

Hey Team!!!

Great starting weekend!! I see we are missing a few of our team. I figure they will be in today. I can not wait. We have started great for the first weekend of the first ever scan-a-thon!! Beside the inevitable tiny hiccups it is awesome so far.

Just keep working as you can and have a great next 24 hours.

Hey all!! Just had a thought. Since this is for photos, how about everyone puts a selfie (new one) on this thread. It would be great to see the faces that go with the name. Not sure they will count but it would still be fun.

Hey all, as a whole wikitreers have made it over the 15000 mark. Can we make the 20,000? just under 3 hours left of our first scan-a-thon. Watch out other teams, Legacy Heirs have started to climb. We are close to another level, will we make it. No matter what happens in the last little bit of time, You are all amazing. I have been so blessed to have had this team for this thon. Way to go to all.
