Hi Vliegende Hollanders - Flying Dutchmen !

hebben jullie zin in weer een gezellig Challenge ?? Je bent van harte welkom bij ons team !

Would you like to join a fun Challenge again ?? You are very welcome to join our team !

Dit jaar houdt WikiTree de allereerste Scan-A-Thon waarin je foto's en documenten upload naar profielen om het uiterlijk en de bronnen voor deze profielen te verbeteren. Er is een limiet van 10 uploads naar elk profiel. (of free space pagina)

Het feest begint vrijdagmiddag 11 januari 14:00 uur en gaat door tot maandag 14 januari 14:00 uur. ( Eastern Standard Time is GMT -5) Er zullen om de paar uur videochats zijn met updates over hoe het evenement gaat en prijstrekkingen.

Er zullen prijstrekkingen zijn tijdens onze periodieke video hangouts. Winnaars kunnen kiezen tussen een Scan-a-Thon t-shirt of mok. 

This year WikiTree will hold its first ever Scan-A-Thon where you scan in photos and documents on profiles to help increase the look and the sources for these profiles. There is a limit of 10 uploads to each profile. (or free space page)

The party starts Friday morning, January 11, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 14, at 8 AM (ET).

Hier is de sticker die je kunt gebruiken voor je eigen profiel om je deelname aan de Scan-a-Thon te laten zien. gebruik: 

{{Scan-a-Thon|team=Team Vliegende Hollanders|year=2019|items= }}

Bij items vul je het aantal door jou geuploade foto's/scans/screenshots etc. tijdens de Scan-a-Thon in.

Here's the sticker you can use to commemorate your participation in the Scan-a-Thons on WikiTree. add: 

{{Scan-a-Thon|team=Team Flying Dutchmen|year=2019|items= }}

At Items you fill in the number of images/scans/ screenshots etc  uploaded by you during the Scan-a-Thon. 

Als je door alle foto's heen bent en je eigen (niet prive profielen !) familie/voorouders voorzien hebt van foto's en aktes...hier kun je eventueel ook nog genoeg profielen vinden die nog een geboorte/doopakte nodig hebben of andere aktes, dus alle (bronnen) en voor deze challenge natuurlijk vooral scans van aktes zijn heel welkom :) 
If you ran out of photo's and have provided your own (not private ones !) relatives/family members/ ancestors with photo's or scans....here you can find lots of profiles that still need a Birth/Baptism Record or any other records, so all (sources) and for this challenge especially the scans of records are very welcome :)

  1. Dutch Roots Project Needs More Records
  2. Dutch Roots Project Needs Birth
  3. Unsourced Netherlands Profiles
    For profiles from all over the world you can just check the:
  4. Unsourced Profiles
  5. And in this G2G you can find some handy links for scanning documents and photo's with phones and tablets

Hi Flying Dutchmen and women ! Hoi Vliegende Hollanders !

Almost time for the Scan-a-Thon and there are some changes.... we won't have to use the tracker like we were used to do during previous Thons.. meaning... you now can just upload a photo /scan/record and just move on to the next, without adding what you did to the tracker, tracking the contributions now goes automatically ! 

Bijna tijd voor de Scan-aThon en er is iets gewijzigd..we hoeven geen tracker te gebruiken zoals we gewend waren tijdens eerdere Thons...betekent...je kunt een foto/scan/akte uploaden en gewoon doorgaan met de volgende, zonder eerst datgene wat je gedaan hebt te vermelden in de tracker, alle bijdragen worden nu automatisch bijgehouden !

Of course we still will have a team progress tracker here it is: 

Natuurlijk hebben we wel nog steeds een team voortgangs tracker, hier is ie:

Scan-a-Thon Team progress tracker   (and jeaay it's working now !) 

And woohoo we are started Go Go Flying Dutchmen and women let's have fun and improve / personalize a whole bunch of profiles or free space pages ! laugh And for some music while you are working on it, here's our team song, just play it really loud if you need to stay awake ! (click image)

The Scan-a-Thon is now on! Use this post to see what's going on and to ask any questions. You can also post on this chat thread. :D

264 image uploaded that's so wonderful especially because this Scan-a-Thon I think is much harder then the Source- or Clean-a-Thon, my granddaughter still running around here and keeping me away from the computer but will make up for it later today and tomorrow wink

Love you all and just keep up the wonderful work and here's Elvis

Hello,

Yes! This has turned into quite a project. What have I discovered? In order to upload a photo, I should really have a profile to connect it to, which means of course that I am spending a lot of time creating a few new profiles for some of my ancestors.

lol

But by doing that, I have managed to connect a branch to another existing branch so that is a good result.

All the best!

Joyce
I've made quite a few new profiles too. Spouses of uncles and aunts I didn't have the dates from and who died too recently to find in de public documents were sourcable due to "bidprentjes", Marriage announcements etc. Same with the official names of people. Most of the time they were mentioned on those documents. Great to do.

Yes this is a really new and totally different Thon compared to the Source -and Clean-a-Thon eeh, but it's great now many new profiles are created and  branches are connected to existing ones and only because of this Thon, thanks for all your wonderful work Joyce ! And so love to watch all the amazing stuff that's uploaded by everyone, really a treasure !

I think the Scan-a-Thon makes us all look for and find things we normally wouldn't even think of or look for, different types of sources like the bidprentjes, newspaper adds or clippings so it's indeed really great to do and thank you for all the wonderful work also Eef !

Congrats on a fine finish and an amazing number of improvements to our global tree, from Team Acadia!

Congratulations team on adding so much to wikitree!

ik wil wel een poging wagen. bij de Flying dutchmen. Geen idee of ik nog veel kan opduikelen
answered by Eef van Hout G2G6 Mach 2 (22.1k points)
Super Eef, het mogen gewoon foto's zijn van je eigen familie / voorouders en als die allemaal voorzien zijn, of als je geen foto's hebt, kun je dus ook geboorte of andere aktes toevoegen aan profielen. Ik ga nog even vragen hoe het precies zit met de aktes..maar neem voor nu maar even aan dat als er geen copyright op zit het wel ok is toch ?
Ik heb me even in de reglementen verdiept. Het telt alleen mee voor de challenge als het om openbare profielen gaat en om zelf ingescande documenten. Dus geen downloads van andere sites. En alleen als jezelf de auteursrechten hebt of wanneer ze vrij van rechten zijn. Maximaal 10 per profiel.
Jaa ik zag het ook, dus openbare profielen, en eigen foto's of zelf ingescande of..gefotografeerde documenten inderdaad ...ik denk dat dit vooral is om te voorkomen dat er problemen met copyright gaan komen..er wordt wel een Scan a Thon G2G gestart binnenkort, waar we even na kunnen vragen of een screenshot (snapshot, etc) van een akte (waar geen copyright op rust) ook ok is ?
It's a pity wo don't have o lot of old photographs in the family. The oldest are from 1910. But I have quite a lot of "bidprentjes"  and lettres  I will scan those too.
Bidprentjes and letters sounds great Eef !

Hoi Eef voor vragen of antwoorden op eventuele vragen kun je nu ook naar de  Scan-a-Thon questions G2G  :)

I would be interested in being a part of the Scan-a-thon.  Could you list items that are a good idea to scan into a profile?  I know pictures of the people would be excellent, but pictures for the most part only go back to the 1850's at best.  

I'd be happy to scan in some baptism, marriage and death records, but I'm not sure how to get a decent picture of them that I can scan from records such as at https://www.geneaknowhow.net/digi/bronnen.html.  Also, is that legal?  

There are also several drawings of church buildings (and a few other buildings as well) sketched in the 1700's that are in Wikimedia Commons.  Since many of these buildings don't exist anymore, and these were among the most important buildings to many of our ancestors, I could see the benefit of scanning some of them into certain WikiTree profiles.  But is that legal?
answered by Bertram Sluys G2G6 Mach 1 (16.9k points)

Great Bertram, I just added the rules to the page, they indeed make things harder, (Eef had a similar question) But what I read also is that they will start a Scan a Thon G2G soon where we can ask questions like yours and Eef's, (I was also wondering about this myself), so what's ok and what isn't. (Is a screenshot ok or not and what if documents are free available everywhere online ?) Reading the photo FAQ the public domain photo's  should not be a problem, but I think it's a bit confusing how it is added to the Scan a Thon page now.. here's what I added to the teampage now.. (And did you sign up here already Bertram ? I added your name to the team at the page already ;)) 

De uitdaging is beperkt tot originele afbeeldingen, dat wil zeggen afbeeldingen die je zelf hebt gescand, gefotografeerd of op een andere manier verkregen. Afbeeldingen gedownload van andere websites mogen niet worden geteld. (Dit natuurlijk vooral om problemen met copyright te voorkomen.) Zie ook onze: Photos FAQ

Maar 10 images per profiel en de enige images die meetellen zijn die images die zijn geupload naar Publieke en Open profielen. Private images tellen niet mee.

Dit betekent wel dat het moeilijker is om deel te nemen als je geen foto's en documenten hebt die gescand moeten worden. Je kunt overwegen om familieleden te vragen, contact op te nemen met een plaatselijke bibliotheek of een historische vereniging, of met uw teamleden te coördineren om andere bronnen te vinden.


The challenge is limited to original images, i.e. images that you have scanned, photographed or otherwise obtained yourself. Images downloaded from other websites should not be counted. (This mainly of course to prevent copyright problems.) See also our: Photos FAQ

Only 10 images per profile and the only images that will count are those uploaded to Public and Open profiles. Private images will not be counted. 

This does mean that it will be harder to participate if you don't have photos and documents that need to be scanned. You might consider asking family members, contacting a local library or historical society, or coordinating with your team members to find other sources.

Bertram I think for the church buildings perhaps it's an idea to use free space pages and upload them there with perhaps some info about them ? If I understand things correct scans or photo's uploaded to WikiTree free space pages are also counting, and this way you can add profiles to the images. So instead of uploading these images to a person profile, you can upload them to the free space page and add the person profiles to the images... (every uploaded image only counts ones of course, so only the upload to the free space page counts)
Bea, I've signed up for it.  I won't have many photos for it, but at least it will be something.  We can talk more about how I can upload the church pictures to a WikiTree free space page - in looking closer at Wiki Media Commons, these are some of many pictures that are public domain and, if I understand correctly, may be used freely as long as the source is listed.  There are some other pictures there that I may also be interested in using.  I just don't know if they can be counted towards the scan-a-thon.  I plan tomorrow to ask permission of the person in charge of the Kistemaker Netwerk to use some of the pictures they have on their site.  I'm not certain they will grant permission, but it's worth a try.  They did grant permission for me to use information on their website on WikiTree, but that's something quite different.
Great Bertram, I could create a free space page for the Scan-a-Thon if you like or perhaps a few where we all can upload photo's or perhaps screenshots of records, scans etc. ?
I think you need to have more than 1 Free Space Page.

Remember there is a limit of 10 uploads per profile or Free Space
Yes I think it would be handy to have a few of them ready when we start eeh ?
 

For all questions you can go to the Scan-a-Thon questions G2G now, I already added a question for us about the public domain images and the primary record scans, but if you have other things you are wondering about just go ahead and add them wink

tried to load some .tiff files. Doensn't work. so now I've copied them into jpeg and have uploaded them. It's quite a bit of work when you still have to scan everything...

En kwam er trouwens achter dat de uploads meetellen van "open" en "public" profielen.

Discovered that uploads of images to Open en Public profiles count for the score.
answered ago by Eef van Hout G2G6 Mach 2 (22.1k points)
I 've done all the photographs and bidprentjes I could find, so I stop for today. If I'm lucky Ill find some more in de photoalbums of my father. But they can wait till tomorrow

Super(s) Eef every upload is one and and making them more personal or look so much nicer, or if it's a scan of a record that's uploaded we never have to worry about links that get lost or are no longer working eeh. You can also upload images or photo's to a free space page if for example you have photo's but don't know who the people in the photo are (sometimes members have photo's and they know the people in it must be family but they don't know who they are exactly) those you can upload to an (that page also has to be open or public !) free space page and they also will count. 

The team is doing really great 229 uploads already, and did you check the hangouts already ? They always are a lot of fun and you can meet and chat a little with members from other teams there as well :D

Time for me to get some work done and sure hope it works better then yesterday wink

I'very been active on the chats already.. My son is home for a night so I stop for tonight. Tomorrow will be a new day. Discovered some more things I can scan

Of all weekends it's like this weekend everyone decided to come visit, sleep or eat at our place....cool But well..really lucky to have such an amazing team, here's the score and the top five of our team !

Together we all have uploaded/added 321 scans and our top five uploaders or scanners are: (drumroll and applause for everyone !) 

  1. Ted Vandervis with 67 uploads
  2. Bertram P. Sluys with 57 uploads
  3. Roelof Scholtens with 44 uploads
  4. Eef van Hout with 40 uploads
  5. Sharon A. Jungers with 32 uploads

So proud of you all and now really off to try and upload a few more ! And all I managed to do so far today was uploading a Scan-a-Thon 'selfie' cheeky

Wow I am impressed! At this moment there are 317 scans uploaded by Team Flying Dutchmen! That is great!! Especially as there were only private scans allowed

I added tonight about - maybe 15 - of parents and greatparents and some oldaunts and olduncles.

Jemig jongens! Ik ben onder de indruk! 317 scans toegevoegd door ons Team Flying Dutchmen. Dat is ongelovelijk! Vooral omdat het ons moeilijk gemaakt werd doordat alleen prive documenten toegestaan zijn.

Ik heb vanavond - ongeveer 15 scans toegevoegd - van ouders, grootouders en oudtantes en ooms.

We can be proud again at our team!  

We kunnen weer trots zijn op ons groepie!

Woohoo girl so happy to see you made it :D And Tanya girl you have been very busy these passed few hours eeh, you now are Team Flying Dutchmen-Vliegende Hollander number 1 uploader with 72 uploads amazing, the current number of uploads of our team is 377 ! 

Still a bit of time left so of now to try and make it 400 :P (and one more can't stop the feeling ...let's dance ! click image)

Congratulations!!

Tanya nr.1 at the Dutch_Roots with 72 uploaded scans!

Nr.2 at the Dutch_Roots: Dr Ted VandeVis with 67 uploaded scans

And Bertram nr.3 at the Dutch_Roots with 57 uploads!!

Wonderful achievements!!

And the total score is 478 for the Flying Dutchmen -Vliegende Hollanders, and 15,845 scans were uploaded this weekend to WikiTree ! 

It was a whole new Thon and this thon is a new approach or totally different one because now sometimes we had images, scans or photo's and had to look if there were profiles for the people in it already and if not we had to create some for them and connect them to the tree like Joyce mentioned. 

But now we know how it works so we can save em all up for next year eeh and be more prepared wink

It was a great weekend and thank you all for joning the team and working so hard hope to see you again at the Clean-a-Thon !

Nor'Easters die langskomen om iedereen te feliciteren die heeft deelgenomen aan de SCAT. Veel foto's, documenten, gravesites, enz. Zijn aan profielen toegevoegd waardoor ze veel informatief om te bekijken zijn.

answered ago by Steven Tibbetts G2G6 Pilot (172k points)
Thank you Steven! Yes it was big fun and all participants improved so many pages and profiles! Just W O N D E R F U L!!

It was much more fun as I thought it would be!

I added a few very serious new info to profiles of my family. 

Had only short time and was looking for three old photographs/paintings of ancestors last night and came across the embroidery/sampler of my hubs grandmother she made as a child. laugh

So happy it is now saved for ever! 

Wauw that's really a treasure Astrid it remembers me of the days in school when I was about the same age and we also had to learn to embroider and had to make a piece of embroidery with all different kinds of  stitches..laugh

Thank you Bea. The worst thing I ever had to do was to hand-knit a little porc with knit cotton (without any stretch!). Ahahaha it was my first knitting and I always dropped all the stiches and it looked awful! laugh

It was fun participating! And following what others uploaded. I' will be going on with uploading primary documents to each new profile and adding them to existing profiles. The use of a signature as primary when I don't have a photo is something I will continue also.

I don't know If I will have a lot to add in the next scan-a-thon. All the known family pictures are now uploaded. But I will keep my eyes and ears open for new material so maybe......  you never know.

Next time I will be better prepared:

- making scan in advance so I only have to upload them.

- collecting the material in one place and so being more organized.

Hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as I did! And everyone who didn't participate: Hope you will next year.
