It is a 1pm start GMT time, a couple of our team are already building up some numbers so we are off to a start

Have fun everyone
Just nipping out.  Think I'm going to need three weeks not just three days!  Hope another is planned soon :+)
Possibly next year if this one goes well it may be added tot he annual events
I uploaded my first image and it din't come up with screen with Green Button for tracking.  Oh well, the mausoleum where my father's crypt is now is on his profile.  Now to try the crypt photo
Okay guys

Looks like I  have uploaded 30 odd photos to profiles with connections to privacy locked profiles and that blocked them from counting, my apologies.

Thank you for the work done today and the brilliant work of Lesley that has moved us up in the field of teams. Guess she has a treasure trove of ancestral materials

See you all tomorrow
Do you think "Great Lakes" might run out of scans/images to upload ... not much difference  :-)

Nothing planned today but don't think I'll get as many on tomorrow (... although enough to go on for days!!! ... I'll just save them for our next time (... hopefuly in the not too distant future???) ... for our next ScanAThon challenge)

Maybe another hour-ish before I log off today ... and still time tomorrow  ;-)

I'm not going to run out!!!  (... time maybe ... not scans!)
Hi Lesley

Nope maybe they will all go to bed soon, but I guess so will we.

Only three ahead at the moment and your input has be just breathtaking for the rest of us to watch as your number went up and up. Thank you
Think someone else just joined in from their team

Well Night everyone see you all tomorrow

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

I have a few images to upload for people that are not related to me and do not have profiles yet on WikiTree. Are these images OK to upload once I've created their profile? I have their names and some details about each person, so will be able to write a short bio with each image.
answered by Carol Keeling G2G6 Mach 3 (31.3k points)
Hi Carol,

Yes those images are fine, sounds good to me.

Thanks for joining us for this event

Hi Team

Hope you are all geared up and ready to go for tomorrow it all begins

Happy scanning and uploading

Basic rules No unlisted profile / only 10 per profile will be counted

Thank you all for being on our small but mighty team
answered by Janet Wild G2G6 Mach 3 (39.8k points)
I did some finding photos to load.  I have a lot of tomb stones and have those ready to go.  So many of them are from the 1800's and 1900s that are in the 18th and 19th centuries.  

Like Carol, I may have to create profiles to add them.. I hate to make floating profiles that are in the not-connected category

My backpack fell out of the car because the door wasn't closed.  Screen was broken so I am working my projector displaying of the wall.  Hope no one minds be being on the team be I am not in England.  Janet asked me so here I am..  one of my g;-gf's', Joseph John Bond was from Liverpool. For some reason he changed is name to Dodd.  So I am a third generation English immigrant.  I am second generation Scottish. (My maternal GM).

See all tomorrow

Goodness that will be an interesting way to work, thanks for sticking with us

Hi Folks

Guess my tree is to young for me to add profiles that count.

Looking for information and documents online for the older open profiles

Please od let us all know how you are feeling with what you have achieved

I've now completed uploading everything that I have for my family, and have reached 94 images. Those that I now have left are for non family members that do not have profiles yet, which will be very slow going as they all need to be researched. My aim to start with was 100 uploads, so I've only 6 to go.

Keep going everyone, we are doing really well.
answered ago by Carol Keeling G2G6 Mach 3 (31.3k points)

Thanks Carol

Fab load of contributions thank you for sharing these wonderful photographs.

Sure you will reach your target today as you are now at 95smileyyes

Hi Everyone

Lets have some more fun today

Some of the team are busy looking for more Photos's and documents that are old enough to use but hopefully will be adding more soon

Joe will be joining us later and through to Monday, think he is travelling back this morning from Germany

Okay back to the search for more stuff to scan and load up, catch up with you all later
answered ago by Janet Wild G2G6 Mach 3 (39.8k points)
We just moved up a place to sixth now chasing the Windsor Warriors.  This adding profiles to add potographs to take time up. I know Carol is creating new profiles as well any one else having to do this?

Joe has joined in the fun, welcome Joe
Hello everyone, I've been cropping and getting the file sizes down - now to upload a few. I found a photo of Lord Odo Russell in an old album but I have absolutely no idea why he is in there....  It is uploaded now since there was an existing wikitree profile for him. ( )

The rest will be family members near and distant.

Signing out for the night of course I found the photographs files I have been looking for all week..... so will be busy tomorrow

Scan a Thon close 8am ET so check your time differences

We are back up in 6th place from 9th Great effort everybody, great to see the numbers going up, but it close. I hope you all enjoyed your day smileyyes

Nor'Easters stopping by to congratulate all those that participated in the SCAT. Many photos, documents, gravesites, etc have been added to profiles making them much more informative to view.
