Hi Team Canadian Cleanup Crew!

This will be where you can communicate with each other throughout the 2019 Clean-a-Thon.  Cheer each other one, post any questions you have, etc. 

It would be great if everyone would post an answer and maybe introduce yourselves a bit and share what you're intending to work on.

I have signed up for the Nor'easter crew, but maybe that is the wrong one?
answered by Kathryn Penner G2G1 (1.6k points)
Kathryn the Nor'easter's do Canadian Maritimes and East Coast.

What area are you planning on working on?
I can do PEI and NB.
This is my first clean-up. Does it start on 26th or can I start on the spreadsheet profiles now?

From the G2G post:

The cleaning will start on Friday, April 26, at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday, April 29, at 8 AM (EDT).

You can absolutely work on anything you like, but tracking starts on the 26th.

Are you going to switch teams or stay with the Nor'Easters?? laugh

I’d like to sign up but am a WikiTree newbie still, at least in experience.

I’ve been going thru my 5200 person GEDCOM and matching up with existing profiles for months but am finally almost done. Not sure what to do when I’ve got thru the last suggested match so if anyone has any help I’d appreciate it. Also have lots of new folk I’m adding and lots of adopted profiles to fix up.

I’m going to probably have to “clean up” all those imports so will probably do those mostly which are Quebec and Montreal and Trois Rivieres mostly with some Acadian and many pioneers I’ll probably ruin when import is done.

Where do I go to study up on how to do the clean-up work for the clean-a-thon and the imports?

Hi Marianne!

Great to have you on board!

Can you please post an answer (not comment) on the Clean-A-Thon G2G post. Eowyn will give you a badge and you will be officially registered!

For the CAT, go to the Team Canada Space Page and scroll down to Error Report/By Region. You can click on Quebec and that will take you to the errors for that province. Have a look around! 

Let me know what questions you have! Feel free to message me directly smiley
