Registration is now open for our 2019 Connect-a-Thon

This is our first annual Connect-a-Thon. Our goal is to decrease the number of profiles that are not connected to our big tree by adding relatives to existing profiles.

The event will start on Friday, July 12, at 8 AM (EDT) and run until Monday, July 15, at 8 AM (EDT).

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 and/or genealogical interests. This will help us assign you to a team. If you already know what team you'd like to be on, say that. The current teams are listed here. There are a few new ones and more may be added.

Deborah, LOL, sounds like something I've done! At least you're getting some practice in! Now enjoy that coffee!
Also my first connnect-a-thon. i am new to the site and still learning navigation. Excited to be part of the team.
Thank You!!!!!! Genealogy for Dummies... I finally get it.
Don't feel bad Deborah. I thought the Clean-A-Thon started a week or two early. I made the same mistake. Figured I was a little early in the day (not by weeks) getting on it :)
I've been able to connect lots of profiles while cleaning up merges.   Sometimes you can volunteer to be the profile manager AND you can be a "sourcerer at the same time, so you can be helpful in 3 or 4 different ways by looking for connections- I found a new family branch (Hendrick) going back to the 1600s this weekend in the process!
I had a question from my team. I think I know but want to be sure before I go back and tell them. Does it have to be connected to an existing profile? If you find a group that is not in yet, can you add them anyway for it to count or only to existing profiles?
At least one profile has to be on WT already.  Take a look at Mindy's fabulous tutorial page:

Thank you Ros
Added the link to the info tab although it duplicated most of the sourcing tutorial.
