Excited to be doing my first Thon!

Hi Elizabeth

Have you registered for the event? I haven't found on the registered link yet.

I have added you to our table of participants on the team page Sandringham Strollers if you could add the county or what group you would work on to the table

Thanks for joining us

Janet & Gillian

Thanks Janet,

I thought I had registered by commenting on the registration post - it was six days ago so it might have disappeared a long way down! Is there something else I should have done?

Hello Sandringham Strollers Wikikin! I am looking forward to sourcing with all of you. A special greeting to our new first-timers. I know what that's like as my first thon was earlier this year--the Clean-a-thon. I had just joined the England Group this May, then the Sandringham Strollers and began my Orphan Trail. This is my third thon (thounds like I have my thumb in my mouth) The Strollers are absolutely warm, supportive and wonderful. And a special greeting to all who are having a first thonaversary! Thank you, Janet, for herding all of us on the Strollers Chat! Cheers!
All the best, Strollers, from your fellow anglophiles, the Warriors! :-)
I will do my best, mates! I have to leave for Philadelphia Sunday afternoon and I have my first genetic genealogy class Saturday morning. I will be up bright and early tomorrow to source! Si se puede! Yes we can!

This will also be my first anniversary! I couldn't take part in the last two Thons as I've been too busy getting ready to move house. Moving day is now almost here (Friday 6th September!) and I reckon I will be ready to take a break from unpacking by the time the Source-a-Thon starts! Looking forward to working with the Strollers again. xx

Hi Mandy

You will be working this area with Paul Masini, I would encourage you to drop him a line to see how you can work together or pick and area / surname each

Remember other teams participating may cross over as well

Try to add the county needs categories to a profile of you have not add the main three birth, marriage and death. All basic needs categories are on our Team page


PS remember there is an area in the States call Isle of Wight hopeful the changes requested have cleared these off the England unsourced list.
Thanks for working so hard on Hampshire between us we managed to source quite a few you did some before I got to them.

So good to have you on the county team next thon we need to get coordinated.
Thanks Hilary. I managed to run out of twentieth century ones on my list yesterday! Still plenty more to do though. Trouble is, I keep getting sidetracked. Sometimes I just can’t help myself following the ancestors back a bit . Great working with you. X

That’s great. Has everyone ( who needs one ) had a Discord invitation? I know Jackie has just joined.
Not sure on my list to do a check unless Gillian gets there before me.

I sent Jackie one yesterday so good to know she joined

Ok, guys, tomorrow is THE BIG DAY!!!!! Are you ready???? I am soooo excited I can't wait!!! My wife already knows this is a "lost" weekend for her. laugh I posted a letter-size announcement on the fridge a month ago.

by Pip Sheppard G2G Astronaut (1.7m points)

Wise Guy, forewarned=no complaints, have you sweetened her with some flowers and chocolates?smiley

I sent you a discord invite as I cannot see you on there, it is up to you if you join this site.

Office is almost organised,Jax has her's all lined up already like you she is raring to go.

Already on discord for other things, so I accepted the invite for Sandringham.

An organized office? What be that?
I am hopeful that I can keep the cats away from everything.  I may need an extra table just for them.  By the way discord is fab
