What is expected of us on the Source-a-thon? Thanks.
During this three day event, we edit and add sources to existing profiles that are currently unsourced. It's my favorite even that Wikitree does!

I haven't yet registered for the Source-a-Thon, but I will and I'd love to join your team! I'm from St. Louis, MO, so most of the work I've done on WikiTree has involved people from Missouri and Illinois.

Awesome! Happy to have you on the team. Make sure to state you're on Team Missouri when you sign up or everyone and his brother will be trying to recruit you. LOL

I am working on a profile that the deeper I get into the more problems I am finding with it.  They have made the husbands have the maiden names of the wives and things do not match up when cross-referencing to Family Search where I started.  The original couple and wife's parents matched.  Any suggestions to not take all night to correct this one profile?  I have already been on it for over an hour just adding birth/death dates for the children.

Personally, I'd walk away from it and let the PMs straighten the mess out. We're here to source not fix messes. I've seen my fair share too. If it's simple, I fix it. Otherwise I move on.

Might want to post this in the team chat and see if you get any different advice.
