Have you registered for our 2020 Scan-a-Thon yet?

+29 votes

imageIn January we will have our second annual 72-hour scanning marathon, to parallel our fun and successful annual Source-a-ThonClean-a-Thon, and Connect-a-Thon.

Our mission: to scan and share all those old family photos and other items we've been meaning to get to!

The party starts Friday morning, January 10, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 13, at 8 AM (ET). (Eastern Standard Time is GMT -5.) We're encouraging genealogists from all over the world to participate at the same time.

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 or genealogical interests.  This will enable us to match you with a team.

If you're already part of a team from a previous challenge and want to stay on it, mention that. Not all teams are available for the Scan-a-Thon so you may not end up on the same one. The current teams are listed here. More may be added.

Please be sure to read the rules of participation. Thanks!

Does people you scan stuff for do they need not to be living or can they living and be counted.
I hope it will be like last January Scan - A - Thon

Linda, here are the rules:

Only images that are uploaded to public profiles are counted. If you have a photo of a living person that you and anyone else in the photo don't mind being public, you can upload it to a public free-space profile and it will be counted.

What I mean is tracking will hopeful be automatic like it was last year.

Team Nor'Easters in da house!!!

Sign me up.  I am already listed on the Mid Atlantic Team, so I'd like to stay there.  I'll help you all, not really  a competitor, but a helper.  I probably have a lot of stuff I can enter.  Let's have some fun again.

I'll be happy to captain the Kiwi Crew again.

I personally do not have much in the way of new photos or documents to upload. I do have a few though.
