+53 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!

I'll be there. I'll be focusing on the family photos I have and a couple of documents I have. All family from Michigan (my tree isn't connected to many other trees yet. I'll be signing up for sourceathon, too. :) )
I'll be participating. I have barely started adding my family and it seems most of them so far do not connect to many other trees. Should be fun! I'll be focusing on my family who lived in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania. and the Netherlands (further back in the States if I have time).
If the answer to Lisas question is a yes, then I can join in xxx
Colleen, you need to click <answer> to Eowyn's question above. Welcome to WikiTree.  Glad you are joining in.
Karen -- I don't think the answer to Lisa Murphy's question is yes.  You can still join in the fun if you can scan pictures, letters or even things you own that relate to a profile on WikiTree.  It doesn't count to scan a copy of a death certificate or marriage license that you don't actually own.
are there instructions on how to create a free space somewhere on WT?

Thank you

The Flying Dutchmen are in. So am I!

Please register me WT leaders. Looking forward.

The answer button is gone here......... frown

Team Flying Dutch (Wo-)Men likes to join the Thon. And looking for members at our team.

But I do not have an "answer" choice here.


Hi Astrid. The "answer" button is gone because the question (which is over a year old) has been closed. As it says near the top, "Registration is now closed."
