is a new challenge! The first Scan-A-Thon weekend starts Friday, January 11, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 14, at 8 AM (ET). We'll beautify profiles by adding scanned photos, records, and documents to them. Here is where you can find information about it: Help:Scan-a-Thon.

You can work on ANY profiles, not just Acadians!

2019 SC-A-T Results

Unofficial results: Team Acadia finished 15th out of 24 teams, with a total of 446 out of 15,845 uploads! Joyce and Giselle were the team stars, with 193 and 192 uploads, respectively!


The annual Source-A-Thon was established with the goal of clearing out the Unsourced Profiles category. The 2018 event will begin at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Friday, September 28th, and ends at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Monday, October 1st. It runs world-wide for 72 hours straight! There will be video chats every 4 hours throughout the Thon, during which random drawings will be made for door prizes. It's a lot of fun!


  • A total of 438 people sourced 72,713 profiles in this year's S-A-T. Compared to last year's total of 53,245, that's an increase of 37%, with pretty close to the same number of people participating! For more information about overall results, see the 2018 Source-A-Thon Wrap-Up.
  • Team Acadia sourced 1,138 profiles with 10 people participating. That's an increase of 36% over the 839 profiles we completed last year, and with slightly fewer people!
  • Team Acadia came in 21st of 32 teams, which ranks us in the 66th percentile based on team ranking of total profiles sourced. Not bad for a small team!
  • We came in 14th of 32 teams when you look at each team's average number of profiles sourced. Our average was 114 profiles per member participating, beating out 7 of the higher-ranked teams that were larger but not as productive on average!
  • We started out with 706 unsourced profiles in the Acadians Project. That number is now down to 496, a 30% reduction in one weekend!

Check out our Team Acadia G2G chat page to introduce yourself, and check on status updates and other team news! This is where we can get answers to our questions, get acquainted with one another, discuss our team's progress and cheer each other on!


Our team's primary goal is to add sources to those Acadian profiles that are currently unsourced. Note that you aren't limited to just Acadians Project profiles! You can also work on:

  1. Post-deportation profiles of Acadians and their descendants. Many Acadians remained in Acadia after the deportations, or made their way back to the Canadian Maritimes later. Many more ended were scattered to other parts of the globe. See below for some of the major locations involved.
  2. Profiles in other unsourced categories. Lists of unsourced profiles in other locations are given below.
  3. Any unsourced profile, even if they are NOT in the unsourced category! There are tens of thousands of these profiles that need attention. They are harder to get to, but you can usually find a few if you check other family members linked to an unsourced profile.

Following are convenient tables for locating unsourced profiles that are relevant to Team Acadia's focus on Acadian ancestors.


The Acadians unsourced list is alphabetized, but a breakdown by century is not available as it is for lists based on location. It includes Acadians that are managed by the Acadians Project as well as others identified as Acadians who aren't managed by the project, and includes some of the post-deportation descendants of Acadians.

The lists of unsourced profiles shown below are defined by location and broken down by century. They include descendants of Acadians, as well as other people who lived in those areas, both before and after the deportations.

Other Unsourced Lists

Start here to browse through all Unsourced Profile lists.


See Team Acadia's spreadsheet tab!

The Data Doctors have used this spreadsheet for some time, to help them organize work when doctoring profiles. They have shared their spreadsheet with Source-A-Thon teams, and a tab has been set up especially for Team Acadia! Use of it is optional, but it can be a helpful tool to keep team members from bumping into each other while working through the Unsourced Profiles lists.

The spreadsheet includes an optional Chat feature, shared by everybody on every tab [not just our team]. There are handy links to Unsourced Profiles by location, S-A-T scores, chat, video chat updates, etc. There is also a place where you can enter what you're currently working on, so that others know to avoid those profiles.

Please check it out! If you have questions about how Team Acadia can use this tool, please post your question on our team's G2G chat page!


Review the following pages for additional information on sources relevant to the Acadians.


... ... ... participated with Équipe Acadie - Team Acadia during the 2018 Source-a-Thon, adding sources to 00 previously unsourced profiles.

As a participant in the Source-a-thon, you can insert the following text into the biography of your personal profile page:

{{Source-a-Thon|team=Équipe Acadie - Team Acadia|year=2018|sources=00}}

This will include the sticker on your profile. Your name will automatically appear, but you need to enter the total number of profiles you sourced when the challenge is over.
