The Gulf Coast Hurricanes

The core focus of the Gulf Coast Hurricanes challenge team is on profiles associated with Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, but you are not restricted to that and may work on any profiles you wish.


Our mission for this challenge is to add new profiles for relatives of existing profiles on WikiTree, in order to help people more easily connect to their families.

About the Connect-a-Thon

What I really love about this challenge is it's a chance to dedicate time to improving our own watch list of profiles. It benefits the Tree of course, but it's also the perfect opportunity to open ourselves up to meeting "new" family. Because I connected my great aunt's husband to his family I have gotten to talk to a couple of his relatives and to possibly discover a huge family secret linked to my most important brick wall-- which may turn out to be just smoke and mirrors.
