All profiles added count if they are attached to an existing profile. Once you have a relative added, you can then continue up or down the family line as much as you want to. As long as the first profile already exists on WikiTree. You get one point for every profile added. All added profiles must have at least one primary source (Ancestry, Family Search, and Geni are not sources. Think documents here.)

Progress Tracking
... ... ... participated with Joyner Joiners during the 2020 Connect-a-Thon.

2020 Team

  1. Veni Joyner Team Leader

Session 1 10pm-2:30am; Start Position -; 45 profiles connected; 9*Joiner; 9*Joyner; 27*other surnames; 3 separate family branches; end position 24th

Session 2 9:30am-12:30 ; start position 75th 11 profiles connected; ; 4*Joyner; 7*other; 1 family branch; end position 75th

Session 3 2:30pm- ; start position 78th; end position 79th

Day 2 Session 4 9am-1:30am ; start position 119th End position 77th with a total of 151 connections!

Great team participation however when on of the team has a Long sleep, then all the team has a LONG Sleep and the team position falls away badly!

Day 3 Session 5 8:30am- 10pm; start position 94th (151connections); End position 65th with 246 connections

I added 113 connections to one unconnected Joyner/Joiner branch in Crawford, Georgia, USA, after adding 78 connections to that branch, I saw a wife with a maiden name of Braddock and immediately I thought that there was a good chance of finding a connection the the big tree because of the work Campbell Braddock with the Braddock surname study. I added the wife with no match but when I attempted to add her mother up popped a match with an existing profile of which Campbell Braddock was the Profile Manager! Thanks Campbell
