Welcome

Welcome to the Mighty Oaks scheduling page for the 2021 WikiTree challenge. The challenge will be active for the year 2021. Two weeks (Thanksgiving and Christmas) will be skipped leaving fifty possible weeks of participation. Mighty Oaks will be signing up for at least five of those weeks. You are welcome to participate in weeks that our team isn't. Below are the months we are participating in. Please visit the sign-up post linked below to register.

How to Participate

Registration will be monthly. The registration post will be for the following month. Please sign up as early as possible so that WikiTree can successfully coordinate teams and award points. Badges will be awarded for the month that you participate.
Everyone that participates during a certain week will be working on the family of a pre-determined person. This influencer in the genealogy community will be announced with the registration post. WikiTree will have a new person each week to focus on, with the exception of the two weeks off near the end of the year.
The Captain of your team will lead the collaboration throughout the week. They will answer any questions you have about which profiles to work on, and offer suggestions on directions to take with your research. There will be a G2G thread for that week that you can bookmark so that you can remark on your progress, or ask questions.
Registered team members will have their point totals tracked and reported automatically. Please see the Basic Scoring for information on how you can earn points.

Team Participation

Unlike our regular "Thons," we are expected to do some prep for the event. Please look at the ancestral line you have chosen and see who you might want to work on. Look at the locations and see if you will need research assistance from other WikiTreers.

Tracking

There is a spreadsheet for tracking purposes. You can find it here. Go ahead and pick the ancestral line you want to work on and mark it with an X. Once you've decided on a profile you want to start on you an replace the X with the Wiki-ID of that profile.
