What Do I Do?

Taken from the Source-a-Thon page:
Participating means removing profiles from the Unsourced Profiles category. They cannot be profiles that you created.

Select an Open (white) profile from anywhere in the category or one of its subcategories and search for sources to back up the facts of the person's life.

See the Pre-1500 Resource page, for some suggested sources. A source cannot be another family tree, such as Geni or an Ancestry Member Tree.

If you find a valid source:

If you find a valid source:
  1. Edit the profile to add the source, according to our Sources guide.
  2. Remove the {{Unsourced}} Research Note Box tag.
  3. Save the profile and click the Challenge Tracker button.
  4. On the Challenge Tracker, select the Source-a-Thon checkbox.
Visit the Source-a-Thon Instruction Video
for a step-by-step walkthrough of these instructions.

If you don't find a source after searching, please add a Research Notes section to the profile. Say where you have looked and sign your comment with four tildes (~~~~) so it is dated. For example: "Looked for John in the US Census records for 1900-1940 and couldn't find him on FamilySearch or Ancestry." This way the next researcher knows where to start.
