Northwest Terriers Connect a Thon
NORTHWEST TERRIERS
During the Connect-A-Thons we will focus on Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.


The purpose of the Connect-a-Thon is to add as many profiles as possible to our main Global Family Tree. This way more connections will be made, now and in the future!


When Do We Start and Finish?
It kicks off at 08:00 AM EST, on Friday morning, April 12, 2024
and ends at 08:00 AM EST Monday morning, EDT April 14, 2024.

You need to register in advance to participate. Final registration ends at midnight on the Wednesday before the Thon.

Don't forget to check the times for the video Hangouts. This is your chance to win a t-shirt! Here is a time zone calculator if you need help figuring out the right time in your part of the world. All Thon times are based on the Eastern time zone in the United States (GMT -4).

Goals

Plan of Action

The cut-off date for registering is midnight on the Wednesday right before the Thon starts. This means there is plenty of time to tell a friend and grow our team (wink, wink). It's going to be a fun weekend adding profiles to the existing ones. Check out the tutorial!!
  • Try the tutorial: Click HERE (This isn't a "walk-through." It's various help sections to make adding profiles easier)
  • Work from your Watchlist (My WikiTree menu in upper right then Watchlist). Click on "Edit Date" to move the oldest to the top and start looking for profiles that need parents, siblings or children!
Hey - this way you get to help two ways at once!
  • However you do it just add, add, add! As long as you are connecting a relative to any profile on WikiTree you get a point for each one.

Have Fun!!!

Most of all, have fun with your team! Every little bit that you do improves the health of our global tree. This way you get to meet new friends, and chat with current friends, in the process!

Two tortoises, Hertyl and Spertyl, dressed in their spiffy Connect-a-Thon Tuxedo coats, are holding a large picture frame containing an image of a large bowl of candy-coated chocolates (actually they're Australian "Smarties" - older than "M&Ms".  Across the bowl is the phrase "Thankls for the snacks (with "snacks" crossed out) err, the 'Thon".  Between Hertyl and Spertyl, in the centre top above the picture frame, are the words "Hertyl and Spertyl just want to say".

In reading other participants questions - I think I've figured out that the connect-a-thon only counts NEW profiles.
I've been adding connections this morning and they don't seem be included on the team report??
I've registered and selected the Northwest Terriers. How could I not? My dog Mikey looks just like the team logo and I live in Indiana!! Many ancestors lived in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio.
Welcome to the Northwest Terriers team Victoria!! Thank you for signing up. It's going to be a fun weekend. Let me know if I can be of any assistance or answer any questions along the way. I'm from the Detroit area of Michigan.
