Live Video Chats

Don't forget to check the times for the video Video Hangouts. This is your chance to win a t-shirt or other great prizes! 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).

For more information on other Thon participation, check out our main team page.


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.

The goal of the event is to clear out the Unsourced Profiles category on WikiTree. Although including sources is in our community's Honor Code, inexperienced genealogists don't always record them. Sometimes the source is "Aunt Mabel." This doesn't mean the information isn't worth preserving or sharing. It's a starting point — information waiting to be confirmed.

  • 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!

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!

I can't seem to figure out how to join the Discord... admittedly, I have only ever used Discord once and it was years ago so I don't remember what I'm doing with it.
posted by Katrina Kegel
I’m I’ll so will not be able to participate. So sorry.
Are there any Team stats anywhere for us, so we can see how we did as a team?
posted by Douglas Kohn
I'm up to 30 profiles, but I spend a little more time building their profiles. Also have found a few connections without sources, so I've added those. And I've added a note on the ones that I have not found any sources for.
Shonda, this is wonderful. This is often what we need to do and it does take time.

Thank you, Jean

Yes, absolutely! Thank you so much.


Do you do the Clean-a-Thon, too? If so, I have an image for that, as well. And I can do a "button" of your pooch, if you'd like. (I worked so hard to copy that dog, I felt it needed to be used for each of the 'Thons! Poke-tongue smilie (black and white). )

If you don't currently have a Clean-a-Thon page, I can upload that image to your main page - if you'd like.

I have done Connect-a-Thon and Source-a-Thon but not sure about Clean-a-Thon. So many Thons, so little time!

If you have the time, yes, we'd love a button and feel free to post that pooch anywhere you like. Terriers are persistent little dogs (I've had two) so we will be persistent with the little pooch you worked so hard on.

Thanks again, Jean

I uploaded "banner" images to your main page, and g2g-sized "buttons" (I put them in the text body of your page as well). I have larger buttons for each 'Thon, too, although I didn't upload those. I will upload the Traveling Terrier without 'Thon icons images I did, just so they're there.

I created an image for you for this page, with your pooch, and the WT Source-a-Thon image instead of the Connect-a-Thon tree. If you want it.
