A Tip shared by Steven Tibbetts on the G2G Registration page that I thought may be helpful to all of us: He wrote:

  • I know many of us will be adding siblings and children from census data. And I know the easy solution is if you have the census link for say the father, to just copy it to all the children. The problem is technically that is a source for the father with mention of the child. If you click the child's name IN that source it will often give you the source for the child for you to use. Not as fast I know, but much more accurate and proper. (Also, as long as the profile is open, feel free to orphan it so a family member can adopt it if you aren't going to maintain it yourself).


Another tip found by Laura B. :

  • When you click on "Connect A Thon" as the challenge you are working on; on the comment part, please add a statement saying: "X added Y as the ____ of Z."

Or in other words....... "X (put your name) added Mary Johnson as the spouse of John Smith." or "X (your name) added Tom Jones as the child of Bob Jones." If the contribution doesn't generate that kind of statement, it isn't counted.

We have a seasoned group of people who are going to blast through the dirt and debris of those unclean profiles !!!! We are covering the Southern States. We clean up whatever profile that needs cleaning. We have returning members from the 2018 Fall Source-a-Thon and we have many who also participated in the 2018 Spring Clean-a-Thon last year. We are going to all work on the states wherever we choose.

Clean-a-Thon

We don't specifically limit what profiles we edit, but the Southern States are what ties our team together: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas. Many of us have ancestors from these areas and will be focusing on profiles of people from these areas.

Helpful Links: If you are new to working with WikiTree's suggestions/error reports? Do you need a little help understanding how to access and use them? Here's a "Clean-a-Thon" tutorial that shows a step-by-step process that will help!! Click on URL below:

Placing the following text in your bio will put this sticker on your profile (your name automatically appears but you need to enter the year and total eligible scanned items when the challenge is over):

2019 Scan-A- Thon (Completed)

Loretta_s_Images.jpg

Next year (2019) WikiTree will hold its first ever Scan-A-Thon where you scan in photos and documents on profiles to help increase the look and the sources for these profiles. There is a limit of 10 uploads to each profile.

The PARTY starts Friday morning, January 11, at 8 AM (ET) and runs until Monday, January 14, at 8 AM (ET). (Eastern Standard Time is GMT -5.) There will be video chats every few hours with updates on how the event is going and prize drawings. Winners get to choose between a Scan-a-Thon t-shirt of coffee mug. (coffee mug will come in handy for the next Thon) We're encouraging genealogists from all over the world to participate at the same time.

Go HERE and sign up for the event. You need to state the team you wish to be on in your ANSWER. Please don't make it a comment or reply.

Our mission: to Scan and Share all those old family photos and other items we've been meaning to get to!

If you're already part of a team from a previous challenge and want to stay on it, mention that. Not all teams are available for the Scan-a-Thon so you may not end up on the same one. The current teams are listed here. More may be added.

Please be sure to read the rules of participation. Thanks! Remember, Always Have Fun!!!

Here's the link to our Spreadsheet. Although, I don't know what purpose it will serve for this Thon.

2018 Source-A-Thon Participation (Completed}

Registration

Source-a-thon Information

I always keep a document (word page) open with quick replies and source information, makes it real fast to copy and paste rather than type it in.  :)
  • Source-a-Thon Help
  • Source-a-Thon Tutorial This is an older tutorial but a lot of the info is still good. However, use the Challenge Tracker and do not add your sources to the registration thread.
  • Challenge Tracker Tutorial On our super secret Comunication Hub you have to be on the trusted list to see it) we have screen shots of how this works.
  • Cut and past the following into empty profiles or profiles missing any of this.

Goal

The Most Important Thing Is To Have Fun!

Our team goal is to clear out the "Unsourced Profiles category" on WikiTree. Including sources is in our community's Honor Code but inexperienced genealogists don't always record them. Sometimes the source is "Aunt Mabel," as Mags put it. This doesn't mean the information isn't worth preserving or sharing. It's a starting point — information waiting to be confirmed.

Congratulations Sweepers! I wish I could have contributed more. I was using my family and got really bogged down in finding good sources. (I have lots of family lore and scraps of work done by others a long time ago, so searching I went.)
Thanks for all the hard work done making connections on our tree, during this year's Connect-a-Thon!

Hope to see you all at the next marathon!

I woke up early Sunday morning with a terrible bought of vertigo and allergies. I slowly worked on connecting all day Sunday once the spinning and nausea was under control enough that I could sit up. Then, I tried to pull a sneak attack for our team last night.... since I couldn’t sleep. Could never find where our Super Sweepers team were posting/chatting. Lol. Can you tell I had no idea what I was doing, accept adding people to those on the unconnected list? 😂

Debra, thank you for participating while not feeling well!! I have vertigo every once in a while and it is no fun!! You are a trooper for hanging in here with us. Hope to see you again next time.

Ginny

Debra,

You were a real trooper to even try while sick! (I like the idea of a sneak attack though.) There's always next year, and you don't have to limit yourself to the unconnected list! I keep a list of my family lines that I want to "FILL IN" the siblings, children, etc. that aren't my direct line. This year, I didn't even have time to finish the whole list during the Connect-A-Thon. Last year I mainly worked from the unconnected list.

Get some rest!

posted by Peggy McReynolds
Thank you, Peggy. I was working from the list too, then get off on a rabbit trail. The struggle is real.

OMGOSH! I just realized you said we didn’t have to work from the list! Well, I’ll know next time!

Hi Southern Super Sweepers Team members for this year's "Connect- a- Thon"!!! To those who have worked with us before, "welcome back". So glad to see you again.

Now that registration is officially closed for this "Connect a Thon", I wanted to welcome everyone to the team. We have a few new members who just recently joined WikiTree so if you have done these "Thons" before, please help out our new friends and make them feel at home. (I updated our team list above). Would you believe, 39 members signed up with us.

Please see the rest of my note on our "unofficial" chat page here especially our newest WikiTree members:

If you're participating in this year's "Connect-a-Thon" please register (if you haven't done so} by answering the g2g question:- https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/1054269/have-you-registered-for-the-2020-connect-a-thon-yet ... and mention you are with the "Super Sweepers" Team!!

We look forward to working with you all again this July!!

posted by Dorothy Barry
Thanks Dorothy for taking the Lead. My son is now off chemo since it almost killed him in April. They are looking to get him into a trial using some alternative therapy not chemo. He can no longer have chemo and tumors have begun growing again. Will probably entail some travel and last time dates were about a month out which is right when this is taking place. So once again, I am very iffy to even participate. I will hold off registering until I know if I will even be available. But GO Super Sweepers!

Hi Laura. Glad to hear from you.

I am so sorry to hear the progress report on your son. We totally understand if you can't be with us on this Connect-a-Thon. Please take some time for yourself too and be safe as you travel during this time of uncertainty and protests.

Thanks SJ, it has been difficult. He is alive and made it through the surgery. But he is not out of the woods. I am off computer most of today. Tomorrow is iffy as well. I hope to do something with the team late Saturday and on Sunday. Will explain more later. I have to go...

Well that was fun !!!!... We had a little competition going on last night and this morning. It started out with "me" and "Pip" neck to neck in 1st and 2nd place. Then out of the blue here comes "Kathy" moving up the line and obtaining 1st place!!. Then I came back and regained my spot laugh!!! .... but boy am I TIRED!!

Seriously however,I just wanted to say "thank you" to everyone on the Southern Super Sweepers' team and the accomplishments you made to get us to 6th place. I truly believe if we just had another hour, we would have gotten to 5th place. As I mentioned in an earlier post I am really proud of our team!!

Our "Congratulations" to the top 5 teams, and those who reached the stars with over 1 thousand to 3 thousand contributions!!

posted by Dorothy Barry
All I have to say is that you and Kathy pushed me to do more than I would have! And I appreciate it! I never made it to first on the team, and at one time I was 18th overall. I got passed by several folks last night.

We were only a few hundred of making it to fourth.

So I'm running into someone not correcting dates because "Find a grave" Is unsourced?
posted by Lisa (Phelps) Linn M.S.Ed.
edited by Lisa (Phelps) Linn M.S.Ed.
Find-a-Grave is considered unsourced if there is no picture of headstone showing the information on dates etc.
posted by William Foster Jr
Even then, headstones can be wrong. I don't take it as definitive without something confirming - obit, death certificate, etc.
posted by Nan (Lambert) Starjak
I realize that, but the error comes up and to fix it you take the date! Dear God, if I had to check the veracity of

F-A-G for every date that doesn't have paperwork, I wouldn't get anything done!

That's why I don't do FAG suggestions during any kind of "thon." You have to just blindly accept or mark false.
posted by Nan (Lambert) Starjak
edited by Nan (Lambert) Starjak
I've been doing them and it is slow going. Please don't just take word of FAG.
posted by William Foster Jr
This is a point of contention with a lot of folks - a lot of people want to do away with the Find a Grave errors altogether.
posted by SJ Baty
I look for a source like the death cert or birth cert depending on the problem date. If I can find that I use thst date and then either mark Find A Grave as false error if it was wrong or as corrected and leave a note on the profile as to what date we kept and why. If no corroborating data is found i mark it as not corrected and cite the difference in dates. I understand that counts

My husband made me take a break from pouring through boxes looking for more stuff to scan. I sent him into the archives (read that as closets, basement, and attic looking for more to scan. I started with over 100 items and did them all. So now into looking for me. He decided I needed to stop and eat with him before he leaves for the rest of the day. So I am fed, have two very large binders I am now working out of and ready to go yet again....

Is it me or does this thon seem like it just wears you out? I think it is all the physical up and down and lifting. Plus all the old papers aggregate my allergies and I am sneezing and coughing because of it... Sigh... what we do for our love of WT

I did find some photos that I added yesterday after i figure out who they were! They were in a box I brought back from my Aunt's house after she died in Dec of 2018. First chance I had to dig into that box! Take a look at some really cool photos i found from the 1800s and mid to early 1900s go to: Woerner-56 my grandmother, Hempen 5 her husband my grandfather I never saw those portraits of my grandmother!

posted by Laura (Pennie) Bozzay
Laura, you are a superstar! I've done all I had then had to start adding profiles for the pictures. Now I'm out of profiles from my other account to copy info and have to start them from scratch! I have no basement *sigh* and my attic holds only a heater and a bunch of insulation! we soldier on Super Sweepers!
Sorry gang, I spent 99% of yesterday in bed and today is not looking much better. I cannot imagine how bad the flu would have been if I hadn't gotten the flu shot. Good Luck to everyone, I'm heading back to bed.

In a nut shell: no copyrighted images. JPEG scans of under 10MB. No images from other websites. Hope that helps! Family photos, certificates you have, family memorabilia, funeral cards, post cards, letters, and handwritten personal research are things I am doing.

Good luck everyone, We start in about two hours as of this post, Do what you can, and enjoy adding history photos, imagines to your profiles. They will definitely enhance the profile overall. Thank you for being a part of the Southern Super Sweepers for the 2010 Scan A Thon!!!
posted by Dorothy Barry
Just want to remind everyone you do not need to do scans that only match our Southern Super Sweeper areas. Any uncopyrighted scans are ok for this thon! Family photos from all over the world are fair game. Documents you have like birth, marriage, and death certificates are fair game. Family memorabilia is fair game.
