2019 Scan A Thon

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.

Southern Super Sweepers Spreadsheet

Spreadsheet Primer

Graphic Primer for Spreadsheet

For your convenience all of our Unsourced Profiles are listed on this spreadsheet by State. When you click on the State name, a small link will pop-up right above the State's name, click that link and you will see all of the unsourced profiles for that State by century.
At the very bottom of the main sheet of the spreadsheet you will see your name. Please, please, please indicate what state and century and what page in that century you are working on, this will help keep each of us on separate areas so we won't intrude on another Sweeper.  :)

G2G Chat

We will use the G2G page to cheer each other on! We will pass along general information here as well.

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.

Additional Source Links

FamilySearch.org

  • FamilySearch.org has the recommended citation to list, below the link for the person you have searched for. Listing their Sources is easy, just <copy and paste>

Ancestry.com

  • Pay to play site, must be logged in to see records.
  • When you click on View Record, look toward the bottom where there are a couple of citation options. Please include both.
  • For census records, source resembles this:
Source Citation Year: 1880; Census Place: Mcdonald, Barry, Missouri; Roll: 672; Family History Film: 1254672; Page: 273C; Enumeration District: 003
Original data: Tenth Census of the United States, 1880. (NARA microfilm publication T9, 1,454 rolls). Records of the Bureau of the Census, Record Group 29. National Archives, Washington, D.C.
Combined thus:
Year: 1880; Census Place: Mcdonald, Barry, Missouri; Roll: 672; Family History Film: 1254672; Page: 273C; Enumeration District: 003 Original data: Tenth Census of the United States, 1880. (NARA microfilm publication T9, 1,454 rolls). Records of the Bureau of the Census, Record Group 29. National Archives, Washington, D.C.
  • Do not add trees from Ancestry.com or My Heritage trees.. Only add sources.
  • For other Ancestry records: Again, look for both the source citation and the Original Data citation if both are available--and you might also include these words Found on Ancestry.com if that isn't already in the citation. For census records this isn't necessary because they are now readily available just about everywhere. A link to the source is the best bet.

Google Hangouts

They will be hosting live Google Hangouts throughout the weekend to cheer each other on. During every chat they will draw a winner for a door prize. Every participant who is online and adding sources during that time will be eligible. See https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Source-a-Thon#Prizes

Thanks, Pip. At this point I am afraid if this event happens next year, I won't have very many items to upload! We'll see what happens.

Proud of all your hard work, Virginia! I had to create a few profiles, too, when I found something to scan!

The Scan-A-Thon was great - enoyed the team comments and cheering on one another. It was also an eye-opener for me. I saw that I needed to add spouses for some of my collateral families and source them. Actually, I had photo for spouses and no where to put them. I also found that I had some photos that were not scanned and waiting on my computer. Anyway, it was fun once again being on this team. Congratulations, one and all!!

Thanks, Kathy! I saw pics I’d never seen before, but it was the new docs I discovered that added so much.

SJ -- That is very exciting news. I would completely agree that the Scan-A-Thon brought new records to light. It wasn't I examined the old photos that my grandfather had "somewhat labeled" that I discovered the man he kept labelling as Bill -- so many pictures and Bill looked just like Chic (only older) -- that I was looking at my great-great-uncle -- Chic's brother! A picture to go with a profile.

And, it was great fun working with everyone. Pip, you rocked out!

You're right Pip, it was great working with everyone and I had a lot of fun. Dug out an old photo album that I received from my Grandfather before he died and discovered a lot of photos of grandparents, greats, 2x & 3x great grandparents who I have never seen before. If anything, this Scan A Thon has brought some dormant records into light!

I saw those, too. Well past the 10 limit. Still, it was GREAT FUN working with all of you. What a special team!
