Rules

https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/453282/will-you-participate-the-source-thon-current-registrations

  • Sept 30-Oct 2 "Source A Thon":

https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/454684/do-you-have-questions-about-the-upcoming-source-a-thon

Goal

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.

What is Source-a-thon

Participation

  • To officially participate you need to register in advance.
  • Registrants will be given the Source-a-Thon badge and assigned a race number. We'll use that number to draw the random winners for the many door prizes.
  • Get your race bib: [1]
  • Registration is free. Like everything on WikiTree.
  • Join a team: [2] - (Join Team Southern Super Sweepers)
  • Participating means removing profiles from the Unsourced Profiles category.
  • 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.
  • Profiles need to come from the Unsourced Profiles categories. They cannot be profiles that you created.
  • Valid sources include census records, BMD records/index references, military documents, land documents, wills, etc. A source cannot be another family tree, such as Geni tree or an Ancestry Member Tree.
  • Include Research Notes on the profile. Here list places areas you searched but did not find a source such as Examples from 2016:
Google searches turn up only other trees
Searches at Ancestry turn up nothing but unsourced trees. Martha's name seems to be :::Mary/Martha Forbes Drake. So searched on Drake also.

  • NOTE: when finished adding a source, be sure to remove the template from the profile. {{Unsourced }} Then "SAVE"!! Your SAT (Source_A-Thon) challenge will show at top of page in green


A Final ANSWER from Chris

If you think what you've done should count, click to the Challenge Tracker button after saving changes and record it. [Video Walk-Through]

Only do this once per profile.

The statistics reported by Ales on his WikiTree+ server will be the counts as members have reported them. Because his Data Doctor magic enables him to track which profiles are in the Unsourced Profiles category or otherwise appear unsourced, those numbers may be reported separately, but your total will include everything you've reported.

Update: The answer to most questions about recording our sourcing achievements can now be found here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/470040/know-participate-source-thon-challenge-tracker-makes-easy

1) Select a profile from the Unsourced Profiles category.
2) On the profile's pull-down menu select "Research."
3) Select where to search. I usually use FamilySearch.
4) If you find a source, record it on the profile. I copy FamilySearch's handy "Citing this Record" citation and paste it into a set of reference tags.
5) Remove the template that creates the black banner and save the changes.
6) After saving, click the Challenge Tracker button and record the point. Ales does the rest!!
7) Return to step one and repeat until eyes glaze over.

Have fun!

Sourcing

1) Participating means removing profiles from the Unsourced Profiles category. They cannot be profiles that you created.

2) 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.

3) Valid sources include census records, BMD records/index references, military documents, land documents, wills, FindaGrave. A source cannot be another family tree, such as Geni or an Ancestry Member Tree.

When you find a valid source:

  • Edit the profile to add the source, according to our Sources guide.
  • Remove the {{Unsourced}} or [[Category:Unsourced Profiles]] categorization or categorizations, and save the profile.
  • Update the status to have it counted, i.e. <SAVE>. More information on this is coming soon.
    • 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.
  • Writing "1880 US Census" or familysearch is not a source citation, it is just a comment. Please be sure to use full source citations with url's.

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

Most to see records here you have to be Logged in:

  • 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.

2017 Spring Clean-a-Thon (Achieve)

Welcome, to the first ever "Spring Clean-a-Thon"! We are going to take the south by the way of a clean sweep of any and all (if that were possible) database errors that WikiTree has indicated we have.

We will be covering the following 13 states in the Southern part of the United States: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas.

Note: Tennessee (lucky stiffs) have their own team called "Team Tennessee. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Team_Tennessee_-_2017_Spring_Clean-a-Thon

And... Virginia, and West Virginia have their own team called "Team Virginia" https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:Virginia_Spring_Cleaners Team Virginia - 2017 Spring Clean-a-Thon

Good luck to them and all the teams working this weekend on the Spring Clean-a-Thon!!!! Our start time is tomorrow night at 21 Apr, 11 PM CDT, or 22 Apr, 12 AM EDT!!!

The purpose of the Clean-a-Thon is to decrease the number of database errors, which is what the Database Errors Project does all the time.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • For more experienced researchers could you work on the 200/300 error numbers where it says a parent is too young or too old to have said child...
  • Another time consuming error fix is the "Unclean" profiles and "empty" profiles.
  • Work on the "Find A Grave" error number 570's series
  • For those fairly new, maybe you could work on the 600 number series concerning birth and death location information and also marriage location info.
  • Another minor error that's usually fast to fix is the Heading errors where they lack a == or have too many === or a word right after the == situations.
  • Major error corrections such as "LNAB" surname incorrect or problem involved would need a profile manager to correct it. Also major problems with birth and death dates. In these cases it would be good to leave them a note on that particular profile stating what you feel the error is and why. IE: Person's birth date is after their death date, or LNAB is a married name instead of maiden name or Last name at birth.
  • In short, feel free to choose your type of errors that you are used to working with and go clean them up!!!!!

Any questions: Please post a comment here on this page, or on our G2G Team page using the project tag, or send me a private message. Thanks! Dorothy B.

On First Day: Check in on the Team link on g2g with your post as an <ANSWER>, include your name, Bib Number. You should then be able to post a continuing run of profiles you sourced.

  • Include Research Notes on the profile. Here list places areas you searched but did not find a source such as Examples from 2016:
No Find a grave memorial William Thompson d. 1782 or Martha Thompson d. 1816
Google searches turn up only other trees
Searches at Ancestry turn up nothing but unsourced trees. Martha's name seems to be ::Mary/Martha Forbes Drake. So searched on Drake also.

HOW to Source

See: Sources

::INFO: NEW INFORMATION WILL BE COMING ABOUT HOW WE WILL LIST OUR SOURCED PROFILES THIS YEAR.... How to Count Sources

Research Notes

Some questions and answers that may help you out:

  • How to find your state on the Database errors report above:

(Note Database errors are now known as Suggestions!! )

Step 1: go to green box, and click on WikiTree+
Step 2: Next go down the list until you see Tree Errors/Suggestions
Step 3: Under that look for Location and click on that.
Step 4: Next where you see Slovenija(which is a country), take that out and put in which state your interested in researching, from our list of states.
Step 5: Now click on Location Errors/Suggestions. Now look to right; you will see a spread sheet that will appear with all the errors on it.

Once you finish work on an error, you can set a status and enter a comment for it on the database errors report. There are five actions:

  • Comment (no change in status): This enables you to add a comment without changing the status.
  • Not corrected: This sets the error as not corrected. It will continue to be shown in all lists.
  • Corrected (hide until next recheck): This sets the error as corrected so it will be hidden from error reports until next dump. After that it will be shown again if it was not actually corrected.
  • False error (hide forever): This sets the error as a false error. It will be hidden from WikiTree+ error reports forever.
  • Proposed merge (hide for 30 days): This hides the error for 30 days thus giving a merge time to be completed. The error will be hidden from prepared error lists.

Each time you work an error and set the status, you'll earn a contribution point!

I didn't get as much as I would have liked done this year, but it was still fun. Thanks for having me on the team.

THANK YOU TO ALL !!

Just wanted to say, how great it was to be working with all of you and thank you for all the hard work. I was going to make comments during the CaT especially when Loretta (I think it was you) said you fell asleep at your computer. I wanted to ask if you had to clean up the drool as well. What a smile and a giggle you gave me. After that I consumed an over abundance of jelly beans. I really like the black ones!!
