Team Missouri covers Missouri and the states that share a border with her, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska & Illinois. Missouri is known as the "Show Me" state. We want and need proof! (Works great for the Source-a-thon! LOL)
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. Follow this link to find out more about the first ever Scan-a-Thon.

Find Unsourced Profiles
From the US Unsourced Profiles list you may select the state you wish to work on. For example Missouri has 185 Unsourced profiles, Tennessee has 371 Unsourced profiles as of 25 September 2016. More may be added in coming days.
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 or an Ancestry Member Tree.
Suggestions for finding sources:
- Although not listed below, records (not family trees) from familysearch.org are valid sources.
- Especially try the Source section created by WikiTree. Lots of great sources and information.
- Another great resource on WIkiTree is Kitty's Library. Lots of good online sources, and all free.
If you find a valid source:
- Edit the profile to add the source, according to our Sources guide.
- See more in the Participation section of the Source-a-Thon page.
- Don't forget to remove the "Unsourced" category at the top of the Biography section.
