Source-a-Thon Information

See this page for information about prizes - it has the schedule too.

For information about joining or creating a team, check out this page. (Hint - for the Source-a-Thon, you need to say you want to join Team Virginia when you post an answer to register.)

The Tables Are Ready!

Click one of the following links to reach a table of Unsourced profiles prepared from the database for Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky. You can also use the Unsourced categories to find profiles that need sources, but the tables reached through the links below have a lot more information than the Category pages show.
Whether you source a profile you found through the table or a category page, when you save the profile, there will be a button for "Challenge Tracker" at the top of the page. Click that, complete the form (add your WikiTree ID if needed, check the appropriate challenge, and describe your action), then click the "Add" button & the profile will automatically be counted toward your total in the challenge you selected.[1]

Team Virginia Information

See the 2016 Team Virginia page. Info and links are still good. See also the 2016 Virginia Sources Quick Reference page - a cheat sheet, if you will. Post a copy of your citation(s) on that page for easy reference during the Source-a-Thon and a great resource after!

How Are We Doing?

During the Source-a-Thon, every time you source a profile and record it through the "Challenge Tracker" (the 2018 Source-a-Thon box should be checked for you already) it will record automatically in tables showing progress. The tables display a variety of information, including overall totals & Team and User totals.

There's a G2G thread for Source-a-Thon feedback - see https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/695445/do-you-have-feedback-on-the-source-a-thon

And posting a link to Steve's tutorial mentioned in the thread to remind me to post about it next year!


Cheers, Liz

You can copy/paste this coding to your page (changing the number of profiles to the number you sourced) to add this sticker to your profile. You can also change (or delete) the "extra=" text.
... ... ... participated with Team Virginia during the 2018 Source-a-Thon, adding sources to 3.972 previously unsourced profiles. We finished in 6th place!

Thanks y'all - Don't know how I missed that the member table had last year's numbers!
d'oh! Thanks for adding this year's numbers to the table Mindy!
posted by Liz (Noland) Shifflett
Thank you Mindy ... I am an accurate person because I had worked for 18 years for our county as our many sheriff's Chief tax deputy/County Finance officer and with me things have to be accurate in numbers because I was audited by the state of WV every year.

Hi Andrea,

These 'totals' were updated several times during the Source-A-Thon (just like last year). They don't show the final numbers but I can update that now. Thank you for all your hard work adding sources!


posted by Mindy Silva
Liz I am working on the ones that I had done and the list is showing a different number than what you had given us for totals Mine is showing 571 profiles and you are showing 409 done by me. https://wikitree.sdms.si/Challenges/SourceaThon/2018/TeamAndUser.htm

I posted this message to you at GMT time 20:50 and our time is 04:50 pm EDT/or 16:50 GMT time something doesn't jive between the two totals and this is just on mine that I had done.

Just wanted to say again how wonderful Team Virginia is! I had a lot of fun & I've pretty much finished up with my list of "need to followup" on profiles that I sourced. I didn't use the Team's Category:Sourced by Team Virginia - 2018 because I'm STILL working on profiles I added to last year's Category:Sourced by Team Virginia - 2017.

Just wanted to remind everyone to do the followup for the profiles they added to this year's category (and last year's, if you haven't already).

Cheers, Liz
