The Leaders for the 2020 Virginia Sourcers are:
We're your head cheerleaders, but I encourage everyone to play cheerleader to fellow members of Team Virginia! You can chat and cheer in our Google Chat Group.
The purpose of the Source-a-Thon is to add (valid!) sources to as many profiles as possible. Our wonderful Sourcerers team does this throughout the year but the big push in the fall is such a fun and rewarding challenge!

2020 Source-a-Thon Team Virginia Members & STATS

If you are new and come up with a nickname of your own you want to use let Mindy or Sandy know. If you are returning and want a new nickname for this Thon, let us know as well. If you have a picture you want used and it isn't on the chart let us know. It doesn't have to be your profile picture, it just needs to be on WikiTree somewhere. Let's have fun again!

Let's rock this!

(If the main tracker isn't updating: As long as you are selecting those statuses they will count and will show up when Aleš restarts the main tracker.)
Note: These totals are usually updated manually by me - once an hour as I can (if I'm awake). I'm not able to do the hourly updates this Thon. They are not automatically updated, see the Tracking Page if you want your current total. Thank you for your patience! And Rock On Team Virginia!!!

The Mighty Oaks thank you for the sources you added to WikiTree during the Source-a-Thon. We appreciate all that you did! It was another great showing of community collaboration. We hope you had fun and are looking forward to the next thon.

We at Nor'Easters wish you the best of luck in the 2020 Source-a-thon. Just over 8 hours to go before we kick it into high gear. And remember, HAVE FUN!!!!! Btw, in the team list it points to the wrong space page.
