Welcome to Team Twisted Thistles

This team participates in all marathon challenges. We are primarily concerned with the improvement of Scottish profiles, and those of Scottish lineage worldwide. But, all improvements help our shared tree, so feel free to work from your watchlist. This can be a good opportunity to learn from each other and make collaborative friendships. We communicate during our -thons via G2G postings, which are linked to this page at the top right, as well as a channel on Discord. If you would like to join Discord, contact a Team Captain.

Hi All, I had a great time working on the Connect-a-thon with Twisted Thistles. Sadly because of bad weather, no power and an ancient battery on my computer, I was unable to do anything past Sunday AM :(. Hopefully next year the weather will play nice or I will have a new computer  ;)

Hi Bobbie

No need to worry about being a competitor, that is what the team is for, I am merely one of their fearless leaders...... :)

Not everyone knows about all these lists so in my capacity as a Data Doctor Project Coordinator I am trying to raise awareness about them

Good luck
