English version below

Deze Connect-a-Thon loopt van vrijdag 22 april 2022 (14.00 uur) tot en met maandag 25 april 2022 (14:00 uur).
Hier is een tijdzone calculator voor als je hulp nodig hebt om de juiste tijd te bepalen in jouw deel van de wereld, je hoeft alleen nog maar je eigen locatie toe te voegen.
Tijdens de Connect-a-Thon zullen we gebruik maken van onze
Connect-a-Thon G2G-chat april 2022 en Discord chat.

Meedoen ? Voeg je WikiTree ID hier onder toe aan de lijst en vergeet niet je eerst hier in deze Connect-a-Thon april 2022 registratie G2G aan te melden. Plaats daar een answer (!) waarin je vertelt dat je mee wilt doen en met welk team ! (Team Flying Dutchmen - Vliegende Hollanders) Om deel te kunnen nemen moet je een WikiTree member zijn en de Honor Code hebben onderschreven. De laatste dag waarop je je kunt registreren is woensdag 20 april, 2022.

Doel en puntentelling

Ons doel voor de Connect-a-Thon is om het aantal profielen dat geen verbinding heeft met onze grote boom te verminderen. Dit doen we door 72 uur lang zoveel mogelijk nieuwe profielen aan te maken en te verbinden met een ander profiel. Op deze manier wordt de kans steeds groter dat er een al bestaande verbinding gevonden wordt.
Omdat dit natuurlijk wel een Thon is (en we natuurlijk allemaal van een wedstrijdje houden), verdien je voor elk nieuw profiel dat je aanmaakt een punt.
Alle regels samengevat:

  • Voor elk NIEUW profiel dat je aanmaakt tijdens de Connect-a-Thon krijg je een punt (dus aangemaakt tussen vrijdag 22 april 2022, 14.00 uur en maandag 25 april 2022, 14.00 uur) Wat bedoelen we hier mee?
    • Zorg ervoor dat het nieuwe profiel met minstens 1 ander profiel verbonden is
      • Voeg een vader of een moeder toe, beide is 1 punt
      • Voeg een broer of zus toe, elk is 1 punt
      • Voeg een echtgenoot of echtgenote toe, dit is 1 punt (of meerdere als deze persoon vaker getrouwd is)
      • Voeg een zoon of dochter toe, elk kind is 1 punt
    • Elk nieuw profiel moet minstens 1 bronvermelding hebben om het punt te laten te tellen.
  • Wanneer krijg je GEEN punt?
    • Als je een profiel aanmaakt dat je niet verbindt met een ander profiel

Waar te beginnen?

Er zijn verschillende manieren om nog toe te voegen of te verbinden profielen te kiezen:

(Team Flying Dutchmen) To participate you need to be a WikiTree member who has signed the Honor Code. The cut-off date for registering is midnight on Wednesday, April 20, 2022.

Goal and scoring

Our goal for the Connect-a-Thon is to decrease the number of profiles that are not connected to our big tree by spending. We do this by creating as many new profiles as possible for 72 hours and connecting them to another profile. This way we are increasing the opportunity to find a connecting to an already existing profile.
Because this is still a Thon (and we all love to compete), you will get a point for each new profile you create.
All rules summarized:

  • For each profile you create during the Connect-a-Thon you will get a point (so created between Friday April 22, 2022 14.00 hour and Monday April 25, 2022 14.00 hour)
    • Make sure this new profile is connected to at least 1 other profile
      • Add a father or mother, both is 1 point
      • Add a brother or sister, each is 1 point (you will only get this point if you first added the fater or mother and only after that the brother or sister)
      • Add a husband or wife, this is 1 point (or multiple if this person married more often)
      • Add a son or daughter, each child is 1 point
    • Each new profile must have at least one source in it for the point to be counted
  • When don't you get a point?
    • If you create a profile and which you don't connect to another profile

Where to start?

There are a few different ways to choose profiles to add to or connect:

  • Use WikiTree+ to create your own list. See WikiTree+ Tips voor het Netherlands Project for an extensive userguide.
  • Work from your own Watchlist:
    One of the easiest ways to participate is to work on building out your own family lines. Sometimes we focus so much on our direct lines that we forget about the collateral ones. You can work on building outward, not just upward or downward.
  • Work on your Unconnected Profiles:
    If you click on the "Find" menu in the top right of the WikiTree screen and select "Unconnected People", you will see a list of the people on your watchlist who are not yet connected to the main tree. You can sort that list several ways, and also limit it to a particular surname. If you click on the highlighted word "total" in the first paragraph on that page, you will see a list of all unconnected profiles on WikiTree, which works the same way
  • 'Needs Profiles Created Category
    This category exists as a way of noting profiles that have sources for family members who do not yet have profiles on WikiTree.
  • The Connectors Chat Page
    The Connectors Chat page has tables listing the largest unconnected branches on WikiTree, unconnected branches which are particularly challenging to connect for various reasons, and unconnected notables.
  • The DBE Unconnected page
    The DBE Unconnected page lists reports for different countries in the world, showing unconnected branches with at least one profile which says that the person in the profile was born or died in that country. Here's the link for Unconnected Netherlands.
  • See also: Places to find unconnected profiles.

Just toddling by to thank you all for your combined contributions during the January 2022 Connect-a-Thon. Together we grow a healthier Tree.
Two tortoises — Hertyl and Spertyl Slowsky — stand facing each other.  Between them is the stylised WikiTree "DNA Tree" logo, with the words "Wonderful WikiTreer" superimposed over the lower portion of the globe.  Beneath the tableau are the words "We're all winners in the end" — because we are.  All winners.
First, Last, or in between - We are All Winners working together.

We look forward to seeing you again next time around.

Hi All,

The last points are in and we can be really proud. Wow! How hard everyone worked.

Wonderful we had such a big and great team.

Thank you lots!!! Colleen, Astrid and Eef!

Was nice to be focused on adding profiles... some information I already found 3 years ago, but never made time to add... Connect-a-Thon is a good opportunity to work on it!

Thanks for the organization!

posted by Henk Links
Yes Henk, I added also families I wanted to add for such a long time but never took the time!

Thank you for your great effort!

Pfff, de eerste punten zijn binnen. Maar ik weet niet hoever ik het nog ga trekken. Mijn verkoudheid (of zou het toch corona zijn?) heeft me goed te pakken. Ik voel me een beetje als een zak natte chips ...

awww. Peter. I hope you feel better soon. Get some rest. No need to push yourself too hard. I like to push myself to improve during the next -thon. I'm in a competition with myself.

Ohhhhhhhh, ik hoop echt dat het beter met je gaat en anders lekker je bed in en uitzieken.

Hi Peter,

I hope you feel better today. Thank you too for all you did.

Dank je As',

Ik voel me een stuk beter (de chips zijn weer droog :-) ). Wel lullig dat die 10 mensen die ik heb toegevoegd eigenlijk alleen maar een aanloop waren om een heel stel Van Munster's die ik klaar heb staan, te kunnen toevoegen. Kunnen we binnenkort niet een "Nederlanders-toevoegen-thon" organiseren?

Blij dat de zak weer droog is. Natte chips is sowieso IEUW! :)

Leuk idee Peter. Echt! Ik ga het onthouden. Krijg direct weer nieuwe ideeen.

Maar we gaan nu eerst voor de jaarlijkse Netherlands Project Liberation Challenge, of wel de Bevrijdingschallenge van het Nederland Project. Willen het wat grootser opzetten dus dat kost wat meer tijd dan normaal.

Whoop-whoop! We left the harbour! And Minke is sailing in front!
Hallo allemaal! Wat een geweldig aantal team members hebben we al.

Voor alle harde werkers bewaar nog even het toevoegen van familie tot de Connect-a-Thon. Want elk toegevoegd nieuw familie lid (ouder, zus of broer, partner of kind aan een al bestaand profiel tijdens de Thon is een punt! Dus wil je aan een nieuwe familie werken zorg dan dat een familielid al bestaat op WikiTree voor 14 januari. Dan tellen de familieleden die toevoegd tijdens de Thon mee!

To all hard workers, please stop adding family to already existing profiles till the Connect-a-Thon. Every added family member (parent, sibling, spouse or child) you add during the Thon to an excisting profile is a point! So if you like to work on a new family make sure that just one family member has a profile before the Thon starts!

It will be fun again!

Hello Flying Dutchmen,

I just wanted to send a message to say hello and that unfortunately I won’t be able to compete this thon. I am currently taking a break from WikiTree. Just know when I get back I’ll help all I can. I love the Flying Dutchmen and I wish you all luck.

Hi Francis,

Take good care of yourself. Make sure you put your school and family first. You will always be welcome here at WT and in our team. But real life is much more important, especially at your age. 😘

Looks like a great team and I am just finalizing my plan of attack.

Great song and it was nice to see Toronto (about 150 miles from here) was included. If you didn't know the video was shot at Toronto's City Hall about a mile from where I use to work.

P.S. Bea did you get my email of July 3rd?
