It's come up often that we should do something similar to the WikiTree Challenge for WikiTree members. As a part of our 15th Anniversary celebration this year, we introduced We Will RAWK You.

RAWK stands for Random Acts of WikiTreer Kindness.

How It Works

The event ran in March and June and will run again in August, October and December.

A month before each event, we will put out a call in G2G for RAWK nominations. This is your opportunity to nominate another WikiTreer to be a potential participant.

The WikiTree Events Committee will randomly pick five of the nominated WikiTreers who will then get to be RAWKED.

A month prior to each event, we will also put out a call in G2G for RAWKERS, WikiTreers who would like to help work on the lines of the five participants.

On the 1st of the month, we kick off the event. Everyone who signed up to help with research will have one month to see how much they can increase the CC7 numbers for our five nominated WikiTreers.

Note: Members of the WikiTree Team are not eligible for nomination.

There are two profile stickers available: One for the individuals who are on the receiving end of the research (the ones who are RAWKED) and one for the individuals who are helping with the research (the RAWKERS).

March Recipients

Gill Whitehouse Calling all those experienced in English research!

Bart Molier Most of Bart's ancestry is in The Netherlands and quite complete. He thinks it will be difficult for non-Dutch researchers to break brick walls or add family in the 16 century, but stands ready to be amazed. :-) He also asked for some help from members who can research in England and Scotland to help with the profile of his uncle Ray McCabe who passed away in Glasgow in 2014.

Cindy Cooper Cindy has Acadian and Quebecois ancestry, but is especially hopeful that RAWKers can help with her mother's German lines. Her husband has Norwegian lines that would help her CC7 as well.

Gaile Connolly Gaile would love help with her lines involving Jewish ancestors living in Hungary, Lithuania, Ukraine, and maybe a few other countries in the region. The time period she is stalled at is the late 1800’s.

Erin Robertson Erin is so close to pushing her CC7 over 500. She has ancestry going back several generations in the United States. Starting at the level of her second great-grandparents, there are many unknown locations for her ancestors.

I see there are two stickers for Rawking. However I do not see what we use, could you send them to me, please.

I saw your question about how to use the two Rawking stickers. Can you please send me the instructions you received?
