We're mixing things up again for the next WikiTree Challenge. This one will be a special Year of Family Connections challenge focused on the world's most famous connection anchor, Kevin Bacon. His ancestry is already well-developed on WikiTree, but remarkably, his wider connections are not. There appear to be hundreds of collateral relatives that could be added. We will be adjusting our scoring for this challenge so that we award points for every profile added within six degrees.
To make things interesting, we will be recording every single member's connection distance to Kevin Bacon at the start of the week. Then we will record it at the end of the week. Whose connection distance shrunk? Whose shrunk the most? Are any members within six degrees? We'll have some fun with this.
The week officially began on Thursday, June 2nd at noon EDT (4pm UTC) and will end at noon EDT (4pm UTC) on June 9th (You can use World Time Buddy or another time converter to find out your local time). You don't need any particular research skills to help, so join us in the fun! Live chat will occur in Discord, so be sure to let us know if you need help joining the WikiTree Discord server.
