How do I know which pre-1700 projects I should join?

+8 votes
Just finished the pre-1700 cert and hoping to connect with others looking at English lines.  The list of projects is overwhelming and no idea how to figure out which ones are most relevant to me.  Is there an overview of all the projects anywhere?

You certainly could join the Mayflower Project.

Let me suggest that you concentrate on your own watchlist, cleaning up profiles, adding sources and adding dates.

Hi Ellen, I am a Volunteer Coordinator, I hope I can help.

You mentioned English lines,, you may want to look at the United Kingdom project at:

or the sub project for "England" listed here at (which may be the best place to stary actually).

PS Feel free to contact me direct thru my profile at to answer any further questions you may have.

I looked at your profile Ellen and with no tags it is hard to suggest a project since you are not following any surnames or other interest such as a country or place.

I will get a project leader to contact you and see if he or she can suggest one for you.

Here is a list of projects needing volunteers.
