Do you want to become an England Project Member in 2019? [closed]

+30 votes

The England Project is an exciting place to be at the moment, we have a few hundred active members improving and creating English Profiles. We have a strong sense of community and teamwork and a great structure so members both new and old work in their areas of interest. We connect, source, and improve bios in our Counties. We correct data errors and encourage ONS and OPS studies, and we grow our own branches of the tree among many other things! Does this sound like something you would like to be part of?

Not only is England an exciting project to be part of, but its unique Orphan Trail will help integrate you into the team. The trail has a two fold benefit, it improves the health of our tree and, if you need it helps you with profile formatting and/or using some quirky English sources!

This is a unique way to join a project, but it’s fun and helps you make connections with members who can help you with your own interests.

If you are interested in joining us this year please Answer below this post (not comment). I will respond by inviting you to the England Google Group which is how we all communicate. When you’re on board we will let you know how you start your Trail.

Every improvement to every English Profile benefits our Global Tree and we look forward to having you on the Project.

Lizzie, Membership PC, England Project

Hello Lizzie, I would love to be a part of the England Project!

I am fairly new here, but have been on other sites Family Search etc, for about 4 years.  I have my entire tree and my husband’s entire tree that are Solely English.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

A high percentage of my history comes from Cumberland, Staffordshire, and Hallamshire in England. Hallamshire or the Sheffield area is where Robinhood resided.
Yes, I would like to become an England Project Manager for Stubbs from Cheshire

Could you please add me to the project?

Thanks Holly
MY Mother was English. I studied ALL of English Literature's major and linear connections to that nations thinking.

My Dad was German mainly and Jewish, some of which people could be English by nationality if not by culture, a point of ambiguity.

I'd like to be part of the England project.

Hi Roberta,

This G2G post is closed. If you'd like to join the England Project, you can express your interest by submitting an answer (not a comment) on the current England Project G2G post.

Rick (Peterson), Hi, So is G2G part of Google?


I DO want to join the England Project, and I by rights should want to join the Germany Project too. As someone else asked: I'm concerned about the tasks and how much time each project would take?  More important what is the kind of "good it will do" for a person if the proper amount of time is spent.
Hi Roberta,

G2G is part of WikiTree (not part of Google). But WikiTree profiles and G2G posts may (hopefully!) be indexed by the Google search engine and returned in Google search results (just like any other publicly viewable web pages on the internet).

Re: joining WikiTree projects, I'd suggest checking out the activities associated with each project and request membership to one to which you feel that you can contribute meaningfully and have the time to do so.

Hi David, welcome to wikitree, you will need to complete the registration process to become a full wikitree member. I will send you a message via your profile.

Hopefully, I have now fully and correctly completed the registration process. What happens next, please?

Hello Lizzie, as I am a transplant to Wales, I am a little closer to England, so if I can help, it would be my pleasure. According to connections, I am 22 degrees off of Queen Victoria, who knew?

A little piece of info, unlike the U.S., in the U.K. a person adopted here can open the adoption records.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello. I'd like to join. I spent the last part of my MA program researching in the Wakefield Manor Rolls so England (and Yorkshire in particular) is an area of particular fascination. :) Thank you!

Hi, I'm specifically interested in working on my, and any other Randle lines in and around Berry Pomeroy, Devon. Also keen to connect the branches I've started of my own more modern (post 1700) ancestors that didn't have profiles at all yet, to existing pre-1700 lines and helping any way I can with those. Keen to collaborate and learn.
by Richard Lackey G2G1 (1.2k points)
Hi Richard,

That’s brilliant, I’m sure Team Devon will be really excited to work with you (and all the other counties!) when you’re all signed up!

I’ll send you a PM, Welcome to the England Project

I'm not sure what the Orphan Trail is.  Please send me more information.  I have many ancestors who immigrated to the USA from England in the late 16th to 17th centuries.
Hi Mary Ann,

Are you a wikitree member? I’m unable to send you a message as your name is linking to an IP address only. I’ll be happy to talk you through our fun Orphan Trail but you will need to be a full signed in member. Any questions feel free to PM me from my profile

Kind Regards,
