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

+21 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, 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 G2G Crew (820 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,
