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 within our Counties. We correct data errors, improve old Gedcom profiles, and encourage ONS and OPS studies, among many other things! Does this sound like something you would like to be part of?

You will begin with our unique Orphan Trail (read about it here), which is the gateway into the project. 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!

Not only is England an exciting project to be a part of, but our Orphan Trail is a fun way to join the project! And once you have finished the Trail, you will be able to join any of our other teams, and make connections with members who share your own interests.

If you are interested in joining us this year, please ANSWER below this post (not comment, or we may miss you!). I will respond with joining instructions and get you into our England Project Google Group, which is how we all communicate. Once you’re on board, we will let you know how to start your Trail.

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

I'm interested in joining but wondering how much time I'll be expected to give, please? - I do transcribing & checking transcripts of Parish records, as part of a team in my home city already, as well as other projects. Thank you.

I have lots of family lines from England which I am trying to work on.

I have a particular interest in the Molesworth family from Northampton, which I have been slowly trying to add a mass of sources for. You can find this under Molesworth-131, tracing his ancestors back. I also started another project, focusing just on trying to connect all Molesworth's worldwide, focusing on those who have come to Australia, and those in the UK. I have connected numerous people into our larger world tree, who weren't already connected in, by putting in many of the descendants of Molesworth-131 and to a lesser degree Molesworth-124.

 So, I am interested in being part of the team, as I try and reach back and make as many connections as I can.

Thank you.

Please change the Tag from England to England_?????. I don't wish to receive emails about every profile of a person named England. E.g., Ireland's tag is Irish_Roots, and Wales is Wales_project. Scotland has the same issue.

I am interested in the England project and ready for the Orphan Trail.  Many of my family lines originate in England as well as a few from Wales and Ireland.  This is a great opportunity to learn how to research in the British Isles.

Hi Fran

Would like to take part in an orphan trail ~ sounds like an awesome way for a new-ish wikitree-er like me to learn.

I am also doing my Crescent, Taunton, One Place Study and research on St George's Church, Wilton, Taunton gravemarkers.

Many thanks
