Lizzie was born in Ealing, London, England on 24th May 1982
Lizzie lived with her mother; Iris and father; Chris in London until she was 3 years old. The family with infant child David moved to The Wirral in the North West of England in 1985 where they remained until today.
In 2000 Lizzie graduated from Grammar School and went on to study Human Geography at the University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England.
After her graduation in 2003 she returned to the Wirral and joined a graduate training programme in retail management where she still works to this day.
She married her long term boyfriend in 2010 and they are still happily married.
Lizzie's fascination with history has always shown through her reading, choice of films, television etc. However her journey through her own ancestry and further interest in supporting the growth of wikitree and helping others all started with one small tattered photograph found in an old tin box in an attic in 2015. This photograph is of Walter Haworth
I have received some amazing support with information from several British institutions & charities and now I want to help others do the same if I can! (Be warned, it took me 2 years to find and prove the picture was my G.Uncle Walter who died aged 19, 01 Aug 1917 in France).

We realise the time has come to dissolve the UK Project in favour of the individual country projects of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
We are checking in with all UK badge holders to find out which country project(s) you would like to be in so you can collaborate with other members, have the opportunity to select which team(s) you would like to join, and so we can ensure you have all the correct badges.
Please respond by PM to let us know which country project(s) you would like to be in. Please don’t assume we know. We are effectively starting from scratch to make sure no one falls through the cracks.
Once you have done this, the Coordinator for Membership in the relevant country project(s) will be in touch to help get you situated.
