Philpott Name Study

Welcome to the Philpott Name Study Project. The main goal of this project is to gather all of the links to the Philpott surname and it’s variants in one place. This will help us find missing members, merge duplicate profiles, and help each other in gathering information to make a complete profile.

This study will provide source links that can be used in research, a way to contact active Philpott genealogists, and help those that are just starting out, bricked walled, or do not have a lot of time to contribute to the Philpott lines or the worldwide tree of Wiki.

The coordinator does ask that you please follow the Wiki Honor Code that you agreed to before becoming a member and that any member that is found not upholding the code will be asked to leave. Remember to source all information that is being entered into the profiles and if they are not managed by you, to send a message to the profile owner or make sure to input the reasons for the change. Communication is key to make sure that this study is successful.

To join our study, add the categories to your profiles, participate in discussions, and/or contribute details of your name research. Please see the Philpott Name Study project page.
