Another fun challenge
Would like to help UK adoptees
I am interested in the Bilbe family of Sheerness & Rotherhithe - I have DNA matches to this family and am trying to identify how they fit
I've been working hard with the Sourcerer's but finding I am not satisfied with just adding a source, so end up writing a biography with multiple in-line sources and adding images when I can so I think I am more geared towards biobuilders!
Just learning about Categorization and how to apply them to profiles
Ancestors from St. Peter Port, Guernsey...looking for categories
CURNICK is my maiden name. I'd love to collaborate with anyone else research CURNICKS. Member of https://www.facebook.com/groups/16565464935/ The World Wide Curnick Connection
Relatively uncommon surname in my ancestry
Genetic Genealogy has been mine main focus for the last year, and I have found DNA to be a useful tool. I am also helping other people try to use DNA to identify unknown biological fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers (because I just don't have enough to do!)
PHILLPOTT is my maternal maiden name. I'd love to collaborate with anyone else descended from PHILLPOTTs from England
Interested in profile improvement
I'd like to join in the monthly Sourcerers challenge - preferably working on UK profiles as I have a good knowledge of UK BMD Indexes, UK census and access to parish registers, electoral registers and many other sources in Record Offices close to me.
I would like take Part in the Saturday Sourcing Sprints, but as I am in the UK, we will be a bit "out of synch"
Descended from the Spickett family of kent, England
I have DNA matches going back to the same Tree family of Marden, Kent, England
I live in the UK and am interested in most Counties of England. Specialising in Kent, Sussex & Essex
interested in sourcing LNAB for UK unknowns

DNA Tested
Michelle Wilkes's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Michelle or other carriers of her ancestors' mitochondrial DNA. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Michelle:

Hi Michelle

I’m the new Project Coordinator for the England Project. I am contacting you, as there have been some recent changes to the project which we are keen to bring to your attention. Please look at the England Project page for more information on the changes and the ways members are able to actively contribute moving forward. Once you have considered how you would like to participate, please contact either myself or Susie to let us know. We can then list your involvement, help you join the Google group forum for England, and give you any other help you may need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you do not wish to be a part of the England Project for the time being. We really hope you will join the team! Gillian

Hi Michelle,

Congratulations on being Pre-1700 certified! Now it's time to pick a project that best fits the pre-1700 profiles you'll be working on.

Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Do you have some historically-significant ancestors? Look at the list of active projects to see if one fits your needs.

Once you find a project that interests you, visit their project page for more information and to find out how to join. You can also use the Following link to add the project tag to your profile, and you'll be kept up to date on any activity that occurs for that project.

Can't find what you're looking for? Let me know, and I can make some suggestions! :-)

I'm sorry we missed you... please do join us in the future. We do it every weekend.

You can still go there and see how it went. It's ok to comment or answer as well. Many people are still lingering in conversations started days ago. Such fun!

Some people follow the tag "weekend_chat" so that they never miss out.
