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
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
Looking forward to another source-a-thon
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

Thank you Michelle for the reply re DNA.

Would be great to find Roberts Father as you said being a royal or not at least can solve that question. I have had 2 Aunts done but they were not unfortunately not the oldest of his grandchildren both the youngest. Thank you for replying you have given me encouragement to keep looking.

Hi Michelle,

I am the new Project Coordinator for the Profile Improvement part of the England Project. I just wanted to say “Hello” and let you know that you can contact me if there is anything that I can help you with. I live in Yorkshire, have been interested in family history for over 20 years, and have been on Wikitree since February 2017. I have become addicted to it and need a fix of sourcing, error correcting or bio writing every day so that I don’t get withdrawal symptoms. Thank you for all the work you do for the Project. I am looking forward to working with you.

Regards Joan

Please feel free to post your thoughts in our Google Group, or you can send me a PM, either will be great.
