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.

It's been a year since the England Project was re-ignited. Thank you for being part of this exciting journey!
We really appreciate all your contributions and hard work :)
We would love some feedback from you please. :)
Are you happy contributing with the team you are on, or would you like a change, or even add to another team?
If you are not already on a team, which one would you like to be on?
If you are not sure what is available, just ask, we are here to help :)
Are you still happy contributing to the England Project?
Please PM me through my profile and let me know how you are doing :)

As Susie mentioned in our newsletter, one of us would check in to see how you are doing, so here I am :)
Firstly on behalf of us all, I would like to say a big thank you for all the hard work you are putting into the Project. Your work with Greater Manchester is greatly appreciated. We would love your feedback and input on what you would like to see happening within the project as we move forward.
Do you have anything special you would like to see in the project, or have ideas for things we can add into the project?
Please feel free to post your thoughts in our Google Group, or you can send me a PM, either will be great.

Thank you for touching base. I've been told by an Irish Magill that the Magill families in County Down were Scotch Presbyterians who settled there in the 1600s as part of the Plantations of Ulster. The Magills around the Barony of Glenarm in Antrim were Gallowglass (foreign mercenary soldiers) from Scotland and came over in the 1300s and are Catholic. There are also Magills in Ardara, Donegal that came from Glenarm around 1650. I hope this helps.

I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,

I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Also noticed you made 305 contributions to Wikitree, thank you! Here at WikiTree we like to have our members involved with others; collaboration is key!
Why don't you also stop by the One Name Studies project, to see if there's already a name study for (surname) going on? The current leaders for that are Doug Lockwood and Alison Andrus. They would be happy to get you started.
Dorothy, Volunteer Coordinator
