England Orphan Team
Nic Donnelly has completed the England Project's Orphan Trail.

Since completing the England Project's Orphan Trail, I participate in the project in a number of ways.

Project Coordinator - England Counties

I co-coordinate the Counties Team within the England Project, alongside Elizabeth Viney.

Amongst other things, this involves:

  • Setting priorities and long term goals for the Counties Team
  • Supporting Regional Coordinators and individual county Team Leaders
  • Maintaining England Counties webpages

Regional Coordinator - Northern England

I support the team leaders and teams working in the counties of Northern England:

Team Leader - Cheshire and Merseyside

I lead a team which focuses on profiles of people connected with Cheshire and Merseyside. This work includes sourcing, error correction, writing biographies. I also assist with research queries in the forums relating to Cheshire.

England Managed Profiles Team

I help look after notable or contentious profiles on behalf of the England Project, through my membership of the Managed Profiles Team. My particular interest is in sixteenth and and seventeenth century profiles.

England Orphaned Profiles Team

England Orphan Trailblazer
Nic Donnelly is an England Orphan Trailblazer

I participate in the Orphaned Profiles Team as a trailblazer, helping people who are new to the England Project get familiar with the work of the project, Wikitree processes and/or English genealogy.

New Zealand Profile Improvement Team

I'm a member of the New Zealand Project's Profile Improvement Team, where I focus on adding sources to profiles.

DNA Tested
Nic Donnelly's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Nic or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA. Y-chromosome DNA test-takers in his direct paternal line on WikiTree:
  • Nic Donnelly: Family Tree DNA Y-DNA Test 111 markers, haplogroup R-Y106312, FTDNA kit #IN21374, MitoYDNA ID T12655 [compare]
Mitochondrial DNA test-takers in the direct maternal line:
  • Nic Donnelly: Family Tree DNA mtDNA Test Full Sequence, haplogroup J1c4, FTDNA kit #IN21374, MitoYDNA ID T12656 [compare]
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Nic:

Hi Nic,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Leader for Cheshire and TM for Managed Profiles. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current teams and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Hi Nic, thanks for your post on Robert Hyde. I've added some sources to the page which support the information provided on your post and added a second post to the pms. Excellent work.

Hi Nic,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Based on your tag comments the Irish Roots Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to review other possibilities. Read the goals and tasks of the projects and join those which are a good fit.

Have questions? Ask in the comments section of my profile.
