Project Logo
Chris has been a member of the England Project for over 1,000 days.

I live in the south-east of England and I have been researching my (and my wife's) family tree since 2013. I do research mainly in Ancestry and FamilySearch but use WikiTree as a helpful publication location.

I am also a fan of the Categorization feature in WikiTree and do my best to add relevant (existing) profiles to the Category Structure, around the main tree work I am doing. (I am a member of the Categorization Project).

I've also been trying to set up and link appropriate place categories within the England project connected with my family members - mainly in the South-East. I am a project helper for Surrey, Hampshire, and Middlesex, where I focus on Categories and Resources.

I am a member of the England Project Categories Team.

I'm the Project Leader for the following One Name Studies in WIkiTree and I am more than happy to share these with anyone who is interested:

DNA Ethnicity

As of Apr 2023 Ancestry's estimate is
+ 80% England, Wales, and North-Western Europe (as expected)
- highlighted - South-East England, in particular - Surrey and Sussex
+ 6% Germanic Europe (no clues here)
+ 6% Wales (links on both sides)</br> + 4% Norway (my Y-DNA is Swedish?)
+ 4% Scotland (no clues here either)

My admixture using Eurogenes K-13 on Gedmatch (Kit BW4857082) as of Dec 2021 gives:
North_Atlantic - 45.75%
Baltic - 24.22%
West_Med - 15.02%
West_Asian - 6.92%
East_Med - 3.20%
Red_Sea - 1.34%
South_Asian - 1.21%
Amerindian - 1.19%
Siberian - 1.00%
Oceanian - 0.16%
(The last three combined (2.35%) are apparently consistent with a possible North American slave ancestor being brought to England in the 18th century - there were many apparently. 2 alleles are identified - rs17244709AG and rs17097300AG).

Y-DNA

I have not taken a specific Y-DNA, test but putting my Ancestry results through both the Morley predictor and cladefinder.com gives me a Haplogroup of I1-Z138 (or I-Z138). Apparently this originated from South-Western Sweden (Scania/Skane) around 2600 BC - after I1 which originatied in Denmark. (I should add that although my family name is Goff, my paternal grandfather was a Jones - I expect the Y-DNA haplogroup to be his).

Mary's maiden name was Chamberlain, as per the sources on her profile

Could you please amend her Last Name at Birth or add me to her Trusted List so I can make the change myself.

Thanks Steve

Hi Chris,

The United Kingdom Project has not been active since 2018 and we are now completely closing it down. We are removing all UK project badges. If you still have an interest in the UK and have not already joined another project, then you will need to join the England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales Project by answering one or more of their G2G posts. If your interest is in the British Isles and British Crown Dependencies and Overseas Territories, then please contact me directly.

Regards Joan

Hi Chris

I am a Goff by marriage, so have various Goff profiles in my extended tree, plus I happen to be researching a Goffe for my OT2 (proving very challenging) so would like to join please

Hi Chris,

It's that time of the year again: check-in time! As England Project Leaders, we like to check in with you every six months or so to see how things are progressing. Back in May, we didn't ask for a response due to the rapid emergence of Covid-19 because we understood that people's lives were changing rapidly. While we are still living in a Covid world, we do need to hear back from you this time around

First of all, how are you doing? What are you currently working on? Are you happy with the team(s) you're in, or would you like to change things up?

Secondly, we're looking for some feedback on the Google Group and our Discord server. Do you use either or both of these? If you don't use either, why not? Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve participation and collaboration, either generally or for you personally?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Amy, Joan & Lizzie.

Amy, etc

I'm still happy to be a part of the England project. I'm still working mainly on Categories and Resources but I will admit to not being too active recently. (I've been busy elsewhere). No need on my part to change anything.

I do look at the Google Group regularly and find it useful in keeping up with what's been going on. Discord, on the other hand was something I didn't really get on with. It seemed to work best in 'real-time' rather than to catch-up on things, and that is not really how I work with WikiTree. I haven't been on it for some time.

For me there's no need to change anything - just keep up the good work! Chris

Hi Chris,

I'm pleased to hear it! In terms of Discord, the real-time quality is what I like about it, but we understand that it isn't for everyone. *If* any important decision is made on Discord (which is rare, in fairness), it will always be equally transmitted to the Google Group, so you won't miss anything :)

Feel free to get in contact in the future if you need anything!

Regards, Amy

Hi Chris,

Thank you so much for finding and adding Sara Ellen Cavel's death record to her profile. I'd never been able to find it. I was a little gutted to learn she'd only lived five months, perhaps because we lost a newborn daughter the deaths of these wee ones always stir up strong emotions in me. I see you've done a LOT of work on the Cavels in the past day. Most appreciated! Later in the day, when I have time I'll go through them all and see what goodies you have added. :D

Hello Chris

Your England Leaders are completing the six monthly check in with all team members. Thank you for your work on English Profiles and your work in the Categorisation team and three (!) county teams.

These are unprecedented and difficult times, and we understand as Project Leaders that your situation may have changed somewhat in the last few months. What we are all able to/ wish to contribute on Wikitree has changed. Please let me know if you are happy with your current role and team choice, or if you wish to do something additional or different. Thank you again on behalf of all the Project Leaders for everything you do.

Hello Chris,

Just a quick note to introduce myself as your new Team leader for Greater London and Middlesex. I have been a Wikitree member for over two years but have been tracing my tree for over 30 years and many lines are from Middlesex and go back pre-1500. I look forward to working with you all to try and reduce the unsourced and unconnected and find more resources. Please don't hesitate to ask for assistance, I'll always try and help. Thank you for your help so far. Valerie Crowley. Team Leader

Hi Chris,

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 Member for Surrey, Middlesex, Hampshire/IOW and Categories. 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 Chris,

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.

Many thanks,

Susie

On behalf of the Categorization Project Leaders, we are doing a six-month check-in with members. Please let me know if you are still active, and if so, in which ways you have contributed to the project, or a sub-project, within the last two months.

All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your roots.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
