Connection

Neil was born in 1970 in Scarborough in Yorkshire[1]. He was told that he was born in Yorkshire, so that he could play for Yorkshire Cricket Club when he was older. Those were the days when you had to have been born in the county to play cricket for the county (although to this day, he has never shown aptitude or interest in cricket!). The reality was that his parents, Bill and Celia had stopped in Scarborough for the Winter, after following Bill round the country for his job, as he inspected the quality welding of the national trunk gas mains being installed at this time. This meant the family travelling in a caravan for a few years, inspecting all over the UK.

In 1974, Neil's younger brother Ian arrived, so Bill and Celia put down roots in Eaglescliffe, near Stockton-upon-Tees. Bill at this time was working in Oil and Gas industry, spending time working in the North Sea Oil fields, again as an inspector of newly commissioned oil and gas platforms.

When Neil was around eight, the family moved to Sunderland, nearer to Bill's family.

Hi Neil,

I'd like to share our end-of-year 2023 Newsletter. You can read it here: England Project Newsletters. We hope you enjoy reading about what we have achieved in 2023!

Hi Neil

We are delighted to announce a new Profile Improvements Team namely the England Tangled Families Team which will be formed by merging the Arborists, Gedcoms and Unknown Teams,

As we know tangled families are created from old GEDCOM’s which cover many generations resulting in the need to merge profiles and having to disconnect others together with finding unknown spouses and family members.

The merging of the existing three teams into one exciting new team will hopefully reduce duplications and definitely will increase collaboration between you our experienced and dedicated members.

Team Leader for the England Tangled Families Team will be Fran Weidman who has agreed to manage the team bringing her excellent knowledge and experience from creating and managing the Unknowns Team together with Fran’s five year membership of the England Project.

Currently as a member of one or more of the named teams we are asking you to join our new amalgamated Tangled Families Team and letting us know by contacting Joan Williams or Malc Rowlands through Discord Messaging, England Project Google Group or Private WT Message if you want to join our new team.

Kind regards

Joan and Malc

Hi Neil, following the publication of the article about Cuthbert Sharp(e) and Brass Crosby in the Cleveland & Teesside Local History journal, I have extended their profiles, but would like some help in connecting the various Brass/Barass lines. ( Just ran out of steam, and currently no access to Surtees books etc)

Is this something the County Durham team could help with please? I added a few suggested Notables to the team pages.

Hi Neil,

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,

Lizzie, Amy, Joan

England Project Leaders

Hi Lizzie -

Thanks for checking in. I have had a lot on with work recently, so not had a chance to do much on WT tree lately, but am still interested in staying on the project.

Hi,

The Global Cemeteries Project is currently undergoing our member check-in and wanted to verify that you are still active and interested in being a member of the project. Are you currently assigned to or working with one of our Cemetery Teams? If not, is there a particular Team or area you are interested in participating with? I would be delighted to help you get setup in one or more of our collaborative teams!

We use Google Groups for internal project collaboration, so if you are not yet setup for access feel free to submit a join request and we will get that approved as quick as possible. We also ask that members check their followed tags to make sure you are following the correct project tag (CEMETERIES) so you don't miss any discussions in G2G.

Last, but not least, we would like to thank you for all of your contributions to WikiTree and let you know that any ideas or suggestions for improvement you may have for the Global Cemeteries Project would greatly appreciated!

I look forward to hearing form you soon!

Hi Steve - I am still interested in being part of the project, but find it difficult to find the time to get round all of my interests on WikiTree, never mind my own tree!

I understand if you need to take me off the project, but am willing to help if anyone needs help with cemeteries in County Durham or Leceistershire in England.
