The goal of the England Project is to make every single English profile the very best it can be. It is our desire to leave a lasting legacy of work for future generations and current researchers that can facilitate their quest for family history, and bring them one step closer to discovering the myriad of people it has taken for them to draw breath.

Orphans Team

On joining the England Project, you start out in the Orphans Team. This is a sub-team of the Profile Improvements Team in which you adopt an orphaned English profile, starting with a relatively recent one, and working back through various historical periods, learning the ropes as you go. With over 80k orphaned English profiles this is a great way to begin contributing to the project, and give us a chance to get to know each other and what else you might like to do further down the line. The leader of this team is Ros Haywood.

Other ways to get involved in the England Project

Once you have worked on the Orphan Team for a while, you'll have the opportunity to contribute to the project in other ways. These include:

  • Counties Team
