Welcome to the Counties Team

The Counties Team is part of the England Project

Project Coordinator: Lizzie Griffiths


The goal of the Counties Team is to organise ourselves into groups that will focus on profiles of people born in a particular region of England. These regions are then divided into individual county teams. Ultimately we want to see an increase in profiles from that county, and to see the standard of those profiles rise. We do this through maintenance categories, one place studies, notable profiles and sub-projects, and are always open to new ideas. Please contact the team leader if you would like to join the England Project and one of these teams.

Team Leaders

  • Help set short-term and long-term goals for their team in all areas
  • Welcome new team members in and introduce them to the team
  • Regularly communicate, coordinate and collaborate with the team
  • Support the team to ensure they have everything they need

Team Members

Team members should join the rest of their county team in aiming to make all profiles for their county the best that they can be. Topics selected for focusing upon by the County Team are intended to help achieve profile excellence, so we hope that team members will work on those as well as suggesting new topics for the team where appropriate. But, we accept that sometimes team members, although sharing a special interest in the county, will be busy producing excellent work on personal projects and so won't always have time to help with their County Team's topics. Team members should share knowledge and skills, supporting each other and contributing to shared County Team Resources and Categorisation.

Looking for Smart family from Hail Weston, Huntingdonshire, England. My ancestors sought a new life and sailed to Sydney, Australia. I guess I would not be here typing this message had they not.

As I am Australian (don't involve me in any cricket discussions :)) so have no idea about which part of England the Huntingdonshire area is located. Midlands .. I don't know.... I have high hopes that I will find the answers to many of my questions here. btw My father's tree started in Bromsgrove; and my mother's probably in Spitalfields, London, about 1590. Please help... :( Carolyn Dominish Giles-3244

Hi Amy,

I’ve started looking at some suggestions on the Cheshire and Merseyside Page. Quick question, if I either correct or advise PM to correct the Merseyside Suggestions should I then change Merseyside to either Lancashire or Cheshire? Merseyside didn’t exist until 1974. I don’t want to move suggestions, especially to another County I.e. Lancashire but I also don’t think that Merseyside should be cited on profiles pre 1974? Lizzie

Amy, There is a wrong link on one member of the Northumberland team. The link for Bree takes us to a lady born in 1885.
