Welcome to the England Project Gedcom Team

Team Leaders: Joan Whitaker |Wendy Sullivan

The Gedcom Team will be focusing primarily on the old Gedcoms that were added in the early days of Wikitree and have mostly been abandoned or just forgotten about, working towards the more recent Gedcoms that just need some TLC.

Many of these Gedcoms will contain England profiles that need varying degrees of attention. Some may turn out to be a tangled family, most will probably be unsourced, some may be unconnected. You may find a heap of duplicates associated with the various profiles, a tiny minority will need no work at all.

Our Goals

The goals of the Gedcom Team are to check each England profile and make it the best it can be. This will involve sourcing, clearing any suggestions, bio writing, connecting, finding names for the Unknowns and untangling the problem profiles and merging where necessary. In essence doing all that you can or feel able to do for each profile you choose to work on. Sourcing a birth or baptism record can be challenging, but it is a huge find, so please make extra effort to locate one or the other :)

You may not want to do all of these steps and some are best left to the Arborist teams, but everything you can add to a profile is great and collaboration on profiles is encouraged. What one person cannot find, another may find in an obscure place. The key words for this team are Collaboration, Team Work, Accuracy, Enjoyment and last but not least Fun.

How will this work

At this moment we are planning on having 2 FSP's one with a list of profiles currently being available to work on which can be accessed here and the other to hold profiles that are awaiting merges/TL requests etc that need following up on, which is here.

The table will contain a number of profiles that are England orientated probably around 50 at any one time. You can pick whichever you wish and work on that profile. There will be columns to add comments and other aspects so we all know what is needed for that profile and can assist if necessary. You do NOT need to do everything for that profile. Some of us love to source but hate bio writing for example, so note bio needed so someone can come along and do that side of things :)

The Gedcom itself will be available to view, in case you are working on a profile that has a satellite profile not yet listed and you need to review it. Remember tangled families may cross continents!

Completed Gedcoms will be listed on the Gedcoms with issues page.

For ease of collaboration, and for the camaraderie and fun, being an active Discord member is preferable, but it is not obligatory.

If this team interests you, please drop me a note through my profile, here or send me a message via Discord @Wendy(Ling-1181). If you are not already on Discord and would like to join us (it's free) please let us know and someone will send an invite to you. Looking forward to hearing from you :)
