Goal

Shropshire, also called Salop, is a county in the West Midlands region of England, bordering Wales to the west, Cheshire to the north, Staffordshire to the east, and Worcestershire and Herefordshire to the south. The River Severn divides the county.

The goal of the Shropshire Team is to make the Shropshire profiles the best that they can be, to be the point of reference and research.

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.

Topics

In order to achieve our goal, there are a number of things we are currently working on:

What to do

We handle the responsibility of improving the profiles of people from Shropshire along with several other tasks, which include:

  • Oversight of the Shropshire Category Page to ensure that our information is up to date and is consistent with the other England county pages.
    • This also includes the revision of our categories, adding correct categories and deleting incorrect or unnecessary categories as needed.
    • Monitor the The Shropshire Category Page to ensure that all profiles are placed into the most accurate sub-category possible and not into any of the parent categories.
  • Continual updating of the maintenance templates on Shropshire profiles such as {{Unsourced|Shropshire}} and {{Estimated Date}}.
  • Focusing on the improvement of Shropshire profiles including sourcing, connecting, merging duplicates, correcting database errors, and writing biographies.
    • Creating profiles for prominent or notable Shropshire-based individuals and connecting them to our global trees.
    • Researching and updating profiles on WikiTree which are relevant to prominent Shropshire families.
  • Discuss and collaborate together, including maintaining the free space Shropshire Research Resources page, adding and updating links as needed.

Communication and Collaboration

If you want to work together, go for it, amazing profiles can be sourced and written as a team! You can communicate with everyone by posting to this page, joining us on discord, through the Google groups: England Project, or by messaging individual members.

Keep in mind that we will largely be working on profiles that are managed by other people—always endeavour to discuss any major changes you may wish to make to a profile with the profile manager/s involved.

Hi Team!

From saturday, 1 February, we will be running a month-long "Go Green" challenge.

This will be region vs. region, rather than counties, the winner will be the region with the largest drop in total numbers (sourcing + connecting + suggestions).

All the contributing county team members within the winning region will be given a sticker for their profiles :)

So if you fancy sourcing, connecting or correcting for our West Midlands region comment below!

If you have any questions just ask :)

ps you can get to the unsourced, unconnected and suggestion for the West Midlands region by visiting England Regional and County Statistics Page, West Midlands Region clicking on the numbers which are links in the table will take you to the automated lists. Good Luck West Midlands!!

Hi Shropshire Team!

The weekly Statistics table has been updated. Unsourced, unconnected and unknowns are all down from last week, so thank you to everyone who has been working on the profiles.

More details are in the "Shropshire Team monthly update" email, which I have just sent out, so if you don't get your email check your spam or junk folder. I am so pleased with the work we have been doing in Shropshire, here's to a fantastic 2020!

Hi Team,

The weekly statistics table has been updated. There's a slight increase of 2 unsourced profiles, an increase of 27 unconnected to the main tree and a slight decrease of 3 database suggestions for Shropshire based profiles compared to last week.

If you'd like to work on the figures, you can click the links in the table to be taken to the relevant automated list.

If you'd like to see the figures for the whole of England and broken down by region and county the new England, Regional and county statistics page has all the figures with clickable links.

As always a BIG Thank You to all who have helped with sourcing, connecting and correcting!

Let's try to get those figures down before the end of the Year!

Following last weekends 'Source A Thon' the figures for unsourced Shropshire profiles are as follows:

Shropshire previous week: 1232, This week: 611= 621 profiles sourced!

Let's keep up the good work!

I've been going over the orphaned Shropshire Profiles and Categorising them, so there will be an increase of unsourced Shropshire profiles next week. There's also a lot more profiles in the 'Needs Gedcom cleanup' category. It would be wonderful to get those profiles cleaned up and sourced.
