England Orphan Team
Jean (Wright) Brooks has completed the England Project's Orphan Trail.

I became interested in Family History in 1967 when I was shown a family bible written by my GG grandfather William Salisbury born in 1832. He had been married three times, had ten children and only three survived. I became hooked on the subject, asked many questions and started to build a tree, which was quite small at that time. I remember in the 1980s when my son did a project at school on family history. He took the family tree into school and everyone was amazed at how far back some of the information went (to about 1784 at that time).

Life, marriage, children and work intervened until the internet was invented and gradually I was able to build my tree on line and even find records for those family members I already knew. Now over the last 30 years I have been able to grow the tree almost to infinity. Now there is almost too much information.

Now retired and in my 70s I felt the need to be able to leave all this information for future generations as although my family are interested in what I have discovered they may not have the time or enthusiasm to continue.

WikiTree is ideal for this as I can build the profiles and they can be amended if other family members have information they want to add.

Hi Jean,

On behalf of the England Leaders, I wanted to say a huge thank you for all your contributions towards the project in the past six months as a Team Member for Yorkshire. We've achieved a great deal during this time and we couldn't have done it without you.

Are you happy to stay in your current team and the project as a whole? Are there any other teams you'd like to join? What are we doing well, and what would you like to see us doing differently moving forwards?

Please respond to this message via e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,

Susie, England Project Leader :-)

Since you've been with WikiTree for a few weeks, I wanted to check in and see how you were doing. The New Member How-To's are available for you to look through if you would like.

Hi Jean,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Based on your tags the Huguenot Migration Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to review other possibilities. Read the goals and tasks of the projects and join those which are a good fit.

Have questions? Ask in the comments section of my profile.

Thank you for volunteering, Jean!

You are now a full member of the WikiTree community. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Start with the New Member How-To pages — they are really useful as you add profiles and learn your way around.

When you are ready take a look at projects, there may be a One Name Study for your surnames, or one covering your research location(s).

Take your time, and let me know if you need any help using the site.
