Welcome to the England Barn Raising page! A Wiki barn raising is a short, focused community effort to create or revise content relating to a single topic, such as "Getting Started with Genealogical Research in England." The following tasks need to be accomplished during the England Barn Raising in February 2009. Please volunteer to complete one or more tasks by adding your name to this list. Before you can add your name to the list below, you must [http://fch.ldschurch.org/FSWiki/Register/Register8.html <u>register.</u>]&nbsp;After you have registered:

#While on this page, with the tasks listed, click the "Edit" option located in the page options box to the right. This will open the "Editing" window.<br>

Articles about [[England]] and England research topics. Ideally a child WikiProject could be set-up for each English County which would focus on articles for county level resources and the parishes within each county. Until these are created these are within the scope of this project. Some articles cover both England and Wales and so would also fall within the scope of [[FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Wales|WikiProject Wales]].

Potentially, a large number of volunteers in the community may feel unqualified to write a 'how to' article on a subject of interest, but they are available to do simple tasks that support the writing of articles. This is the place to list and/or volunteer for those tasks!&nbsp; If you're a writer, here's where you can get some help. If you're a volunteer or community member, here's where you can give some!

Double Bus England.jpg
Welcome to the WikiProject England page! A focused community effort to create or revise content relating to a single topic.

Scope

Articles about England and England research topics. Ideally a child WikiProject could be set-up for each English County which would focus on articles for county level resources and the parishes within each county. Until these are created these are within the scope of this project. Some articles cover both England and Wales and so would also fall within the scope of WikiProject Wales.
