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!  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!

Revision as of 14:31, 24 August 2011

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.
