County pages exist for England's counties, but are titled differently than the red links were set up to show.  JamesAnderson 02:08, 28 January 2009 (UTC)

Barbara Baker and I are working to move the county page content over to the new naming structure. The old pages were portal pages, and we are no longer using portals. Alanm 18:15, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

Can someone make an authoritative statement on the use of portals? bromaelor 18:02, 12 February 2009 (UTC)


Has the England Barn Raising created a localities section where the country is divided into smaller geographic regions for contributing content? If so, how is it accessed, or where would I find this category.

Thanks for the question, simply type in the locality that you want to look for on the search box on the upper right of any page, and it will take you to the list of links that feature that locality somewhere on the page.  There will be article titles that will be for localities as well and those titles will show up in the results.

Several of the tasks involve updates to the England Portal. This is a pointless exercise as the portals are all due to disappear??? bromaelor 16:11, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Census articles - Family History Library Catolog entries

Firstly, I know this talk page is about the England articles, but I have a query that relates to across all English counties and I thought this might be the best place to raise it. If there is a better place, please feel free to move my question.

I have noticed that many of the English county census articles, for example Devon Census list each parish within the county linked to the Family History Library Catolog entry for that parish. My question is why these articles are named county Census? In my opinion they better fit the description of county Parish, but I know that the county Parish pages are filled with redlinks for requested articles for each parish.

Perhaps these articles should be named county Family History Library Catolog? Whatever the decision, I think it would be helpful if the notes column of the task table had a brief outline of what content is expected to be put into each article. --Steve 20:08, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Proposed move to WikiProject England

I proposed that this article be moved to FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject England. At the moment that page redirects back to this article, but if no one objects I will make this change. Also child projects for each English county can be created following the same naming convention, ie. FamilySearch Wiki:WikiProject Dorset etc. --Steve 16:54, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

I have now moved this article to the FamilySearch Wiki namespace and renamed it as WikiProject England. More work needs to be given to updating the tasks to be done and to explain the scope of the project. --Steve 18:28, 25 March 2011 (UTC)
