And this project -
Shropshire Family Heads
Please only add the earliest head of the family to the list of Shropshire Families on Geni below and link their profiles to the project. These should be male! Adding everyone with a Shropshire birthplace to the project would cause the project to be a little cluttered, so please restrict this to the earliest head of family!
How to add a link is explained in the attached document - Adding links to Geni profiles in projects.
