I agree

My experience is that once we have a working contact with British families,
there goals and problems are very similar to those people face in America.

I think the bigger problem is breaking down the initial wall of
misunderstandings.

It might help many projects to try to get a co-admin specialized in this. I
think it helps in my case that as an Australian my ancestry is more recently
in England and crossing over with the families I contact. Many American
genealogists have very deep roots in the US, and so shared experiences in
genealogy are not as immediately evident. I ended up doing the opposite to
what I suggest and asking for America-specialised co-admins.

Best Regards
Andrew

I think they would benefit as much from DNA
studies as I would.
