Is there a project that covers these pre-1700 people?

+3 votes

I am only trying to add my ancestors Ephraim Hunt as father or William Hunt and Enoch Hunt as grandfather to William Hunt to my current family tree and am unable as they are both pre 1700.

Here are the sources I am using:

Personal family tree. Can also document on geni family tree and numerous online sources. 

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

Hi Mark,

Welcome to WikiTree!

Here's a link to the Pre-1700 Profiles help page. Coordination with any associated projects and reliable sources are required for creating/modifying pre-1700 profiles.

If you can add geographic location information to your G2G post, it will likely be helpful for determining which project(s) may apply for the pre-1700 profile(s) in question. Also family trees are not considered adequate sources for pre-1700 profiles.

It's also important to ensure that a profile doesn't already exist for an individual before creating a profile. This is especially true of pre-1700 profiles as the ancestor is likely to have many descendants and may already exist in WikiTree.

Are you referring to this profile - as you gave no dates?

Also your ''sources I'm using'' just brings one to a help page on sources and does not indicate any specific sources that you might be referring to.
