Advice before editing this pre-1700 Harwood profile?

I have information to contribute to the profile of John Harwood. This is what I can add:

  • Christening of John Harwood in year of birth.

These are the sources I am using:

  • "England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975", database, FamilySearch (https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:J9WS-DHD : 21 March 2020), John Harwood, 1668.

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

The profile states that John Harwood was born 1668 in Padbury, Buckinghamshire. Your baptismal record is for a John Harwood baptised 1668 in Rochester, Kent, about 75 miles away. What leads you to believe that these are the same person?
