Who do I contact about Mayflower Descendents?

+5 votes
Wikitree has four generations of a line of mayflower descendents; John Alden-63, Ruth Alden-1, Mary Bass-8 and William Copeland-955.  Unfortunately this last profile is little changed from when it was a GED import.  And it has none of his children and a wrong death date (actually his father's death date) which is before he was married.  Then it was prosed for a merge and the merge rejected.  After which it was again proposed and accepted.  Finally someone different from all the others apparently adopted it  Anyway, I don't see anything in the profile making it part of a project.  I know I can change it as I like, but I'd like to see if I can get some help in doing it correctly.  I've had the pre-1700 badge practically since I joined, but haven't used it much if at all.  So I don't want to screw things up on the first important line I've worked on.Anyway I'm off to send a private message to the current PM and then wait for responses here and from the PM.

It looks like the PM is active, so I would think you might receive some assistance from him. As Anne B. says, go for it, just be sure to cite your sources for any & all changes you make.

William doesn't fall into the guidelines for Mayflower project, which only extends to grandchildren, not great grandchildren. There is nothing on the profile of any value. So work on William. Find sources. Add a bio with inline citations. If you find things you want to add to his parents profiles (esp. his mothers) it's ok to go ahead and add them to the profiles, just make sure you add a source to whatever you add to the profile. If you have questions along the way, feel free to ask me or here in the G2G.

I cleaned up the many merges and gedcom leftovers for William's mother
