Please try to calm down. :-) The New Netherland Settlers project aims to help develop the genealogy for early settler families in New Netherland, which include Elias Dorland. There weren't a lot of families in New Netherland in the early years, so there is a potential to develop strong genealogical content for the early settlers there. However, there is an unusual diversity in people's names that can create challenges, and (like everywhere) records for some communities are nonexistent. Those are reasons why the project gets involved. The project is confusing mostly because the names we deal with are so confusing.
Nobody has protected the Elias Dorland profile, and anyway "project protection" doesn't mean control. That profile been identified as one that the project wants to help with.
I've learned a lot from my involvement with the New Netherland Settlers project, and you might have the same experience. Please join us, and please look at the resources on the project pages to learn more about the unique history of New Netherland, and resources that may help you research your ancestors there.
Whether or not you want to get involved, please add the New Netherland Settlers Project Profile to the Trusted List for New Netherland profiles you manage (do this by going to the Privacy tab on the profile page, and putting the email address firstname.lastname@example.org in the box there), then make that profile a Profile Manager. That's the way to hand a profile over to the project group -- but it's best if you stay involved with it, too.
