I want to help contribute to the deep genealogy on our shared tree.

1.) Geographical region and time period:   [Chester County, PA 1718 -1774.]

2.) Some example names and dates:   [Robert Thornton.]

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:   [Futhey and Cope History of Chester County, Bradford Quaker Meeting Disapproval of Robert Thornton.]

Before I get started adding and changing profiles, can you tell me if there is a WikiTree project that would cover these people? If so, how do I get in touch with the project members to coordinate and collaborate on the profiles?

First, I loved how you wrote up his bio.  Very interesting to read.

Second, I don't think he falls under any project at this time.  It seems his wife and son-in-law could be under the Quaker Project:

Beth,

Are you looking for Wikitree profiles for people who might have lived in Chester County, PA between 1718 and 1774 that could use additional sources?

If so, I do have an ancestor who was in that area at the right time. I'm not sure if he and his family belonged to the Methodist Episcopal Church or not.  Also, I'm not the manager, but it is an open profile, and I'll bet all of us would love it if more sources could be found.  Pennsylvania sources have been extremely difficult for me to locate, so it definitely could more sources. https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Harlan-298  

I did take a look at the profile for Robert Thornton, and it looks like a very nice job!
