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

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

1.) Geographical region and time period:  Inneses in North East Scotland before 1800.

2.) Some example names and dates:   Robert Innes of Mundole (d. 1729), William Innes of Tombreakachie (d. 1647)

3.) Source(s) for my information on them: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Space:The_Innes_Tree

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?

This would be an excellent One Name Study.  The scope of a one-name study can be as broad or specific as you like, depending on your purpose.  It looks like maybe you are hoping to connect all the Inneses in North East Scotland before 1800 only.  If it were me, I would create a one-name study for Innes by setting up the freespace, then create a sub-project of the Inneses in North East Scotland before 1800.  That way, in the future, either you or someone else could come along and continue the general Innes One Name Study and you could continue on your merry way concentrating on those you are most interested in.

Or, you could look at the Scotland Project and see if there is anything going there for you:

If you decide on the One Name Study, please be aware that the setup has changed:
