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

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

1.) Geographical region and time period:   [Virginia, 1690.]

2.) Some example names and dates:   [Mourning UNKNOWN, 1690-1765.]

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:   [son-in-law's family genealogy.]

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?

I think there is a mix-up with the Mournings. Working on figuring it out...

You could look into the U. S. Southern Colonies Project.  It covers, in part, Virginia up until 1788, so I think your ancestor would fit there:

Thanks. I'll do that. I've had some trouble figuring out what being part of a project means. Is there a way to contact the manager or something?
