Is there a project that covers these pre-1700 people? Stieff, Stief, or Steeves

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

1.) Geographical region and time period:  Münsingen, Württemberg, Germany and nearby.

2.) Some example names and dates: Johann Heinrich Stieff (c. 1650-1699), Johann Heinrich Stieff (1718-c. 1779 in Canada) Augustin Steiff (c. 1600-1675), Anna Barbara Worner (1683-1746), Michael Stahlecker (c. 1640-after 1704), Agnes Werner (1682-1753), Regina Stahlecker (1719-c. 1797 in Canada). 

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:   The Steeves House Museum and Genealogy Centre. Various books on the Steeves of New Brunswick, Canada (settlers originally from Münsingen via Philadelphia).

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?

Hi Wayne:

Thanks for your offer. We actually have an active community with the Steiff family including the pre-1700 roots in Germany and I've added significantly to the profile with everyone's input. Thanks for your interest.

Heinrich and his wife are Palatine Migrants. I will add them to the Palatine Migration Project.
