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

1.) Geographical region and time period:   [Your answer here.]

2.) Some example names and dates:   [Your answer here.]

3.) Source(s) for my information on them:   [Your answer here.]

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 Marilyn, It is probably better to edit your original question rather than putting your question into an answer, otherwise, many may miss the question details hidden down here in the answer section.  For example, I missed it when I first reviewed your question and was waiting for an edit to the question before responding.

Hi Marilyn,

We have the Virginia Project for work on Virginia profiles (pre or post 1700), please join us if you have an interest in Virginia:

Your suggested source, John Hollman, appears to be a tertiary source.  Also, the link you gave, http://angelfire.com/ky2/Geneology/JOB_CURTIS-OF-VA.HTML does not work for me.  Ideally we use primary and secondary sources on Wikitree as tertiary sources are often suspect due to being prone to many errors.  You may find some better sources by contacting John Hollman, since he may cite materials he used.

Read more on our page for sourcing Virginia profiles here:

You may also wish to tag your question with England since Jonathan Curtis was born in England, and get help from the England project.

You need not contact us again for pre-1700 Virginia profiles unless you have questions or need help. 

I'm happy to provide assistance as you may request in the future for Virginia, as this is my area of some expertise.  I'm also pretty knowledgeable about DNA if you have questions there too.

-William
