Is there a project that covers these pre-1700 people: Christopher Mooring of Surry Co., VA and his father John?

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?

I added a link to the profile I think you're referring to & also some more tags. The NC deed source is great. I like your other source also, but it would be good if you could find primary or secondary sources to confirm the information from it. Cheers, Liz

P.S. If you'd be interested in joining the Virginia Project, see

The join post for North Carolina is

oops - that NC join post isn't... I got it from the project page for North Carolina. I thought there was a separate one for NC. I'll post a link if/when I find it.

You can read up on Southern Colonies to see if it or other sub-projects are of interest to you. Contact information is given for each project and sub-project and you'll want to be pre-1700 certified if not already.

Hi Charles,

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

Read more on our page for sourcing Virginia profiles here (in particular, see the note about state abbreviations not being used on Wikitree):

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.
