I have information to contribute to the profile of Rebeckah (Beal) Shaw. This is what I can add:

  • Copy of original handwritten source downloaded from Ancestry.com

These are the sources I am using:

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

Since there is currently not much of anything in the profile, any relevant, reliable sources you add would be an improvement. If you are making changes/additions to a profile that already has a fully developed, sourced narrative bio, it is important to move cautiously, make sure the sources/information you add are an improvement, and try to be stylistically consistent. But that's not so important in the case of an undeveloped profile.
