I can add a father to the profile of Johann Jacob Altman. This is who I can add:Johannes Altman 1650-1721

These are the sources I am using:  Hans Wilhelm Altman's descendants, Ancestry.com,which is using some type of world wide family tree that I cannot verify.  

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!  I would like to dig into this line further.  That tree has specific dates and information but I do not know where it comes from or how to verify it.  Help?  Thanks.

Hi Russell!  Glad to have you aboard.

For WikiTree, we don't use another site's trees as sources. If there are sources you can see on that Ancestry tree, check them out and see if they confirm the relationship before adding a parent.

Church records from Herbitzheim Alsace France if you want the proof but to me it seems you are correct back to 1630 Hans Wilhelm Altman
