I have information to contribute to the profile of Samuel Haight. This is what I can add:

These are the sources I am using:

 New York, Wills and Probate Records, 1659-1999

Name: Samuel Haight
Probate Date: 21 Oct 1712
Probate Place: New York, New York, USA
Inferred Death Year: Abt 1712
Inferred Death Place: New York, USA
Item Description: Wills, Vol 008, 1710-1716
{{Ancestry Record | 8800 | 5094012}}

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

Looks like the family earlier could be part of the Puritan Great Migration project but this would be after that date wise so I do not think it falls into the project
Check out the template "Ancestry Record" for linking to records on Ancestry like the one you cite here:

Wills are an excellent source. Please feel free to update pre-1700 profiles that need the information your adding. I recommend reading profiles first to see that what your adding adds value to the existing biography. The will will definitely add value.
