I joined the United Kingdom Project, but it is no longer, how do I join the Scotland Project ?

I have recently found out that my family is linked to King Robert the Bruce, through his first born daughter Princess Marjorie Bruce of Scotland and I know not where this can be verified, when I check on Wikitree there are so many Robert the Bruce and some of his descendants on Wikitree look like duplicates. I was under the impression that no duplicates were allowed. As I am not pre 1500 but I am for 1700 certified and there are some that I think need to be merged, who looks after this?

Hi Norma,   Thanks for your interest in the Scotland Project.   I'll contact you direct to take this forward.

Here's the profile for Marjory https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bruce-124   I tried the connection finder but it did not link with your good self even the "search 30 generation."   It's working OK for me - Marjorie is my 21st GGM.   There may be a link missing in your line to Marjory.    I'll see if I can help when I contact you about the project.

Hi Maria, thank you. It was on Family search after I put in my 4th great grandparents Robert Yuill & Margaret Purdon that all sorts of lines appeared from Purdon linking me back to so many people. Checking the surnames from Purdon it goes to Howie, then Sandilands through Stewarts on the male side. 19 great grandparents back to Marjorie.

I normally check on Scotlands people for the birth and marriages but that only goes back to 1513 and I have no idea from there on back.
