I welcome collaboration with WikiTree-ers: Sourcerers, Connectors, Data Doctors, Profile Builders, Categorizers, and all. Communication before editing is NOT necessary on profiles that I manage. Please be bold and edit profiles I manage.
If you prefer to collaborate off-WikiTree, please note: I have no offline records to share. I have adopted profile management of 100s of profiles I am not related to, probably including the one you are thinking about PMing me about.
I am happy to share or hand off management of profiles to other researchers; Make a trusted list request and/or drop a comment on the profile. I am willing to do light source-checking to fix profiles you're interested in. I am unlikely to make requested edits to profiles unless I see sources.
Please note that I am not an Ancestry.com subscriber and can't see sources behind the Ancestry.com subscription paywall.
I remember connecting with my relatives when I was twelve years old compiling genealogy information together.

For my pre-1500 cert application: Was George Marchbanks who wrote a will in 1740 from which many descendants trace their ancestry, the same George Marjoribanks who was transported as a Jacobite Rebel in 1716? direct link to this edit
The profile of Clarke Worsham is primary sources about her family supported by her appearance on the census with her relations and in-laws.
The profile of Rev. John Blair Ward (1857-1928) shows how newspaper accounts can supplement the official records for a more complete picture of the ancestor's life.
Cleaned up merges (DBE 811) on Benjamin Lampree and made linkified inline citations to support the data already present. No additional research, just wikifying the info that was there. direct link to this edit.
Digital Afterlife Instructions : This is my permission that upon my demise, or my constructive abandonment of WikiTree, whichever comes first, for my family firstly, then secondly, the Wikitree staff, to manage the profiles where I act as PM, in any way they see fit, as long as this is in line with the Honour Code and preserves the privacy of living people.

I'll just work the younger lines while you think about it. I'd rather not duplicate the older children.
