As a lifelong genealogist, I've developed "databases" of a pre-1800 information on a number of Maryland families. These databases are in MS Word files. They arrange bits and groups of bits of information according to the actual or guessed birth date of an individual, so that contemporaries are grouped together. There are footnotes giving source wherever possible. These databases aren't perfect, of course, but they often contain more information than one can find elsewhere in one place. I'm glad to share these databases with anyone who agrees not to post them intact on the internet -- they contain some coding (such as G in front of a date to indicate it's an educated guess) that would not make sense out of context! But I'd be delighted if anything I've done contributes to enhancing the profiles you work on for WikiTree. So just send me a note! Here are the family names for which I have databases. The focus is on Maryland families before 1800.
My father's family came from upper Montgomery County, Maryland, and many trace back to colonial Maryland. My mother's family came from upper New York State and trace back to New England. My sister is a member of the DAR and other lineage societies. I have joined First Families of Maryland.
Cousins on WikiTree
I've re-arranged the list of my cousins on WikiTree in order of their closeness!

Jack Day's DNA has been tested for genealogical purposes. It may be possible to confirm family relationships by comparing test results with Jack or other carriers of his ancestors' Y-chromosome or mitochondrial DNA.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jack:

Decided to go with Aasa Eysteinsdottir. I've left my reasoning on the profile. Then I'll try to sort out Eystein the Severe who is not recorded with named parents (except on Wikitree). Hope this works.
Hi, Jack. Yes, I have Snorri. Thought I'd start with the Ynglinga Saga but it feels like swimming in treacle at the moment. Yes I will take any profiles you'd rather be rid of. There's another question from you about the merge of Dag of Westmare's wives. I'll go see what I think and get back to you. C
Jack, you saw the newly published pages, I assume? And I assume you are sticking with the project? :-) I'm messaging everyone today and tomorrow, and Steven Harris is helping. Going well so far. Take care,
Thank you for acting so swiftly Jack. I am probably the opposite and don't always follow my convictions. Now to work on his uncle ; also a supposed emigrant . I think he was dead (else his younger brother wouldn't have inherited.)
As Susie mentioned in our newsletter, one of us would check in to see how you are doing, so here I am :)
