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.

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Jack:

Hi Jack. I ended up looking at your profile because I was curious as to why someone born in the 1940s was listed in the "Charlemagne to William the Conqueror Descent" list. Once I was here, I found out we're 9th cousins once removed, so wanted to at least say 'hello!'
Hi Jack, I've added you to Warin de Warenne's trusted list, but I'm not happy about changing his LNAB to Loraine, without further discussion. The evidence for such a name as provided by the Morris article is pretty flimsy, and the article itself seems to have quite a few errors. Thanks
Jack - the magna carta trail Chetwood-1 to Malet-18 is badged, but the profiles I'm seeing on the trail all need work. Wodhull-49 has a message from you on it that makes it seem you reviewed/approved the trail. Did you?
I’m Susie the new leader of the England Project. We are contacting all existing members of the project to find out how you are currently involved, and how you would like to be involved moving forward. Please have a look at the England Project page for more information, and then contact either myself or Gillian to let us know what you’d like to do, or if you have any questions. We can then list your interests, help you join the team in the Google group forum for England, and give you any help you might need to get going. If we don’t hear back from you we’ll assume you no longer want to be a part of the England Project at this time.
Many thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,
This early Maryland couple, Roberty Hardisty and his wife Ann "Nancy" Hopkins, left on the Old Wagon road through Pennsylvania into Ohio.
I have been working to gather information on them and have placed every scrap into their wikitree profiles.
I see that you have quite a lot of experience with Maryland. I would appreciate if you could take a look at these profiles and let me know if you have any ideas for researching this couple. I am actually thinking about hiring a professional genealogist.
