I see that you just did the Pre-1700 Self-Certification. That's great! Is there a particular time period, location, or topic you're interested in? Maybe you have some historically-significant ancestors? Participation in a project is strongly encouraged for those wishing to edit Pre-1700 profiles.

I've been trying to update my family tree via 23 and me's connection with myheritage.com, but getting frustrated with the demand for exhorbitant subscriptions to access useful info they have. Thought it would be much better to contribute to a public wiki.
