Please know that this and other projects exist to support members in doing a quality job of documenting their ancestors and relatives. Adding a project account as a profile manager absolutely does not indicate control by the project -- it only means that that project is available to support future work on that profile. The project has no desire to prevent members from researching and documenting their ancestors' lives. Furthermore, we do not have the capacity to take over even a tiny fraction of the needed work on the thousands of the profiles that are in the scope of the project.
When profiles such as Klein-242 are project-protected (PPP), it does NOT mean that the profile is something like a precious hothouse flower that should not be touched by others. All too often it means that there is -- or formerly was -- a bit of a mess surrounding the profile, the family's genealogy, or the person's names, so a Project Leader added PPP so that the profile would not be merged into a different person's profile or be given a different set of parents without appropriate discussion or involvement of project leadership. Profiles like that one often are in desperate need of additional sources, biography writing, and other improvements -- and once the person is well-documented, we probably will be able to take the PPP away because the profile is no longer likely to be subject to having drastic changes made by mistake. That particular profile is one of thousands that are in Category: New Netherland Settlers Project Needs LNAB as an invitation to members to find and document the information we need to determine what the person's Last Name at Birth was. Categories like that one are intended as invitations to help; they should not scare people away.
There is no need to be a project member in order to edit profiles that have a project account as a manager, or that have PPP status. We'd love for you to join the project (I do see that you have edited a bunch of profiles in the New Netherland project's ambit, so I think you have an interest that extends beyond that Klein profile), but it's your decision whether you want to do that. Regardless, I invite you to peruse the information about New Netherland and research resources for New Netherland that we've assembled. I learned a great deal from other members of this project -- about my New Netherland ancestors and about researching this unique place and time, and I want others to have the same positive experience.
Pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, thus coordinating with others is essential.
These projects seem to fit your ancestors: Massachusetts Project or New York Project, (Leader is Ellen Smith). Click the link to read how to join.
