There are category links to add to your ancestor's profiles and research links to learn more about your family. The Project is a good way to consolidate the WikiTree ancestors with historic connections to the years of 1773 (Boston Tea Party) to 1789 (ratification of the U.S. Constitution.) All patriot, loyalist, Hessians, French, Native Americans or any other profiles with a connection to these years should be linked to an appropriate category in the Project.

I see you have an interest in Virginia (I saw your Virginia tag). Let me know if you'd like to join the Virginia project - it's a subproject under the United States History project & covers Virginia from June 25, 1788 (the date Virginia ratified the Constitution). You might also be interested in this Virginia project, under the US Southern Colonies project, which covers "pre-USA" Virginia.
