Hi Mary Jo,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, working within the projects which coordinate them is essential.

I took a look at your family tree, thinking I could suggest one or two. You have so many potentials, though, that I am going to recommend using the Pre-1700 Projects list to find those which best fits your current research focus. The linked pages have resources, special project guidelines, and ways to collaborate with the project members.

Let me know if you have trouble finding projects which fit your focus. Click my name, then ask in the comment section of my page.
