One of the print series I admire greatly is the Maine Genealogical Society's project on Families in the 1790 census. Over 2,500 families have had sketches published in the 10 volumes of this series. You can find a comprehensive index (for free) to it at their website. A sample sketch is here. This is great example of volunteering and publishing your own families at the same time. [Yes, Maine wasn't its own state until 1820, but the area that constitutes Maine is covered].
The other two northern New England states have followed suit, but not nearly to the extent of the Mainers. Vermont has two volumes published, and New Hampshire one, to which I supplied two sketches. I wonder why no other states have started such a project. The idea was to bridge the gap between the American Revolution and the 1850 census. This is a particularly hard time period to research.
I should write up a few more families and send them in. I just get so bogged down in getting them right that I neglect finishing them.
