imageDo you have early ancestors from Maryland, Virginia, the Carolinas or Georgia, or are you interested in working on pre-1776 profiles from these colonies?

We are excited to announce the re-launch of the US Southern Colonies Project into dynamic new teams. There are plenty of ways to get involved, whether it be through a colonial, topical or profile improvement team.

If you have an interest in US Southern Colonial history, have been on WikiTree at least 30 days, have made at least 100 contributions, and have successfully taken the pre-1700 quiz then we would love to have you on board.

To join the project, please answer the question below and say that you would like to join (please don't comment as it makes it hard to keep track - thanks!) and I will be in touch. Please also make sure that you are signed in when you post on here to I know who you are.

Many thanks,

Susie, Co-Leader US Southern Colonies

Hi James, we'd love to have you in the project but there are a few things you would need to do first. Have a look at the project page and perhaps start working towards those goals. Then when you reach them feel free to post again. Many thanks, Susie :-)
