Update about the sticker.
The problem that was causing the false error was corrected. So... If you're seeing a DBE 896 for US Southern Colonist or US Southern Colonist Sticker now it's because you either have a colony switch on the project box (which only supports the parameters needs= needs1= & needs2=) or you're not using one of the 7 values for the colony switch on the sticker - from https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Template:US_Southern_Colonist_Sticker -
Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Jamestown
Pick just one colony per profile. Using the switch adds the colony-level Colonists category & the Colonists categories are more a tool for the project and team. You'll want to add appropriate location categories to help people find the person or to help identify neighbors and family members.
