The mission of the US Southern Colonies project is to add and improve profiles of early and significant US Southern Colonists - Colonial Americans who lived in what is now the southern part of the United States of America. Project members take primary responsibility for relevant profiles or family groups and work on merging duplicates, cleaning up profiles, adding sources, and removing incorrect information.

Please post here if you would like to join.  Here is our project to page:


asked Apr 15, 2017 in Requests for Project Volunteers by Paula J G2G6 Pilot (171,760 points)
Hello, I would like to join. I have traced ancestors all the way back to Jamestowne colony and have many lines in Maryland, Virgina/West Virginia, and Kentucky on my paternal side, and North Carolina, Alabama, and Mississippi on my maternal side.
Being the 9G Grandson of John Clarke, I'd love to be part of this.


Thank you,

Absolutely! Anne asked Southern Colonies to take over the PM but I am happy to have the current PMs watch over it for us!
I would like to join the Southern Colonies project. Several of my family lines trace all the way back to Jamestown, others trace to South Carolina. They merge with descendants of Puritans from New England in Missouri in the 1800s. Quite a mix. I will be doing a lot of work on several family line pages from the Southern colonies and certainly want to join the discussions. Thanks. Gary Taylor, Houston Texas.
I would love to join the Southern Colonies Project!  I have ancestors from the Virginia Colonies!

I thought I had already asked but I'd like to be a part of this project. I'm already part of the Google group.
Being from Kentucky I would love to join the southern colonies project!
I would like to join this project. Almost all of my ancestors landed in Virginia Colony or North Carolina in the 1600s-1700s.
I would also like to join this project. I have several family lines presently going back to colonial Maryland, Virginia, and the Carolinas.
Please allow me to join this project.  I am truly a Southern descendent.  I have oodles of relatives to add to the project.  I just discovered the project when attempting to add some relatives.  However, they are protected and therefore, cannot be connected.  I would love to help in this endeavor.

Hello Paula,

I have traced a family line back to Virginia, which has led me into researching a lot about the descendents of the William Moseley who arrived in Virginia in 1649, from Rotterdam, but born in England. I think this is the branch I will connect to, so backtracking from there, but even if I don't, what is the point of researching all this if I don't share the info with anyone else who may be interested? So I certified pre-1700 and that led me to your project. May I join? Would you kindly recommend any sub-projects you think I should look into collaborating on? Thank you.
