Introduction

This project is an endeavor to identify individuals who lived in colonial America in what is now the southern part of the United States of America. Participation does NOT require an ancestor that belongs to this group, but an interest in Colonial America, it's history, and the persons and events that shaped the Southern Colonies.

Southern Colonies encompasses all colonies, whether British, French, or Spanish, that were part of what is now the USA. We are working towards creating resources for each colony with links to assist in research as well as identifying those individuals and events that were a part of the southern colonial history. This is achieved by identifying and linking individual profiles to the project and appropriate categories. Our goal is also to ensure correct genealogy by research and documenting individuals and their relationships to parents, siblings, spouses, and children to ensure that WikiTree is an accurate resource to genealogists worldwide.

Individual colonial resource pages are linked under the individual sub-projects of British, French and Spanish. Sub-projects are mostly lead by interested members, and being a Leader is not a requirement for heading up a sub-project, so if you have a specific area of interested and are willing to assist other members in that area, please let us know so we can add you as a manager of that sub-project page.

Project Goals

The ongoing goals of this project are to:

1. Identify Colonist's Profiles and their descendants in any of the Southern Colonies in America, what is now known at the United States of America and then add:
a. Project Template : Add '''{{US Southern Colonist}}''' to profiles or follow this link to copy and paste the template to your profiles: US Southern Colonies TEMPLATE.
b. Project Protect or PPP : Request from any Leader that project protection be added to the lowest numbered profile in the case of duplicates. For more explanation see: About Project Protection
c. Merge Duplicates : In the case of duplicate profiles, merge duplicate profiles directly into the PPPd profile. For more explanation of merges see: Merging PPPd Profiles OR Merging Procedure and Why on G2G.
2. Contribute to Project Resource Pages: If you come across a related resource for a colony or related sub project, please add this to the appropriate Resource Page.
3. Profile Improvement: Add biographical information with documented sources in accordance with the Styles and Standards Policy of WikiTree.
4. Categories: Add appropriate categories to profiles to link the individual. If a person lived in a particular area, on a plantation, fought in a battle, was part of a military group, is buried in a cemetery, etc. For more information or help see the sub topic below, contact a member in the Categorization Project, or check out Categorization questions in G2G.
