Hi! I'm working on conforming the Virginia Project to clarified WikiTree guidelines that say if a profile has a project box then it needs to be managed by the project. I don't see that this profile needs project management, so I deleted the Virginia Project Box. If you think it would benefit from project management, you can add it back if you also add the project account as a manager (WikiTree-41 has info on how to do that).

Please give me a holler if you have any questions.

Cheers, Liz ~ Leader, Virginia Project
