Hi Lewis,

Thank you so much for responding to our check-in for the Southern Colonies and Southern Pioneers

We are sorry to hear that you are not currently active, but we understand that life happens and interests shift as we grow our shared tree and that some members may have moved on to projects more pertinent to the branches they are currently building.

The badge will be removed. Please know that you will always be welcome to rejoin the project should your interests shift back in this direction. Thank you so much for your participation; we genuinely appreciate it.

Mary ~ Volunteer Coordinator

PS I will certainly check out your website: http://www.culpepperconnections.com

Hi Lewis,

On behalf of the Southern Colonies Project, I am doing a six-month check-in with members to see what aspects of the project interest them most and whether they have suggestions for additional project goals.

Are you active in any other Southern Colonies Subprojects, such as Southern Pioneers Project? All of us at WikiTree would like to thank you for your contributions and hope that you are enjoying exploring your ancestors.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Please try Southern Pioneers Stickers on profiles to show your roots.

Hi Lee,

Project badges are black. See the black badge that has Southern Colonies written in blue? We don’t have badges for subprojects.

Hi Lew,

Thanks for taking the Pre-1700 Quiz!

Because pre-1700 ancestors are shared by many descendants, coordinating with others is essential. You can learn more about joining the community in How To #3 and in the Project FAQ.

Based on your tags the Quakers Project may fit your research focus. If not, use the Pre-1700 Projects list to review other possibilities. Read the goals and tasks of the projects and join those which are a good fit.

Have questions? Ask in the comments section of my profile.
