Hi! I changed the project box for US Southern Colonies Project to a sticker. I reviewed the profile and do not believe that it needs to be managed by a project. If you think the profile should be managed by the US Southern Colonies Project, please fill out the Management Request Form (see the link, here).

Cheers, Liz
