Hi! I "unlocked" this profile (removed PPP). PPP stands for "project-protected profile" and must be supported by a project as manager. 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

This profile as a suggestion message of "811 Uncleaned profile after merge". Since it is protected, I can't do it. Would the profile manager please work on the suggestion? Thank you.

the half brother doesn't seem right in this line, none of the Mass. line seems to fit. Think they are a different line.
