Project: South Carolina

Categories: South Carolina | South Carolina Projects

This project is part of the United States History Project.

Welcome to the South Carolina Project!

South Carolina is a state of contained, unshared intimacies, a place of crosscurrents, passwords and secret handshakes, but that it rewards the curiosity of both natives and strangers alike.

Pat Conroy

The purpose of this project is to coordinate all South Carolina related projects and resources and combine that information into one place.

This above template is for use only on profiles that are of importance to the project or need to be PPP'd and managed by the project.

It is not for every single person from South Carolina. The following sticker might be used in that circumstance:

South Carolina Sticker Directions
Deceased persons {{South Carolina Sticker}}
... ... ... was a South Carolinian.
Living Persons {{South Carolina Sticker|living=y}}
... ... ... is a South Carolinian.

Sticker components cannot be changed so that more details can be added or so that they right justify or are centered.


The overall goals of the US History Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of South Carolina. To meet these goals:

  1. Add South Carolina related profiles, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
  3. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
  4. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  6. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.
