A team for all those who are interested in, hail from, or just love North and South Carolina to participate in challenges and Thons.

Registration opens on September 1

The Carolina Cousins will try to concentrate on North & South Carolina records, but you are more than welcome to source in other areas if you have access to different materials. No pressure, let's just have fun because every unsourced profile that gets sourced is improving our Wikitree!!! Even if you're new to Wikitree, your efforts will be appreciated.

Here are links to 2 custom reports that should take you directly to unsourced profiles for North Carolina & South Carolina

I'll be updating these links as they become available.
