I am going to present my Five Favorite Genealogy Sites and The Art of the Query at the Charleston, County SC Public Library on June 15 at 2 p.m.
This wonderful local library has an entire department devoted to history and genealogy, called the South Carolina Room. The staff post a blog regularly about events and collections, and have a whole set of pages to help you with genealogy.
The South Carolina Room has primary source records such as county wills, deaths and birth records. The Special Collections Department, located on the second floor of theMain Library, is an archive of historic manuscripts, books and visual materials representing Charleston and the surrounding Lowcountry. Much of the unique manuscript material housed in Special Collections contains valuable genealogical information and is available on microfilm or photocopies in the South Carolina Room. Access to the original materials is by appointment only. For more information, call 843-805-6968, e-mail the Special Collections Department or visit the Special Collections at CCPL blog site.
I’m really looking forward to visiting there!
