"Come celebrate your heritage with us!"

Virginia Greene DePriest

Virginia was a well known genealogist, who wrote many books, taught classes, and spearheaded the Broad River Genealogical Society during its earliest years. She had the Society in mind when making out her will, and most generously left her collection in our hands. You can peruse Virginia's files when you visit our Archives.

Russell McIntyre

At his death, Russell's wife looked around at the mass of information he had collected and decided to send it where it would be most useful for researchers. Broad River Genealogical Society was happy to accept her kind donation and now you can enjoy the fruits of Russell's labors when you visit our Archives.

Family folders, Subject Folders
Our vertical files are growing daily as folks are donating portions of their research. Maybe you've found a list of Confederate veterans buried in some obscure cemetery, or all the information on Grandpa Smith that you'd like to share, if it would be helpful to someone's search, we'd love to have a copy. Due to space limitations, our Archives Committee has final approval and must restrict items that we can accept. They reserve the right to decline a donation.

What genealogist doesn't love a good map? We have a nice collection.

Bulletins from other Societies
Our shelves are stuffed to overflowing with bulletins/newsletters published by genealogical societies from all across our great nation. You'll be hard pressed to find a state that is not represented.

Our collection of books
We have a large & growing collection of books on Marriages, Deaths, Cemeteries, Voters, Soldiers, Wars, Court records, and much, much more, most covering the states of North & South Carolina. However, we do have books on other states & invite you to come use our collection.

Family Histories
Broad River Genealogical Society is home to hundreds of family books, and the collection is continually growing.
