South Carolina Genealogy
As I read "Narrative Reminiscences in Williamsburg" (pub. 1894) by Dr.
Samuel Davis McGill (b. 1819, d. 1897), I simply jotted down notes of-
1. people from other places that were associated with the author- 2. people
that moved from other states to Williamsburg- 3. people that moved to
other states from Williamsburg and- 4. people that moved within the state
of South Carolina.

About the SCGenWeb Project
- In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky
Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single
entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases
would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked,
so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they
could be located in the index.
At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the
collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web
page. The SCGenWeb Project is an extension of the KYGenWeb Project. The
person responsible for this county page is
. Please contact me, if you have a desire to add your data to the database.

to (or by) the 1850 Census. The book is 555 pages and indexes over 6,000
