Transcribing cemetery information in any one or all of the three counties.
If you live in the TriCounty area, or are visiting, why not photograph a cemetery? There are many small ones that can be photographed in less than an hour! I cannot tell you the urgency to get the headstones photographed. The cemeteries are being vandalized, and some stones are simply not readable anymore. You CAN help by making a record of them with photographs.
We need someone who can spend some time at the county court houses and copy courthouse indexes. If you can copy one book, this would be helpful. Then they can be snail mailed to me, and we will find someone to transcribe them for the website.
Marriage Records Project
We would like to provide a marriage record database with the name of the bride and groom, their parents, marriage date and license number. With just this small amount of information, researchers can add a new generation of ancestors to their growing family.
Do you have copies of old newspapers that you would be willing to transcribe and donate? Old newspapers can be a wealth of informaiton for someone searching for that elusive ancestor. There are also many interesting articles full of information such as any articles on the Santee Cooper Project of the early 1900's, information on our political leaders, etc. Many of these old newspapers can be found on microfilm at local libraries. Can YOU help us with this?
If you have other resources that you think might be of interest to another researcher, please Email Us please let us know and we will be more than happy to have you join us!
