22 pages, each 8½" by 11", cardstock covers, stapled and taped.  This handy book gives you the "where" you will need to know to do SC research.  The book begins with a county outline map of the state with each county name and year of formation written on it.  Following this is a series

of maps of each individual county with the important cities typed in where they are located.  Date of creation of the county is given plus the parent counties' names and the county seat and zip code.  The towns in old and new gazetteers are listed in alphabetical order with the addition of a second column telling you what county holds their genealogical records.  Very helpful as it gives you guidance in finding which county seat you need to contact for the original records of your ancestors.  For instance, there are two towns named Springdale, one in Lancaster County and one in Lexington County.  There are also towns named Springfield, Spring Hill, Springmaid, Spring Mills and Springwood!  For in-depth information on your ancestor, you must know where to look. This book really helps with that!  Multiple copies are available.  PRICE:  $6

SC - YOGS CRAZY CRATE 73:  BOOK 6:  SOUTH CAROLINA 1800 CENSUS.  By Ronald Vern Jackson and Gary Ronald Teeples.  Published by Accelerated Indexing Systems.  Hardbound.  All data from all the columns in this census is included in this book.  No computer or microfilm machine

will be needed.  Four pages of data have been shrunk and they appear (all four pages) on each page of this book.  There are 591 pages of this census abstract printed onto 148 pages of text. 

A chronological History of South Carolina is inserted into the front of this book covering many years, part of an introduction with many timely hints on proper research and documentation.  This 20 pages is in addition to the numbered pages.  Also at the front, there are several maps of rivers, of Proprietary counties, of parishes, a 1785 map

of counties and court districts, and one dated 1791-1799.  These are very helpful, plus one map is dated as of 1800, plus one showing the counties in 1868 and a map of the counties with the date of formation and the county names. 

This book is alphabetically arranged by the surname, then the first name of the head of the family.  Columns following the name include the county and [SC] for South Carolina.  The page number listed is the page number in the original census.  This is a numerical census.  Except for the name of the head of the family no other names were collected.  The twelve numerical columns include:

a.) Number of males under 10 years of age.

b.) Number of males between 10 to 16 years of age.

c.) Number of males between 16 to 26 years of age.

d.) Number of males between 26 to 45 years of age.

k.) Number of other free persons in that family, except Indians not taxed.

l.) Number of slaves in the household.

Just think, you would have the entire census of SC in 1800 at home!  This would be great to study for misspellings.  Remember every member of the household was counted, but only the head was named.  The book is light green in color and was, at some time, stored with books that were black.  There are black smudges of color on the highlights

of the textured cover of this book.  There is a blank yellow label on the inside front top cover that will be a perfect space to put your name and address stamp.  PRICE:  $32

SC -CRAZY CRATE-YOGS 73: BOOK SET 11:  FREE AFRICAN AMERICANS OF NORTH CAROLINA, VIRGINIA, AND SOUTH CAROLINA FROM THE COLONIAL PERIOD TO ABOUT 1820,  FOURTH EDITION, TWO VOLUMES  1,042 pages,Including the Family Histories of More Than 80% of Those Counted as "All Other Free People." [4,975 counted in North Carolina alone in 1790, and many of them are in this book.]  By Paul Heinegg.  Clearfield Company, ©2001 by the author.  This book is incredible!  The detail collected by this man fills these pages with information on Free Blacks and Mulattoes which genealogists are starving for because it is so very difficult to locate. This set of books has won an award for Excellence in Publishing from the North Carolina Genealogical Society.

This set has also won the prestigious Donald Lines Jacobus Award presented by The American Society of Genealogists. The first Edition was published in 1992, the second edition was published in 1994, the third edition was published in 1997, followed by this fourth edition in 2001.  The first article is titled "Ivey Family" and the record begins in 1689, when George Ivey of Norfolk County, NC, died leaving to his son, by the same name, 100 acres of land. Twenty-three members of that family are mentioned in, and relationships are given for, that many people in that space. [References are cited].  This detailed account of this family runs 2½ pages.  Other families are listed in even greater detail.  "Often the product of relationships between slaves and free people of various admixtures of African, Native American and European descent, the free blacks familial origins and subsequent domestic connections determined their legal status and shaped, in large measure, their social standing."  The earlier editions covered free persons of Maryland and Delaware, followed by Virginia and North Carolina.  This expansion of the previous book now also includes South Carolina.  Taken together, the author provides the fullest discussion of the family origins of free people of color in the Anglophone colonial South.  The line between freedom and slavery was extraordinarily permeable.  Various peoples of European, African and Native American descent--both free and unfree--crossed the line between freedom and slavery openly.  They worked together, played together and even married openly in a manner that would later be condemned by custom and prohibited by law.  Family histories in this set are for the families of these surnames to which the research applies.  The number is of the first names within that surname that are listed in the index.   Surnames of the families include:  Abel 20 , Africa 4, Ailstock 15, Alford 7, Allen 26, Allways 2, Alman

Silas Emmett Lucas, Jr.  Published by Southern Historical Press. ©1977.  This is Volume 1 of 3, This copy is an extra to be sold individually.  [NOTE:  The first five volumes of these records covering the years 1736-1746 are not included in this book.  They were incorporated into an index of miscellaneous records available at the South Carolina Archives and the Probate Judge's Office in Charleston, SC.]

This book is 71 pages and is an index of testate and intestate names for which files have been, or were, created. The author calls the second part an Index, but it is not an index to the first part.  The second part is a different jurisdiction than the first part and does not include the same names. It is an additional 44 pages, hardbound.  SC counties during this period include three counties formed

in 1682:  Craven, Berkley and Colleton plus Granville

formed in 1710.  The nice clear map in the front establishes the county lines.  The following page shows the map of the parishes of SC during this early time period.  Each is named and numbered with their respective formation dates. Inventories often contain little nuggets of information quite usable for the family researcher.  They contain lists of personal property for persons who had died without

making a will (called dying intestate).  These are the

largest part of the records in these volumes, which also include inventories for testate persons [who did leave a will when they died.]

These books also include sales of estates (often showing purchasers [often friends and family members] and divisions of estates.  Almost always the names of the appraisers are given, and often the names of the administrators [for the intestate properties or the name of the executors, for those who left wills.  Many of these are not dated, but a date may be found within the papers,

which are not a part of either section of this book,  and the location may be anywhere - a District, a Parish, a County, a River, Township, a Town, etc.  The original volumes, the WPA indexes and the L.D.S. (Mormon) microfilm should all be used in cases where doubt is noted.

The WPAs [Works Progress Administration] projects were done in the 1930s, as a government-led project to make work for out-of-work people who knew how to type and these workers indexed county records, birth, marriage and death certificates, and a myriad of housekeeping and organizing projects for which we genealogists are eternally grateful.  [I for one, wish President Obama would think of reinstating those projects and bringing the records, which for the most part stopped at 1920, up to at least the year 1999.   He could take several million people off the unemployment rolls and put them to work doing, tedious, but worthwhile work.  With the computers that we have today, we could have this country's records straightened out in short order.  Neatness and Orderliness bespeak a nation that knows where they have been and also where to go from here!

The microfilm was also done long ago when these original volumes were in better shape than is now the case.  At the time of the publication of these books, copies of all three of these sources were available from the SC archives.  This book covers fifteen such volumes, and the author

personally turned every page of these volumes, and spent hours of time viewing the microfilm copies and the WPA records when necessary, in his effort to give you his best reading of the material.  The Archives Control Number, The Volume Designation and the Years Covered by each volume are here in this book.  This book's printing has somewhat faded over time, so a magnifying device should be handy, and a yellow piece of acetate increases readability and contrast.  The book gives surname, first name, the date, the location, if known, and the volume and page number. 

These are the surnames beginning with As-Bs from the

book that have two (,)or more (#) entries:  Ackerman, Adams 7, Ainger, Ainslee, Air 3, Aish, Akehead, Akin/s 6, Aldridge, Alexander 4, Allen 8, Allison 5, Al(l)ston 6, Amey, Amos/s, Anderson 20, Armstrong 4, Arnold 3, Arthur, Ash 12, Ashby 4, Atchison, Atkin/s 6, Atkinson 4, Audeb(e/u)rt, Austin 3, Avant/t 3, Backhouse 3, Bacon 3, Bail(e)ey 6, Baker/s 17, Ball 11, Ballentine 3, Bampfield, Barker, Barksdale, Barnes 4, Barns 3, Barr 5, Barron, Barton 5, Baynard 3, Beaird 3, Beard, Bearman 3, Beaty, Bedon 4, Bee 4, Bell 9, Bellinger 3, Ben(n)ison 4, Bennet, Bennett 3, Benoist 8, Bird, Black, Blackburn, Blake 4, Blamyer, Bland 3, Bochet 4, Bodell, Bog(g)s 5, Boisseau 4, Bolton 3, Bond 3, Bonhoste, Bonneau 12, Bonny, Boone 12, Booth, Bossard, Boswood 3, Boutwell, Bower/s, Bowman 4, Bradley 3, Bradwell 4, Brailsford 3, Brandford, Branford 5, Bremar 3, Bretton, Brewton, Brisbane, Britton 7, Broadbelt 3, Brockin(g)ton 4, Broughton 11, Brown 27 Browne, Bruce 4, Brunet/t 3, Bruns(t)on 7, Bryan/t 9, Buchan(n)an 4, Buckholt/s, Bull 7, Bulline 4, Burd, Burgess 5, Burn, Burnet 3, Burnett, Burnham 3, Burnley, Burton 6, Bush, Butler 12, Byers. Lots of names are left in this section, but the index covers different names from a different place, so let's go there.

The next index is labeled Newberry [SC] County Court Records.  The index gives last name, first name and a number [My guess is this number may be a key to a page number in a different set of books, or maybe is the key to the original books or papers.]  We will do the names beginning with Cs and the Ds here: Caldwell 21, Calh(oo/ou)n 3, Calk, Campbell 17, Cannon 9, Cappelman, Carmack, Carmical/ Carmichael/ Carmicle 3, Carn(e)s 5, Carson, Casey 8, Casilman/n 4, Cas(s)om, Cate/s 7, Cath(e)rine, Cath(e)y 3, Catoe 3, Cauldwell 3, Cerns 5, Chambers 6, Chandler 20, Chapman 11, Chap(p)el/l 5, Charles, Clark 9, Clarke 3, Clary 8, Cleland, Coat/e  10,
