Beiman Otis Prince surname files
Surname files are a popular resource for genealogists. They generally do not contain official records but include research reports, family charts and miscellaneous collected materials. Excellent surname collections exist for South Carolina but Richland County has not had a unique collection of surname files until now. Thanks to a generous gift the Beiman Otis Prince surname file collection has been donated to the Walker Local and Family History Center.
Prince was born in 1922 in Horrell Hill and graduated from Lower Richland High School. He wrote several books and family history articles for the South Carolina Magazine and the Columbia Star during the 1960's and extensively researched Richland County families. This collection contains nearly 2000 names and is available in the Walker Local and Family History Center. See the link below for a list of names represented in the collection.
