Accessible Archives is a genealogy database that features historical information not found in larger databases like Ancestry or HeritageQuest. If you haven’t tried it then you are in for a research treat provided by Richland Library. Database highlights include digitized South Carolina colonial newspapers and digitized African American Civil War era newspapers. These are resources not found anywhere else online
While there are plenty of other Accessible Archives resources to explore we are excited in the Walker Local and Family History Center by resources they have recently added. A collection of South Carolina county histories is now available including: Marion, Marlboro, Darlington and Beaufort. They also have added general South Carolina histories like: John Belton O’Neall’s Biographical Sketches of South Carolina V. 1 & 2; Yates Snowden’s History of South Carolina V. 1-5 and Who’s Who in South Carolina, 1921. See Related Resources for a link and enjoy exploring this resource. See if the county you are researching has a digitized history.
