Walker Local and Family History Center

The Walker Local and Family History Center is located on the third level of the Richland Library’s Main Library. Anne, Debbie, Lauren and Margaret are available to guide your research during regular library hours.

Collection emphasis in the Walker Local History Room is on local and family history information about the South Carolina midlands. The collection continues to grow through library funding and generous donations from our community..

While the print collection does not circulate, online resources are accessible through the Local History Digital Collection. Our obituary index contains over one millions records. Other recent acquisitions include the Otis Prince surname files and the State Hospital cemetery survey

You don't have to have southern ancestry to use the database resources in the Walker Local and Family History Center. Richland Library provides patrons with access to several genealogy databases. Also, we are a FamilySearch affiliate. Customers can order microfilm through the Family History catalog and request that it be sent here.
