South Carolina Bible RecordsEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Bible records can be used as a substitute in providing birth, marriage, and date information when South Carolina did not record vital information. In Marion County, for example, clerks used family Bibles to create delayed birth certificates. Some collections and compilations of Bible records are listed below.
