Collection Description

Many original Church of England (Episcopal Church) records dating from South Carolina's colonial period (1706-1778) are kept at this facility.

All surviving colonial parish registers have been published in South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine (FHL Book 975.7 B2s) WorldCat entry, or in book form.[2]

For a descriptive inventory of surviving colonial and more recent parish records, see Margaretta Childs, and Isabella G. Leland, "South Carolina Episcopal Church Records," South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Magazine 84 (October 1983): 250-63. (FHL Book 975.7 B2s v. 84), WorldCat entry, digital version at JSTOR ($).
