'''''Plats For State Land Grants 1784-1868'''''
+
 
+
This series consists of recorded copies of plats for state land grants for the Charleston and&nbsp;the Columbia Series&nbsp;with their certificates of admeasurement or certification.&nbsp; All personal names and geographic features on these plats are included in the repository's [http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Search.aspx?br=1 On-line Index to Plats for State Land Grants]<br>
+
 
+
The South Carolina Constitution of 1790 required the surveyor general to maintain offices in both the new capital at Columbia and in Charleston. The surveyor general began to use separate volumes for recording plats in his Columbia office in 1796. Before that, all plats were recorded in the set of volumes begun in Charleston in 1784. After 1796, most plats for land grants in the Upper Division of the state were recorded and filed in Columbia. The surveyor general chose to make the Columbia volumes a continuation of the state plat volumes begun in Charleston and gave the initial Columbia volume the number thirty-six to correspond with the number of the volume that had then been reached in the Charleston series. As a result, there are volumes numbered thirty-six through forty-three from each office, but the records in them are not duplicative.
+
 
+
Also included are the Plan Books containing Plats and Plans.

==== Probate  ====
+
 
+
Probate is the “court procedure by which a will is proved to be valid or invalid” and encompasses “all matters and proceedings pertaining to the administration of estates, guardianships, etc.”<ref>Henry Campbell Black, ''Black's Law Dictionary,'' 5th ed. (St. Paul, Minnesota: West Publishing Co., 1979), 1081, "probate."</ref> Various types of records are created throughout the probate process. These may include, [[United States Probate Wills|wills]], bonds, petitions, accounts, inventories, administrations, orders, decrees, and distributions. For further information see probate records&nbsp;in [[South Carolina Probate Records|South Carolina]].
+
 
+
<br>The [[South Carolina Department of Archives and History]] has&nbsp; microfilms or typescripts of wills, inventories, bills of sale, power of attorneys, bonds, notes, administrations, judgments, and sales records. They have placed [http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/search.aspx Will Transcriptions] for 1782 to 1855 online. Index searchable by name and the image is available.

==== Taxation  ====

+
==== Vital Records  ====
+
 
+
Birth, marriage, and death records were not recorded by South Carolina until the 1900s, thus leaving a lack of vital records. Substitute records, when available, are used to obtain this information. These substitute records including newspapers, court records have been added to this section, when applicable. <br>
+
 
+
===== Birth  =====
+
 
+
State-wide birth registration began in 1915.&nbsp; For a copy of&nbsp;a birth from 1915&nbsp;or later,&nbsp;contact the [http://www.scdhec.gov/administration/vr/ South Carolina Department of Health].&nbsp; The Richland County Health Department also has copies but they provide only an abbreviated form with limited information. &nbsp;For more information, see the [[South Carolina Vital Records|South Carolina Vital Records]] page.
+
 
+
===== Marriage  =====
+
 
+
In South Carolina, marriage licenses were not required by local governments until 1 July 1911. However, in the 1700s, the Church of England parish churches were required to record all marriages - even if the couple were not members of the denomination.&nbsp;Not all churches recorded these marriages and some&nbsp;have not survived. See [[South Carolina Vital Records#Marriage_Records|South Carolina Vital Records]] for more information. <br>
+
 
+
The [http://www.richlandonline.com/departments/probate/index.asp Richland County probate court] holds marriage licenses issued from 1 July 1911 to the present. Statewide registration of marriages began in July 1950 and the [http://www.scdhec.gov/administration/vr/index.htm South Carolina Division of Vital Records] has copies of licenses issued after 1 July 1950 through November 2009.

Newspapers are used as a substitute to locate marriage information.&nbsp; See [[South Carolina Newspapers|South Carolina Newspapers<span id="fck_dom_range_temp_1298405881726_699" />]].
