South Carolina State House, Columbia


Petitions to the state legislature and state law books mention many people by name. A person did not necessarily have to be prominent to appear in these records. Many ordinary people appear. Digital editions enable genealogists to keyword search unindexed resources for personal names of ancestors.
For information about lawyers in South Carolina, see South Carolina Occupations.
