Our staff is available to do a limited amount of research for you if you can not come to the Archives in person.


Include the family name you are researching and as many specifics as you have available, such as dates of residence, approximate year of birth and/or death.  Names of other family members (spouse, siblings, uncles, aunts etc.).  The more information you give us the more we may be able to help you.


If you are looking for a specific document please include the type of document in your request, such as a marriage license or obituary. 


The state of South Carolina did not require birth or death certificates be recorded until 1915 and marriage licenses until 1911.  Also Clarendon County suffered a major loss of pre-Civil War records due to fire.  Our staff can not verify identities or the accuracy of information provided by other sources.  Records or indexes will be quoted as they appear.
