South Carolina Historical Society Placing Finding Aids Online

The South Carolina Historical Society, one of the richest archives for Lowcountry genealogy research, has embarked on a project to place their finding aids online.

Planning a research trip to Charleston? Be sure to bookmark the South Carolina Historical Society's Finding Aids page and check back often to see their new additions.

What Are Finding Aids? How Can They Help Your Research?

Finding aids are detailed inventories of documentary collections, prepared by archivists. While an archive's catalog will give you an overview of a particular collection, finding aids take you much deeper into the collection and help you identify which portions of a collection may be most useful for your research.

Online Finding Aids Can Help You Prepare for Your Research Trip and Save You Valuable Time on the Ground

If you know in advance which boxes and folders you want to view from a given collection, you can make the most of your research time when you arrive.

Let's look at an example from the first batch of online finding aids for the South Carolina Historical Society. The Ball Family Papers are one of the richest collections of plantation records among the South Carolina Historical Society's holdings. If we look at the description of the Ball Family Papers in SCHS's online catalog, we see the following summary:

Ball Family Papers Catalog Summary

Now let's look at a portion of the finding aid for the Ball Family Papers. Here we see much more detail:

Ball Family Finding Aid Detail

Make the Most of Your Research Time in Charleston

Research hint ~ When the South Carolina Historical Society closes in the late afternoon, you can head over to the South Carolina Room and the Charleston Archive at the Charleston Public Library, less than 5 minutes away, and extend your research time into the evening. The South Carolina Room and the Charleston Archive have finding aids online as well, so you can really plan ahead!

Freedmen's Bureau Record Breaks Through the 1870 Brick Wall for SC African American Genealogy

Record Connects Freedmen with Former Slaveholders

So rarely does a record from Reconstruction actually connect freed people to a former slaveholder. When we find records like this we are so excited.

We are very excited today, because we found another! This record is a part of the "Pre-Bureau" records for South Carolina.

Having taken Port Royal in 1861, Union forces were in lower South Carolina long before the Freedmen's Bureau was established. This record does not have a date but is interleaved with records made in 1865. It is reproduced on NARA Micropublication M869, Reel 38.

This record appears in rations requests and lists the names of elders with plantations and the names of former slaveholders. What a find!

Please click on the image below to view the record full-size. We hope you find an ancestor here. Happy Ancestor Hunting from the crew at Lowcountry Africana!
