Genealogy Research

Time, patience and an inquiring mind are basic equipment for anyone who wishes to compile a genealogy. This history of a family frequently resembles a jigsaw puzzle which must be put together piece by piece. It may take months or even years to complete a single line of descent, and evidence must be considered and clues followed until each piece is fitted into the whole. The Charleston County Public Library offers genealogy services and tools to help get you started.
