Membership at Large Now Available

Membership in the society is still available through one of the affiliated chapters. Upon application to the chapter of one’s choice and acceptance by that chapter, a membership number is assigned by the State Treasurer.  Dues are payable for the calendar year beginning January 1.  Membership entitles members to receive only those official periodicals of the Society published subsequent to receipt of member’s dues by the Society Treasurer.  Two classifications of membership are available: (1) Individual membership – one person at one address; (2) Family membership – two persons at the same address.  State dues are included in the Chapter dues.  Membership in any Chapter entitles a member to join another Chapter by paying that Chapter’s dues only (Associate membership).

At the annual meeting of the South Carolina Genealogical Society held in Columbia on Saturday, October 15, 2016, the members present voted to change the current Constitution concerning membership requirements.  SCGS does not currently have a presence in each county of South Carolina.  Therefore, beginning in 2017, we now offer those individuals who wish to join SCGS, without joining a local chapter, the choice of joining as a member at large for $25.00 per year.  Membership at large includes all rights and privileges of membership in the society. Members at Large will recieve copies of The Carolina Herald and Newsletter.  Membership will run from January 1 to December 31 each year. Dues may be mailed to Sandra Wilkie, Treasurer, PO Box 234, Mayo, SC 29368-0234 or SCGS, PO Box 24526, Columbia, SC 29224-4526.

Libraries and other organizations desiring to receive SCGS, Inc. publications may be subscribers only.  Please see the link:  Subscription Application.


The South Carolina Genealogical Society, Inc. does NOT have a staff to do research. A list of professional researchers (paid research) may be obtained from the South Carolina Department of Archives and HistoryParklane Road, Columbia, SC 29223, or the South Caroliniana Library, University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC 29208. Most county libraries also maintain similar lists.


Excerpt from Volume 2 Number 1 of  The Carolina Herald

A staff member of the late Tri-centennial Commission remarked that South Carolinians are more interested in genealogy than in history.  We recognize no conflict between the two. Each subject enhances and enlightens the other; indeed, is part and parcel of the other. We do deplore the image that has been attached to henealogical study by the uninformed: an old folks’ pastime tainted with snobbery.  Genealogy is fun–more fun than a detective story because it deals with real people and events.  And the pleasure is not restricted to those who descend from “old families”. All families are old families, and South Carolinians, whatever their stripe and whatever their purpose, will find that their ancestors are fascinating folks.

There are lots of things that I wished I had asked my grandparents.
Young people should be attentive to their elders and ask all
kinds of questions every time they can.  If you don’t think
you will remember it, write it down.  Because one of these days,
there won’t be anyone to ask.
