Chesterfield District Chapter, S.C.G.S. publishes quarterly the Chesterfield District Chronicle. We hold regular monthly meetings the second Sunday of each month except July and December. Some of the the projects that we are involved in are: collecting church histories from all the denominations in our area and encouraging these churches to have their records microfilmed, adopting and cleaning abandoned cemeteries, and having memorial markers placed for our county’s war dead.
We are a chapter of the South Carolina Genealogical Society of which there are 13 other chapters all across the state. S.C.G.S. holds a Summer Workshop each July at the South Carolina Archives and History Center in Columbia and their Annual Meeting each Fall. S.C.G.S. publishes quarterly the Carolina Herald and Newsletter and other beneficial books periodically.
If YOU, or anyone you know, has historical records of Chesterfield County, or anyplace, the Chesterfield District Genealogical Society would love to provide you a place to preserve for your original or copies of your family records.
Please consider donating your historical records to our society or another place of your choice to ensure your family history is safe.
New Website Updates
There are many new record sets that are being inventoried and reviewed for inclusion in the societies record inventory documenting your ancestors past.
The James Jenkins, James Shuemake and Jordan Journal web pages have been added back into the website.
New links have been added to the Research page to include a section for African American Research. We have also added a new caledar and even a Guestbook, both to the right of this section. Please leave us a note.
Additional work will be done to start adding indexed information onto the website regarding the holding of the Society. If you have any records you would like to donate, we can add those to our holdings. We can also work with you to digitize the records you have so they are protected as well as shared by others. You can then have the original records back knowing there will always be a copy available in the future.
