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.

I am glad to know that the Chesterfield District in SC holds regular meetings. My interest in the area is for ancestors for my late husband--Collins lineage. One of these days, I may be able to visit the area, though time is not on my side. The next best option would be that I might find info about his Collins family from area-specific documents that cannot be found online. Is that wishful thinking? Linda Collins, AR

Hello, I am hoping to find photos of my 3rd, 4th and 5th grandparents. They are Tristram Thomas, and Mary Hollingsworth, Joseph Burch Jr and Elizabeth Thomas, Joseph Thomas Burch and Susannah Jackson. Also, if anyone would have them, photos of their son Joseph J Burch and Elizabeth Graves Johnson and their son Moultrie Kirkwood Burch and his wife Julia Huntley. If you might even suggest where to locate those photos, I’d be very grateful. I’m planning a trip south next Spring. Thank you so very much!

I am looking for the mothers name for Quincy Fletcher deceased 5 March 1974. Quincy’s maiden name was Melton. I believe her mother is a Rody A but I do not know her maiden name. Thank you for any assistance. Lynne
