Chesterfield District Chapter, S.C.G.S. publishes quarterly
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

We are a chapter of the
South Carolina Genealogical Society
of which there are 18 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
Carolina Herald and Newsletter and other beneficial
books periodically.

New Materials Coming Soon

Staff are currently working on the following items to be included in part on the society webpage.

World War II Interviews - As a teacher for Chesterfield County Public Schools, one of our members included the interviewing of World War II veterans as a class assignment.  It is with great pride she has approved partial Interviews be posted on the society page.  All the originals can be found in Cheraw at the Matheson Library in their History Room.

Family Group Sheets - A large group of Family Group Sheets has been found.  Included in these documents are names such as Kolb, Ellerbe, Gregg, Kershaw, and Pegues.  A full list will be published soon.

More to come also on town histories, and small projects members of the society are working on.
