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

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
