South Caroliniana Library Catalog

DearREADERS,
THANKS to bjsgen for sending me this link to the new South Caroliniana Library website. Why am I excited about this? Well, I discovered when doing research at the South Carolina State Archives that the manuscripts are housed across town at the South Caroliniana Library on the campus of the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. It was at that facility that I discovered the many file boxes on my GIST family. While mine went from 1679 Maryland to Missouri by 1850, it was marvelous to unearth some original documents, and numerous letters and notes on the Mordeci Gist side of the family.

If you are searching for the online catalog for future research at a library, consider finding its link by going to: http://www.libdex.com/ It’s the index to over 18,000 libraries throughout the world.

Happy family tree climbing!
