Project: South Carolina

Categories: South Carolina | South Carolina Projects

This project is part of the United States History Project.


Welcome to the South Carolina Project!

South Carolina is a state of contained, unshared intimacies, a place of crosscurrents, passwords and secret handshakes, but that it rewards the curiosity of both natives and strangers alike.

Pat Conroy

The purpose of this project is to coordinate all South Carolina related projects and resources and combine that information into one place.

Goals

The overall goals of the US History Project are to create and develop profiles on WikiTree for those who lived in the state of South Carolina. To meet these goals:

  1. Add South Carolina related profiles, checking for existing profiles to avoid duplication. If any duplicate profiles exist, request merges, starting with the oldest generation.
  2. If profiles were loaded by GEDCOM, use WikiTree Styles and Standards to clean up residue and broken links.
  3. Search out original rather than derivative documentation and add sources.
  4. Write comprehensive, well-sourced biographies.
  5. Add the South Carolina template to the profiles along with any relevant categories.
  6. Contact Paula J. to request PPP status for those profiles that meet the criteria for project protection. This will protect them from an incorrect merge.
  7. Make sure profiles of all family members are correct and documented.
  8. Profiles need to be linked to the greater WikiTree. Try to find the connection.

List of Things To Do

  1. Space pages need to be created and developed for South Carolina counties and linked to this page. Would you be interested in leading a county level project?
  2. If you have any South Carolina state resources that you are willing to do lookups, please add them to the South Carolina Resources Page.
  3. If you live in South Carolina, please consider adding your name to the South Carolina Research Assistance page.

Ongoing List of Things to Do

  1. Cemeteries in South Carolina need to be photographed and the categories added to profiles on WikiTree. See the South Carolina Cemeteries Project
  2. Help develop the Native Americans Project with information about South Carolina state tribes.
  3. Help develop the South Carolina Quakers profiles.
  4. Work on South Carolina's unconnected and unsourced profiles.
