Scope and Content Note
These records were microfilmed by the South Carolina Historical Society through the cooperation of the South Caroliniana Library at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, under a grant from the South Carolina Committee for the Humanities as part of the grant titled “Genealogy, Community & Identity: Finding Local Roots.” These records represent the efforts of WPA field researchers who collected information on the history and records of approximately 2,500 South Carolina Churches in the late 1930s, including black congregations. The records include work forms, typed reports, newspaper clippings and short histories. The information pertains to physical descriptions of church buildings and grounds, pastors, types of records kept by the church and where kept, and information on any published or unpublished histories. The fiche is arranged within the county, only a listing.
The WPA microfiche were donated as a gift to the Winthrop Archives from the South Carolina Historical Society, via Dick Cote on July 1, 1981.
