Our Hidden Past is in the Records #genealogy #southcarolinapioneersnet

Our Hidden Past Lives On in the Records
By Jeannette Holland Austin

Here you are living your life and one day a historian or genealogist comes along and digs deeply into the records, even obscure records, like deeds, wills, estates, old newspapers and church registers. The discovery might be something you thought history would forget. However, it is amazing how much personal data that we leave behind. And what the records do not provide, we can piece together with local histories and events. For example, do you know what drove your families into South Carolina and where did these immigrants hail from? A general answer is that they were Germans and Scotch-Irish immigrants who were seeking religious freedom, rich soil and a prosperous life. But there is more! Witnesses to documents, neighbors, church burials, census records and marriages provide a host of friends and the community life of your families.
