City Directories of South Carolina
The City Directories of South Carolina are housed at the Published Materials Division of USC's South Caroliniana Library. Many of the Columbia (S.C.) City Directores are at the Richland Library. Some of this collection was digitized by the Internet Archive as part of a project funded by PASCAL in collaboration with LYRASIS. It includes directories from the cities of Anderson, Camden, Chester, Clinton, Gaffney, Laurens, Newberry, Sumter, and Union.

This searchable collection of Columbia City Directories from 1859 is an invaluable source for historians and genealogists. City directories offer an alphabetized listing of residents and businesses as well as a street-by-street listing of occupants. Richland Library and the University of South Carolina Libraries are collaborating to scan all the Columbia directories up to 1923.
Lutheran Church Records of Lexington County, South Carolina (1866-1982)
This collection consists of parish registers, with records of baptisms, marriages, burials, and communions, in addition to lists of members, pastors, and church officers. The originals, most of which reside at the individual churches, were microfilmed and now digitized to extend easier access to these valuable records. Currently, only records from Lexington County are available. We will continue to add counties. Please check back for additions.
