If you know or suspect that your ancestors were Baptists who lived in South Carolina, our collection of South Carolina Baptist Church Records on microfilm includes the records of over 500 individual churches in South Carolina. The records reach as far back as 1736 and frequently include the names of church members. They are also the only part of our collection that we loan outside the library.   The records can be requested through your local university's or public library's Inter-Library Loan department.

Furman University also maintains a subscription to Ancestry Library Edition, which is a great starting point for family researchers who have a Furman University login and password or are visiting the library.
