South Carolina Obituary Records

Finding South Carolina obituaries online is an incredibly easy process as long as you have some basic information to start with. It helps if you have an idea of the date of death and it also helps if you know what region of the state the person lived in when they passed away. Once you have that information, you can begin using sites like the Leonardo Andrea Genealogical Collection for South Carolina. There is an astonishing amount of information here and it is all free to look at and easily searchable. You can also check the Beaufort County Public Library for information from this area of the state. Listings start in 1862 and go until 1981. The Camden Archives and Museum also has a large number of listings online that have come from the Kershaw County newspapers. The Charleston County Library is always a good place to check if you need South Carolina obituary records. They have a wide array of scanned newspaper pages from the last few decades. You can check out the site for the Colleton County Library and browse their selection of listings from way back in 1873 all the way back to modern day.
