Search South Carolina Census Records
South Carolina Census Records are most effectively searched if you know the specific township and county (or Parish, ) where your ancestors lived for the period you are searching. If you are certain of the location, you can filter out many unwanted results. If your search does not yield any matches, you should consider the possibility that your ancestor may have moved.
In some cases, town and county borders may have changed since the prior census. In other cases, your ancestor may have simply moved a few miles, but could have easily crossed over a town, county or state border in the process.
