Williamsburg Reminiscences
As I read "Narrative Reminiscences in Williamsburg" (pub. 1894) by Dr. Samuel Davis McGill (b. 1819, d. 1897), I simply jotted down notes of- 1. people from other places that were associated with the author- 2. people that moved from other states to Williamsburg- 3. people that moved to other states from Williamsburg and- 4. people that moved within the state of South Carolina.

About the SCGenWeb Project

In March and April, 1996, a group of genealogists organized the Kentucky Comprehensive Genealogy Database. The idea was to provide a single entry point for all counties in Kentucky, where collected databases would be stored. In addition, the databases would be indexed and cross-linked, so that even if an individual were found in more than one county, they could be located in the index.

At the same time, volunteers were found who were willing to coordinate the collection of databases and generally oversee the contents of the web page. The SCGenWeb Project is an extension of the KYGenWeb Project.
