About the USGenWeb Project

The USGenWeb Project consists of a group of volunteers working together to provide Internet websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. The Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free access for everyone. 

Organization is by county and state, and this website provides you with links to all the state websites which, in turn, provide gateways to the counties. The USGenWeb Project also sponsors important Special Projects at the national level and this website provides an entry point to all of those pages, as well.   Read about the History of the USGenWeb Project.

Welcome to Barnwell County SCGenWeb!   I am Lem Lancaster, your host for this site.   I have been an active volunteer and County Coordinator with the USGenWeb Project since 1997.
