I am quite willing to share information on the surnames that I research, but please understand that I am an amatuer genealogist, researching my own family lines. I do not research other surnames. . Please, do not write to me asking me to do a "quick" lookup in something like a Clarendon County census or run to the courthouse for you and mail you a copy of a will.
I won't know anything about your family history unless we happen to share ancestors. I spend all of my spare time as a volunteer taking care of the Sumter, Clarendon, and Lee County SCGenWeb sites. What little spare time I have left, I devote to researching my own family tree, working as a teacher in Sumter County, sponsoring my schools First Priority and Math Clubs, and working with the South Carolina Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
