Walking with Ghosts

.......... a website for the descendants of Angus and Nancy McCutchen MacLeod~~

Rodgers/Rogers Family of Sumter and Kershaw Districts/Counties of South Carolina

Update June 2011: Due to my involvement with the YDNA Project, I no longer am "actively" researching; I have every intention of picking up my research in the near future (once the YDNA project is fully up and running) and will continue to place records and information here when found..

The site is currently being updated, however, most of the new information has come from the emails of other researchers. That information will in most cases NOT have been verified by my personally viewing the records used. If you take this information for your own files, please remember that it has not been verified and proven unless otherwise specified.

Since I am not actively researching at the moment, there may have been newly discovered information on any of the surnames included on this site...i.e. new information may now be available on FreeBMD for birth and death information that contradicts what is found on this web site. When you see this, please drop me an email and I'll update the information. Please include the page title and web address in your email.

The original intent of this web site is the same as it has always been; to provide a FREE tool for researchers to help each other by the sharing of information - please support this intent by helping to keep it as accurate as possible. Corrections are always welcome - rude emails are not...(those of you who have sent them know who you are....).

Happy Researching and "Hold Fast"!

The information on this page represents the combined efforts of several researchers. I have verified the information by Wills, Equity, Deeds, Census and Cemetery Records where possible. Where no source is given, the information is unproven/unverified. Additions and corrections are welcome. Proper credit is always awarded to the provider of information. Happy Researching! !Source: Lori McLeod Wilke; "Walking with ghosts", Research 2000 - 2009
