Obituary Lookup Volunteers
South Carolina


Please follow these guidelines when making a lookup request:

  • If this is your first request, read Making a Request.
  • To find the county for your lookup request, use the USA County Lookup.
  • Before making a request, do a quick Web Search in case the obituary is available there.
  • If you find a volunteer for your area, use the listing's Email link to send your request directly to him or her.  If you don't find a volunteer, send your request to the mailing list (see OBIT-LOOKUPS-L Mailing List for subscription information).
  • After receiving a lookup, post or publish the obituary or an abstract to help other researchers.
  • Please do not send the same request to more than one volunteer.


WE NEED VOLUNTEERS - Please consider volunteering
for your area, even on a limited basis, because every lookup
helps someone. 
Becoming a Volunteer has more information.



Volunteer listings are by county, with statewide listings last, and related statewide links below.  The areas the volunteer covers and the resources available are listed along with the volunteer's name and e-mail address, and web page if any.  Entries in green are web sites for libraries, newspapers, death records, cemeteries, and genealogical/historical societies.  Many library web sites have information about local obituaries and newspapers.
