S.C. Baptist Historical Collection

The South Carolina Baptist Church Records on microfilm collection does not contain records from every Baptist church in South Carolina. Only a limited number of churches chose to have their records microfilmed.

Records for each church vary greatly. You may find minutes, Constitution and bylaws, church history, and/or membership rolls. Historical data such as birth, baptism, and marriage records were normally kept by the minister performing the service and are usually not included in the official records of the church. For a better description of the microfilm reel contents, check under Description in the individual church microfilm catalog record.
