Cherokee County South Carolina LinksIf you are hunting ancestors then this is the page to look at. Happy hunting. I know, an all inclusive table of links is nearly impossible. Cyndi's List is pretty close to "all inclusive" though. We've put
here links to places that we thought you might find helpful and some links that you might otherwise not know about. Hopefully you'll find them helpful.
We will place a reciprocal link simply for the asking. Just write to
the webmaster at the email address in the footer.

SK Publications makes copies of census records in print and CD
There is often good historical material on eBay.
Search for old maps, atlases, genealogy books, magazines & newspapers
and church histories... Be careful, some sellers have used products or
poor photo-copies that are priced higher than presently available full retail.

Is there a Cherokee County South Carolina Historical and Genealogical Society that is not a sub-group of an existing multi-area society? If not, why not?

The several family history search engines some of these have both paid and free services
Family Tree SoftwareI've used Family Tree Maker, Family
Ancestral File, and Legacy Family
Tree. I've found that each had advantages and disadvantages and I've also
found that each has a truly loyal following. I presently use Legacy Family
Tree version 4 almost exclusively, I like it - it has all of the tools that I need - it
meets my needs well. Some people don't like it and prefer something
else. Only you can decide which you like best.If cost is among your primary considerations then check out Personal
Ancestral File or Legacy Family
Tree. They are both full featured programs that are available for
download free. If what you want is a high availability of supporting CDs
then Family Tree Maker is a good
bet. In my opinion, Family Origins
has the best file merging function out there.
