Laurens District Chapter of SCGS Membership

Benefits of membership in Laurens District Chapter of SCGS.

As a member of Laurens District Chapter SCGS you will receive the Tree Climber, which is published four times a year. This is sent by email if possible. It contains lots of information about Laurens ancestors, old buildings and other articles of interest about Laurens County. You can also post a query here and other members, who have that ancestry line, will try to help you and you may have found a new “Cousin”. We also have people that will help you more in-depth with your research for a fee.

You will also receive the state SCGS publication The Carolina Herald and Newsletter published four times a year and sent by email when possible. We have a wonderful South Carolina History room at the Laurens County Library and Kathryn Weathers, who is in charge of this room, is always willing to help. Call the Library at 864-681-7323 and ask for Kathryn.

Please go to the “Books” page and see the books we have published and are for sale. They are very informational and a big help with your research. We have very informational meetings from January to April and September through November.  See “Meetings” for more information.

Your membership to Laurens District Chapter SCGS entitles you to be able to attend the SCGS Workshop in Columbia in July. This is a wonderful learning workshop for research. Shelby Lollis, the SCGS First Vice President, has wonderful speakers from all over the United States and Canada to come and give us information on how to do research and other genealogical topics.

Registration for this workshop and the SCGS Annual Meeting held in October will be posted later in the year.  Please fill out the Online Membership Form or download the off-line Membership Form and join us as we research Laurens County history and our ancestors together.
