The South Carolina Room at the Hughes Main Library in downtown Greenville features one of the most extensive historical archives in the state. Are you doing historical or genealogical research and want to explore the lives of people who lived in South Carolina? Newspaper clippings can add to your ancestors' story, marriage records may feature the names of your ancestors' parents, and death records might reveal the location of burial as well as close family members' names.
Order vital records, newspaper articles, military and land records, and more today by filling out the record request form below. While access to the South Carolina Room is currently limited due to public health concerns, as a special service, the Library is temporarily offering free record requests of Vital Records and Newspaper Article Searches to Greenville County residents with valid library cards. Due to the high volume of requests, up to five free requests can be made per week. Others may request records for a nominal fee. Please allow additional processing time for multiple requests. If you live outside the United States and would like to submit a record request, please email the South Carolina Room for assistance.
