ORANGEBURGH_SC Mailing List*

ORANGEBURGH_SC is a mailing list for all serious researchers of the people of Orangeburgh Township, South Carolina. The area of South Carolina this covers is determined by the time frame. Of particular interest is the South Carolina "burned counties" and Calhoun, Lexington, Barnwell, Aiken, Edgefield, Newberry, Richmond, Sumter, Saluda, Bamberg, Old Colleton, Dorchester and Old Berkeley Counties. Therefore, primary discussions center around upcountry families (mostly German-Swiss origin) between the period 1735 to 1865. - LIST GUIDELINES
