The best collection of South Carolina cemetery inscriptions is at the South Carolinian Library in transcripts made by the Work Projects Administration. The cemeteries included in this collection are listed in Local and Family History in South Carolina: A Bibliography by Richard N. Côté. (N.p. Reprint. Originally published: 1981; FHL book 975.7 H23c.)

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) collection contains tombstone inscriptions from South Carolina cemeteries. This collection and an every-name index to it are described in the “Genealogy” section of this outline.

The Leonardo Andrea collection (see “Genealogy”) also includes inscriptions from numerous graveyards (FHL films 942259 item 20, and film 954250). Another helpful collection is South Carolina Cemetery Records, Three Volumes. (Salt Lake City, Utah: Genealogical Society, 1941-54; FHL book 975.7 V22a; film 873730 items 1-3).
