Book 1: A Preliminary Study of the Colonial Landowners of Orangeburgh Township, SC 1733-1749.
This book identifies 175 plats that were surveyed in Orangeburgh Township between 1733-1749. Most of them are shown on 7 maps included in the book. The names of the 166 landowners associated with these plats have been coordinated with other records of the period to more clearly identify the various families who first settled the area. Because most of these early landowners were German-Swiss immigrants, the name variations have often been a source of confusion. An appendix gives a theoretical partially reconstructed ship’s passenger list for the first group of 250 German-Swiss who arrived in July 1735. The book is 8 1/2 x 11″, 61 pages, comb bound and is available for $20 plus $5 shipping and handling…. Order Form

Book 4: Orangeburgh District, South Carolina Combined Census Index and Neighborhood Listings, 1800*-1820 (*Not including areas that became Barnwell and Lexington Districts).
This book contains a combined index to three early Orangeburgh District censuses. The index uses standard surname spellings to facilitate finding all entries for a particular family, regardless of spelling variations. In addition, household names are listed separately for each enumeration in the order in which they were probably visited. This is particularly important for the 1810 census as it was not microfilmed in the order in which the enumerator used the pages. An additional feature is the use of sequential numbers to identify each household. These numbers are being used for postings on this website regarding each census. The book is 8 1/2 x 11″, spiral bound, 176 pages and can be ordered by mail for $25 plus $5 shipping….Order Form
