New books

A couple of new books have become available at the Palmetto Roots web site. One is a survey of the Lybrand and Gibson cemeteries in West Columbia, SC. The other one is Abstracts from the Columbia Register newspaper January 1878-December 1885. Both are by Mark Lynne. The Columbia Register abstracts compliments the John Glass book edited by Brent Holcomb. The Record of Deaths covers the years 1859-1877. Most of the obits found in the Glass book can be found in the Columbia Register. I very excited about this book. Indexes are wonderful.

The Columbia Chapter of the SC Genealogical Society has also published a new volume of their cemetery surveys for Lower Richland. I don't see it on their web site but I know it is out: http://www.columbia.scgen.org/
