Okay folks...I bet you thought I really was the Dead Librarian. I haven't posted in a while. There is lots to tell you but I have been very busy at work and the blog just kept getting lower and lower on my to-do list. My news today is too exciting to hold off. Ancestry now has the SC Death Certificates digitized.
It looks like they are all there. I did a search of Shealy's for all of South Carolina. All 500+ hits had a digital image.
The images must have been digitized from the originals because they are clear and as easy to read as penmanship allows.
Remember that if you are a card carrying member of the Richland County Public Library you can access Ancestry for free at any of the branches.
