===== Proven Strategy: =====
Select a time period for which your ancestor lived. Search the microfilmed record of <u>''The Palmetto Leader'' </u>covering the
life span of your ancestor. Look for birth marriage and death notices. Read all the articles which were generated in the county where your ancestor lived. Read the articles which give information about the church and schools your ancestor attended. Be sure to also search <u>''The State''</u> newspaper Obituary Index.
