<br> Cemetery records, such as tombstone and [[Sexton Records|sexton’s records]], have value in that they may give birth and death dates, age at death, name of spouse and children, a maiden name or, occasionally, a birthplace. Tombstones may have symbols or insignias indicating military service and social or religious affiliations. It is important to look at surrounding tombstones because family members may also be buried nearby.
 
 
 
=== Locating Cemeteries  ===
 
 
 
The South Carolina Genealogical Society's [http://www.gps.scgen.org/ S.C. Cemetery Project] is a great starting point for cemetery research in the state. Their website includes lists of cemeteries in each county and names indexes to tombstones for select counties.
