Census data for Allendale are complete.  Prior to 1919, all of Allendale County, except for a small strip on the south, was part of Barnwell Co.  The strip to the south was part of Hampton County, and Beaufort County before that.  Many early census records are available for purchase from Alligator Creek Genealogy Publications.

Please submit items for inclusion, and please state your sources. A great resource is the "roots" surname list, (in ancient days, the Rand surname list).  Where documented, the original source is stated.  If a submitted file, is not referenced, contact the original submitter (should be Email linked from the file) for sources.  Kindly inform ye webmeister of any dead links, mistakes, etc., or suggestions on format.

This list is not inclusive.  These settlers came from: Richland Co., SC, Charleston, Germany (through Charleston), North Carolina, and Virginia, .  If you would like to contribute to this list, please mail your contribution to the webmaster. Digital format  (i.e. Email) is preferred, or I will digitize it as time permits.  Oral tradition is perfectly acceptable, but please state it as such, state the source, and when and where recorded (your great Aunt's notes on a grocery bag in 1927).  Oral tradition is a definite strength, just be sure and state it as such.  Please notify the webmaster of errors, corrections, or additions.  If you have documentation on families with links to Allendale, please submit them for inclusion.

The documents contained herein may be freely used for private purposes, and included in your own genealogy. However, these documents are copyrighted, please retain the copyright notice, credit the source, and, for heaven's sake, and that of your descendants and cousins, retain conjecture where so stated.  These documents may not be sold, nor given to anyone who may attempt to derive profit from them.

Most spelling errors are as they appeared in the records, if blatant, followed by "sic."  Check important details on the original.  Never trust a secondary reference for an important link.  Even primary references can be, and are, ambiguous.  Barnwell (a parent county) probate, deed, and court records are complete (from c1785) except for one deed book.   Please notify me of errors, clarifications, ambiguities, or suggestions on format.  I am slow, I make mistakes, and I have fouled up my best intended configuration management several times. These are not intended, I offer apologies in advance, and I will gladly fix them when they are pointed out! :o)

Abbreviations used: BCH -Barnwell Court House, SCDAH -South Carolina Department of Archives and History (Columbia).  If you see an ambiguous, ill defined, or not defined, statement, please Email me.  All suggestions and comments are welcome.  Copyright ©1997-2015, SCGenWeb, Allendale County web site, all rights reserved.
