The Lawrence Genealogy and Local History Room

Lawrence Room

The Lawrence Genealogy and Local History Room was given to the Greenwood County Library in honor of Doughty and Jack Lawrence and Becky and Ben Lawrence. Although the primary focus is on Greenwood and other South Carolina counties, the collection also holds books, microfilm, and journals on other states. The Lawrence Room is staffed by volunteers. If you have a basic knowledge of genealogy and an interest in helping others, please join our genealogy volunteers. Training, support, and workshops are provided and schedules are flexible. Please call Dana Ellis, Volunteer Coordinator 941-4654.
