WELCOME! I am Pat Sabin, County Coordinator for the Colleton County SCGenWeb, as well as Dorchester and Bamberg Counties. My "lowcountry" South Carolina families include Ayer, Byrd, Gavin, Hughes, Raysor, Risher, Stokes, and related families. The USGenWeb Project is a volunteer organization, and I consider myself a steward to this site. I do not take ownership of this material, and for as long as I am your county coordinator, it will never be removed from the USGenWeb Project.
My contribution to this
and other USGenWeb and independent history sites
is in coordinating and web hosting. Since I
live and work in Atlanta, Georgia, I regret
to say that I have neither the time nor the
knowledge to help with personal research questions
unless it coincides with my own family
research. It is my hope that the information
contained on this site will be of help in your
"lowcountry" South Carolina research.

About the USGenWeb Project
The USGenWeb Project consists of a group of volunteers working together to provide Internet websites for genealogical research in every county and every state of the United States. The Project is non-commercial and fully committed to free access for everyone.
Organization is by county and state, and this website provides you with links to all the state websites which, in turn, provide gateways to the counties. The USGenWeb Project also sponsors important Special Projects at the national level and this website provides an entry point to all of those pages, as well. Read about the History of the USGenWeb Project.
