<strong> Index to 1860 Federal Census of South Carolina </strong> - Jonnie P. Arnold. This index is taken from a microfilm copy of the 1860 Federal Census of South Carolina. It contains every surname shown in the census (80,909) and gives the name, district, and page number where the name can be found. Since district boundaries were not always observed by the enumerators, a thorough check will be necessary to locate all entries for a single locality. The researcher should be aware of the fact that the manuscript schedules are handwritten on printed forms and are often difficult to read. Many enumerators spelled phonetically, and every possible spelling variation of a name should be checked. Page numbers apply to two consecutive pages and are found printed in bold black type in the upper right hand corner of the page. There are three categories of listings in this index. These are Head of Household; one person with surname different from surname of the Head of Household; and two or more persons with same surnames, different from surname of the Head of Household, only one of which is indexed. The asterisk has been used to distinguish these listings. (1982, 2002) 2011, 8½x11, paper, alphabetical, 260 pp. </br> 101-A5272 </br>ISBN: 078845272X
