The Works Progress Administration (WPA) and the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) have compiled major collections of South Carolina tombstone inscriptions. Alexia J. Hensley, Silent Cities, Cemeteries & Classrooms (Columbia, S.C.: South Carolina Department of Archives and History, 1997) includes a bibliography of published cemetery inscriptions for South Carolina. See also Cote (1981), listed in Background Sources, who provides a listing of major published collections. Most South Carolina counties have historical or genealogical societies that have compiled cemetery records. Schweitzer has addresses for local historical and genealogical societies. Cemetery records are frequently published in the major genealogical periodicals of South Carolina (see South Carolina Periodicals).
