Welcome to the Restore the Ancestors Project!

This project is a collaboration between Fold3 (Formerly Footnote.com), the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, FamilySearch and Lowcountry Africana, to digitize every surviving estate inventory for Colonial and Charleston South Carolina from 1732 to 1872, as well as selected Bills of Sale for the same period, in a FREE collection.

When the project is complete, the names of more than 30,000 enslaved ancestors from Charleston and surrounding counties will be restored to history in a free online collection, preserved for generations to come.

I Did 50 Badge

Introducing ... the I Did 50 Badge!

Did you index 10 pages of SC Estate Inventories, then decide to stay and index more? We are so very grateful if you did, but until now we have not had a special way to thank you for your contribution. Well now we do! If you have indexed 50 or more pages, you can proudly claim your I Did 50 badge with our sincere gratitude.

Here is another nifty little graphic you can post on your blog or website:
