Chicora Foundation and Southern Genealogical Research: Follow Friday

Today’s Follow Friday is about the Chicora Foundation, a South Carolina non-profit organization dedicated to “archaeological and historical research throughout the Southeastern United States, public education (primarily right here in South Carolina), and work in conservation and preservation with museums, libraries, archives, historic organizations, and private citizens.”

Genealogists working in the southern United States may find Chicora’s archeological newsletters of interest, particularly those including articles about cemetery and grave-site preservation in the South. Their newsletters also have preservation and disaster preparation tips.

Chicora also publishes the Research Series, containing results of project-based research for various sites throughout the South.
