* Index to the South Carolina Indian Journals. South Carolina established formal, regulated Indian trading as early as 1710. The state maintained journals of the trade and published a massive three volume set (out of print now, but available for review at the South Carolina Archives) the Journals of the Commissioners of the Indian Trade 1710-1718; Documents Relating to Indian Affairs 1750-1754; and Documents Relating to Indian Affairs 1754-1765. These journals contain fascinating accounts of Indian traders, commerce, militiamen, wars, treaties, relations, white settlers among Indians, and other important information to genealogists and historians. While the volumes are unavailable (except for review at the acrchives), the complete index here to these three journals provides an invaluable tool for research.

|South Carolina Indians, Indian Traders, and other Ethnic Connections beginning in 1670. (On CD)|
|This voluminous 503 page book on CD is THE definitive
genealogical and historical study of South Carolina Indians, and the Indian Traders who married and traded with them. Unlike Virginia, South Carolina had no laws prohibiting white and Indian marriages. Additionally, South Carolina regulated the Indian trade from 1710 on. Therefore, massive records exist on White and Indian interaction, marriage, trade, and more. Theresa Hicks has spent a lifetime researching South Carolina, which in earlier centuries encompassed a massive area.
|From theses records she has written a comprehensive genealogy and history of South Carolina Indians and Indian Traders. The index alone, comprised almost exclusively of names, contains approximately 9766 entries. This book details the ethnic connections between Whites and Indians, with chapters on the meeting of the Old Settlers and New Settlers, statistics and activities, the Old Settlers, glimpses of the early colony, Titles and Commissions issued; Indians, Indian Traders, Commissioners, and Agents; African Slave Trader families, an extensive review of many families beginning with Ayers and ending with Williams; Affadavits and Notices, Censuses and other schedules, Contemporary Indians, and Sources for Discovering Indian Heritage. ($56.95 plus $3.50 S/H). Click here to see the contents page and the massive amount of data in this book!
