South Carolina marriages by Brent Holcomb( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on virtually all extant sources, Mr. Holcomb has compiled a list of some 6,500 marriages which bear reference to approximately 15,000 persons. Since official South Carolina marriage records are extremely scarce, Mr. Holcomb labored valiantly to extract records of marriage from parish registers, as well as Quaker meeting records, marriage settlements, court records, bonds and licenses, and a variety of other sources. The work is arranged throughout in alphabetical order by the surname of the groom, and brides and others mentioned in the records are conveniently located in the index. Each entry gives the names of the bride and groom, the date of the marriage, and the source of the record

South Carolina naturalizations, 1783-1850 by Brent Holcomb( Book )

8 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work contains abstracts of the records of approximately 7,500 persons who were naturalized in the state of South Carolina between the years 1783 and 1850. As it is based not only on the records of various jurisdictions but on the various types of records associated with naturalization, such as declarations of intent, petitions and actual citizenship certificates, information given in the volume varies to a rather marked degree. In general, however, some or all of the following data is evident: name, country of origin, place of residence in the U.S., occupation, date of arrival in the U.S., and date of application or admission
Marriages of Rowan County, North Carolina, 1753-1868 by Brent Holcomb( Book )

5 editions published between 1981 and 2001 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the publisher: Rowan County at its formation in 1753 covered a large area, for it extended north to Virginia, and it had an indeterminate western boundary. It lay across the main migration route to the South and West, and it was peopled by pioneers of German, Scotch-Irish, and English extraction. It is their marriage records from 1753 to 1868 that form the basis of this work. The marriage records abstracted here derive from microfilm copies of the original bonds and from a microfilm copy of a register of marriage bonds maintained from 1851 by the clerk of the county court. The arrangement is alphabetical by the surname of the groom, and each entry has the name of the bride, the date of the marriage bond and, where recorded, the names of the minister, witnesses, and bondsmen. About 9,000 marriage bonds are abstracted, and with the others mentioned, the text bears reference to nearly 25,000 persons
Passenger arrivals at the Port of Charleston, 1820-1829 by Brent Holcomb( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Official passenger lists for the port of Charleston--be they Customs Passenger Lists or State Department Transcripts--exist only for the years 1820-1829. This work, compiled by South Carolina genealogist Brent Holcomb, captures this unique body of genealogical data on the several thousand people who managed to slip into Charleston through a relatively narrow window of time. Most were from Great Britain and Ireland, and most were young, most were male, and most were unskilled farmers and laborers. The lists themselves are arranged in the order in which they are found in the original, and all names in the lists are accessible by means of the name index at the back of the volume. The data in each entry, arranged in tabular format, is as follows: name of vessel, name of passenger, age, sex, date of arrival, occupation, where the passenger is from, country to which he belongs, and country which he intends to inhabit.--From publisher description

3 editions published between 1983 and 2001 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With the appearance of this work, researchers of all stripes can set aside some of their concerns about the lack of published reference materials on Orange County, North Carolina. Marriages of Orange County contains abstracts of all the marriage bonds issued in Orange County from 1779 until 1868, when marriage bonds--as prerequisites for marriage--were discontinued. These marriage records were abstracted from a microfilm copy of the original marriage bonds on file at the State Archives in Raleigh and refer altogether to some 20,000 persons, including bondsmen. In keeping with the format established by Mr. Holcomb in his other volumes of North Carolina marriage records, the data are arranged throughout in alphabetical order by the surname of the groom; and each entry includes the name of the bride, the date of the bond, the name of the bondsman, and, from 1851, the date of the actual marriage" -- publisher website (August 2007)
