FAIRFIELD COUNTY SOUTH CAROLINA
LAND DEED SERIES
These are copies of the original land deed series for Fairfield County, South Carolina.† This is a joint project with the Fairfield County Historical Museum and the Fairfield County Library.† This is the entire Land Deed Series in the county records.† The records are from microfilm rolls provided by the museum and library.†
The indexes cover the entire deed series, so they should be used regardless of which volume is being looked at.
The files are in .tif and .jpg formats and are best viewed in an imaging application.†
This particular project is based on IrFanView, available for free at:

Land Deed and Bond Series Index
1842-1900+ Direct (Seller) Index
1842-1900+ Indirect (Buyer) Index
(For now, these are links to the file store.† Working on the web pages.)
This is a single volume of bonds, receipts, powers of attorney, and other miscellaneous transactions.
Note that this book is indexed above as the first Volume A.
Please note Ė quality varies between the deed books.†
Some pages in some volumes are extremely faded.† The scanned images are the best that could be obtained.
Note that different volumes will have a different file format and frame layout.† Some volumes were digitized with
a Canon MS-500 scanner and are 1-page per frame.† Others were digitized with
a Wicks-Wilson UScan+ with RapidScan, so it autoimages at the full two-page frame size.
Note that some pages are faded in certain volumes, up to being nearly unreadable.† What you see
Is the best available after all image enhancement options.† If a page is nonetheless too faded
to read, your best option is to order a photocopy from the *original* book from the SC Archives.
Ordering a copy from the microfilm may not be much better than these.
This has caused some files to be extremely large: in excess of
15MB.† There isnít much I can do about
I believe the volume uploads went correctly, but if a file is not complete, please e-mail with the file name.†
Also if you find an image unusable (blurry, light, etc.), please e-mail with the file name, to firstname.lastname@example.org
