These records were transcribed on November 10, 2000.   A random sampling of the names I am researching are contained in this file.  Some of the colored records dated back into the 1850's.  These marriage record books are located in the Greenville County court house.  Researchers are welcome to do their own research in the books.  I found the records kept in a neat orderly manner.
