Dear Ms. Lyles,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
For an overview on how to begin your research, we suggest that you review NARA’s Resources for Genealogists, as well as the FamilySearch Research wiki for Anderson County, South Carolina Genealogy. In addition, the document Suggestions and Advice for Family History Researchers may be useful
We also suggest that you begin talking to your various family members, especially the more senior ones, and ask them questions so you can gather names, dates, places, and stories. With that information in hand, you may begin to gather records about these family members and the places associated with them.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
