BYU Outlines are duplicates of these Wiki pages; therefore, the link to them has been removed. DiltsGD 20:34, 16 November 2010 (UTC)

There may be a problem with the links to extinct counties, districts that became counties, etc. These appear to be nonfunctional as links. I attempted to add a link below them (county formation timeline), and it doesn't appear to be functional either.

Question:  If the BYU Outlines are duplicates of these Wiki pages [see 16Nov2010 comment above], then where is the link to connect the researcher to the information in these BYU documents?  The template used has frozen the category:  Counties or Districts.  All sections above and below are functional. Hmmm! Who is the template fairy that plopped the template in this section?  User:Saguache214

Experimented with this page.  When you attempt to link to the wiki research county page, the county shows up in black in box at the end of the county page - indicating to me that the 'block' comes out of that area...or not?  This is getting curioser and curioser.  How can researchers locate information for an entire section on South Carolina?  User: Saguache214 31Oct2011 9:24p

Thanks for pointing this out. I found the code that was disabling the links and they should be working now. Let me know if you need any additional help. Murphynw 15:21, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Murphynw - thank you for removing the 'block'.  The section works completely and researchers can continue to obtain information on their South Carolina roots.  On their behalf, and mine - as a wiki research maintenance person - many, many, many thanks.  Adieu and ...did I mention...many thanks?
