Re: 1930 S.C. Blacks in Census, page 1

Adolph;

Since this is the GETTING STARTED forum, I just want to add somthing to your project for you to consider.

The first rule of genealogy ... "SPELLING DOESN'T COUNT," which means that many civil servants, census enumerators, former slaves, and others, could barely read or write, so when doing your search for your DUPREE ancestors, please consider other variations, such as DUPRE, DUPUIS (pronounced doo-PWEE), DUPREY, DUPEE (another variation of Dupuis), and I'm sure there are others.

Having done a fair amount of Louisiana research, with the French influence, names like DUPREE can change quite often, and in order to make sure you don't miss any of your potential relatives, you have to think how they SOUND.

I wish you the best in your search. Please let us know if we can be of help to you.
