DARLINGTON COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - If you've wondered about your heritage or where your family came from, you may be in luck. The Darlington County Library system is hosting a program to help families discover the root of their family tree.

The event will be held at the Darlington Branch of the Darlington County Library system, on Saturday, July 12, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

"Darlington County and the region have a rich and varied history. Our goal is to help get people started so they can go back five to six generations.
