New First Missionary Baptist Church, Edisto Island
The Gullah Society mapped burial plots and provided genealogical, archival and oral history research for New First Missionary Baptist Church’s Sacred Burial Grounds in 2015-2016. The project includes recommendations for restoration and preservation of gravestones, graveyard accouterments, etc. (where appropriate) and a maintenance/management plan for the burial site. This project enables the Church to manage and maintain their burial records, through an online map and database. Photographs, oral histories and family records can be added to the database.
