I have updated the genealogy links on our home page; it is now 2 pages long. I have also added a list of Florida Cemeteries that includes GPS coordinates so that they can be easily located. I have also included a list of new books that the library bought for the genealogy room.

So few people look at this blog that unless there is some interest in keeping it, I will delete it. I thought it would be useful for members to exchange views and information but no one wants to even add comments much less post a message. Click on Comments and add yours to let me know.

Hurricane Katrina flooded the area in New Orleans where the records are kept. Some 12 million documents were never committed to digital format and are in jeopardy of being lost forever. A company has been hired to retreive them and dry them out but was refused entry into the city by Federal troops.
Check out this site for more information on that subject and other genealogy news. I subscribe to it through my RSS reader so I know whenever there is new information published.
