Most archives, historical societies, and genealogical societies have special collections and indexes of genealogical value. These must usually be searched in person.

A notable manuscript collection of compiled genealogies for Florida is the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Collection. This collection consists of transcripts of obituaries and wills, as well as Bible, cemetery, church, marriage, and death records. The volumes are generally arranged by county, and many have individual indexes.

One set of volumes was microfilmed in 1971 at the DAR Library in Washington, D.C., and is on 20 microfilms at the Family History Library.
A second set of volumes was filmed at the Florida Division of Archives, History, and Records Management in 1956 (Family History Library films 006954-55).
The DAR films are listed in the FamilySearch Catalog under various counties and subject headings.

Writing and Sharing Your Family History

Sharing your own family history is valuable for several reasons:

  • It helps you see gaps in your own research and raises opportunities to find new information.
  • It helps other researchers progress in researching ancestors you share in common.
  • It draws other researchers to you who already have information about your family that you do not yet possess.
  • It draws together researchers with common interests, sparking collaboration opportunities. For instance, researchers in various localities might choose to do lookups for each other in remote repositories. Your readers may also share photos of your ancestors that you have never seen before.
