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. 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 volumes are generally arranged by county, and many have individual indexes. The DAR films are listed in the Family History Library Catalog under various counties and subject headings.
