Hard to find but free places where you can research genealogy on line, without having to pay. Your comments and feedback are welcome to any post. If you find dead links, please let me know so I can update or remove links that are no longer valid.

About me: Jerry E. Reed
First and foremost, I am a seasoned voice talent and media/public relations specialist with many other interests. I have been helping businesses with their narrations, presentations, commercials, and more all of my adult life.

I am also a genealogist, a
n avid photographer, and artisan bread baker.
My genealogy interest began before personal computers were a family "must have." Personal genealogy computer research has blossomed in the past 15 years. It wasn't long before someone decided that they could charge for information that should be free and in the public domain. I have always been frustrated by that. Now, thousands and thousands of pages of useful facts are coming on line daily in free-to-access digital archives located all over the world. So, I'm constantly searching for new sources of free on line material. Blog updates follow this section and all links are added to the master list below the new posts.
Updates are posted when
I discover another new source or when something I have already reviewed gets a major update.
Have fun and enjoy.
Note: if you find a link no longer works, please let me know so I can research and update it.

Florida Statewide Official Records -

Several counties in Florida have records on line that go back to the early 1900s. However many of them only date back a decade or two. Eventually, more and more data will become available as the site reports that "Most counties update their online information each week night". This is a site to bookmark and will become more and more useful as time goes by. On the first page there's a handy link that pulls up a chart for each county showing how far back their online records go on the site. The site is a joint effort produced by the Florida Local Government Internet Consortium, which includes the Florida Clerks of Court and Florida Tax Collectors, in partnership with the Florida Association of Court Clerks Services Group. Keep tabs on this one. It's a keeper.
