Florida Genealogical Society (Tampa)

Serving the Needs of the Genealogical Community for Over 50 Years

Saturday, April 11 Meeting

Join us on Saturday, 11 April 2015, when Lee McQueary, librarian in the Florida History and Genealogy Library of the John F. Germany Library will present a program titled "10 Overlooked Resources in the Library's Collection."  
Local history, historic newspapers, and city directories are just a few of the topics that will be covered.  Stop by the Florida History and Genealogy Library  after the presentation for one-on-one assistance with any of the resources discussed in the presentation.
Our business program and educational meeting begins at 11:00 AM in the Auditorium of the John F. Germany Library at 900 N. Ashley Drive in downtown Tampa. Special interest groups will meet at 10:15 AM. Guests are welcome!
We look forward to seeing you there!

Here's a brief clip from News Channel 8 coverage on January 8 (although just to be clear, the HCCF program is a program of the Florida Genealogical Society, not of the library system).

We Recognize Our Volunteers

The Florida Genealogical Society, Inc., of Tampa truly appreciates its volunteers, and we recently honored some of them with awards. The photos below were taken at our February 2015 meeting during which our president, Drew Smith, and Awards Committee Chair, Susan Jones, presented the awards.
