The History & Genealogy Department is home to both a genealogy and a Florida history collection. A great resource is its online catalogs, which include an index to obituaries (since 1895) and an index to D. B. McKay’s Pioneer Florida column (1946–60). Additional local history titles are added to this database on a regular basis.
