Please Note

Due to shelving constraints in our genealogy room, some of the Florida materials listed in this section are currently shelved in the Florida Reference section which is located on the 2nd-floor in Adult Reference.  Items that have been transferred are identified by the following phrase in the individual entry: “Note: Shelved in Florida Reference.” If you need assistance in locating this area, any 2nd-floor reference staff member will be happy to direct you to the area.

At times you will see “n.c.d.” used in a book description.  This abbreviation stands for “no copyright date.”

Don’t forget to check out the library’s separate listing for their Electronic Resources for your genealogy research.
