Florida Pioneers

FSGS sponsors a program to recognize and “certify” Florida Pioneers who resided in Florida before statehood in March 1845 or who resided in a county area before it became a county (lots of possibilities here!).  If you haven’t “certified” your Florida Pioneer Ancestor, maybe this is the year to do so.  All of the details are on the FSGS website at:  http://www.flsgs.org/cpage.php?pt=6

    Hey, y’all! Hope your holidays have been merry and if you’re like me, you’re looking forward to the New Year 2013!

    Some exciting things are planned for 2013, starting with a Pioneer database. This new database will eventually replace the Pioneer and Descendant index that are currently on the FSGS website. The FSGS webmaster, Patti Martin, and I will be updating this database with information gleaned from the past 36 years of approved Pioneer applications. When completed it will contain Pioneer and Descendant names, the Pioneer biography, Pioneer birth and death dates (if that info is on the application), and other information about the Pioneer.

    This will be a members only resource, but we hope future Pioneer Descendant applicants will find this a nice research resource.
