Patrice, My name is Diane Kepus and I currently live in Sanford, Seminole County, FL. I would like to become active in the FLGenWeb Project and I am volunteering to be the volunteer coordinator for Volusia county as I see that someone already is handling Seminole County where I live. I previously lived in Volusia County and would be willing to take on that County as the history is also deep and interesting there. I lived in Volusia County for seven years from 2007-2014 and found the history very interesting as is most of the history of Florida. I am an avid history buff and as stated below have been involved in the research of our history for some time.

I did try to e-mail you but it was thru the rootsweb address and I see they are still having problems.

You may contact me at or

Hi! I'm from Germany and I'm looking for relatives in Jacksonville, Florida. My dad was an illegitimate child in 50's of the Stockton family (his mother was 16 and his father around 20 at the time). Unfortunately, there is of course no record of this.
Thank you for your help!

How does one join & what is there to learn? Can I get help tracing my family?

I'm need some information, regarding few cemeteries in Bay County Florida, located on Tyndall Air Force Base. The names of the cemeteries are Farmdale, Redfish and Marywood. Some of the headstones are missing or are extremely hard to read and could be covered by vegatation. I have been requested to take photos, for families, that are needing the photos, for genealogy research. Due to overgrown vegatation, missing headstones and those that are hard to read, I'm unable to locate the requested graves. Could someone provide me with information as to where I can find plot in formation i.e. cemetery plot maps and names of individual buried in those plots? Farmdale cemetery is nearly overgrown with vegetation, Marywood cemetery has approximately 20 graves unaccounted for and Redfish Cemetery is unlocatable, last known location of Redfish was somewhere, near Davis Point, on the Tyndall golf course and is most likely covered with vegetation. I would greatly appreciate any information.

Anybody here doing research in the Key West area?  I'm assuming this falls under the S.W. Coastal Counties, but don't see anything under that link.  I am researching the following surnames:  Mira, Martinez, Mesa, Sanchez and Hernandez.
