Real People Real History
is something new. We are going to be placing online bits and pieces
of people's lives. Some from books and files from the Alachua County
Court House. Some submitted by you. I will start from the beginning
of the Records at the Court House, 1826. At that time the Alachua
Country, as it was referred to in several deeds, was a big part of the
Territory of East Florida. You can get an idea how big by looking
at the image to the left above, or the 1830 link to the right. Check
back often, and let me know if you have anything to submit.
If you would like to adopt a Florida American Local History Network County, please let me know. Jim Powell Jr
