About the ECFGS Co-op

 

INTRODUCTION:
The Co-op was formed in July 1994 by Pam Cooper. As a genealogy librarian, Pam sought to coordinate area genealogical societies so that each group would know and share what was available at other area libraries. To date, the Co-op has conducted surveys of genealogical holdings at twelve county libraries as well as compiled an invaluable bibliography of family histories owned by the member instititions. They also have conducted a "Share Fair" since 1995. This is an all day event where members of the society listen to lectures, share new resources and buy books from vendors.

 

PURPOSE:
To provide a sharing of resources in nine Florida counties: Brevard, Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Seminole, and Saint Lucie.

 

GOALS:

 To exchange ideas, programs, and speakers

 To provide a basic knowledge of materials contained in each library of the nine counties

 To make genealogy resources more accessible when researching our family history

 

WHAT WE HAVE ACHIEVED:

 Library surveys of each library

 Local history surveys

 Surname database

 Geographic database

 Family history database from libraries in the nine counties
