Selby Genealogy Collection Shelf List has been Updated! April 2013
Listings of the Genealogy Books in the Genealogy Section of Selby Public Library, Sarasota, Florida!
The Genealogical Society of Sarasota, Inc., in conjunction with the Selby Public Library Staff, has produced
a shelf listing of the “Non-Circulating” and “Circulating” resources in the Genealogy Area of Selby Public
Library. Two books with this information have been republished in April 2013.
The “Non-Circulating” titles are listed by shelf location, which is helpful to the library researcher.
For example, the titles of the resources for New York State are listed by their call number, which is how
they are positioned on the shelves in the New York Section. There are a total of 6,474 titles in
“Non-Circulating.” This listing is useful to check what is available at Selby Public Library to plan your
visit to the library to do your research.
The “Circulating” titles are listed in the same groupings, with one additional group, “How-To” research various
genealogy locations, has been added. All of these books are shelved in one area and are arranged by ascending
“Call Numbers.” There are 1,182 titles in “Circulating.” About two thirds of them are duplicates of items in
“Non-Circulating”, but the other one third are items only available in “Circulating.” These “Circulating” items
can be checked out and taken home to be studied.
The two books are located at the Genealogy Help Desk at Selby Library. Also, the
Listing of the Genealogy Books at Selby
is available from home or on a computer at the library through this website.
Click on the "Selby Book List" button on the left side of any page on this GSS website to access the listing.
The Genealogical Society of Sarasota would like to express our sincere gratitude to John Noyes, a long
time member, for the multitude of hours he spent compiling this list for our use.
Sarasota County Cemetery Records Online!!!!
Cemeteries of Sarasota County Florida - A Record of Births, Deaths,
In 1992, members of the Genealogical Society of Sarasota, Inc completed
a survey of all of the Sarasota County cemeteries, and compiled a listing
that was published in a book titled Cemeteries of Sarasota County Florida
- A Record of Births, Deaths and Burials. This book has been out of
print for several years. In 2007, several members of GSS prepared the data to
add it to our GSS website. GSS is pleased to be able to share the data with you
here via the internet.
This Book contains cemetery records from Sarasota County, Florida. The
data is organized into files based on the Cemetery Name and Alphabetically
by Surname. Adobe Reader is used to view and search the contents. Click
