This week’s blogging prompt is the State of Florida. Blog about an ancestor or your families connection to Florida. If you don’t have any connections to Florida, find a Floridaresource useful for genealogy research to highlight and write about. This week’s prompt runs from 7/7/2013 – 7/13/2013. If you choose to follow along, I would appreciate a mention to the Hidden Genealogy Nuggets website.
