Genealogy by the States – Week 27 – Florida

Posted by on Sunday, 7 July, 2013

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.

John and Minnie spent most of their lives in Connecticut, spending most of their lives in New Britain, Connecticut. However, John and Minnie moved to Florida for a while where they built a house.
