#2  FSGS Florida Pioneer Recognition

Do you have an ancestor who lived in the territory of Florida before 1845 statehood?  The Florida Pioneer Descendants Certification Committee would like to hear from you.

And if your pioneer was born in any county area before it was officially formed and named, a county award may also be waiting for you.

Certificates are presented annually at the Florida State Genealogical Society's Pioneer Banquet each Fall in conjunction with yearly Conference events.  Your application is an excellent way to honor those folks who braved hardships to settle previously unknown areas.

For additional information, see the website of Florida State Genealogical Society at      http://www.flsgs.org/
and click on "Florida Pioneer" at top of page.

Don't put it off much longer! The deadline for submission of your application and documents will be June 30th.

We look forward to celebrating your Florida ancestry with you.
