Marineland , Fl. is located south of St. Augustine, Fl.  It fronts on the Atlantic Ocean.  It was one of the first tourist attractions in Florida and boasted large tanks for sea creatures, dolphin shows and warm climate Penguins.  Attached to Marineland is an oceanography department associated with the U of F.  From time to time the attraction is open to the public. The research lab is open for visits.
 
I invite you to look around your home and see what memorabelia you have that is perhaps the one piece of evidence that would help another researcher in their quest.  I am Fran Smith, a native of Lake Co., and I would love to post your information, pictures, articles, deeds.  Any and all of those things  help establish residency for a person and show their life style to future generations.

Please send them to me for inclusion here.

Flagler is located in the north central section of the Florida shore Atlantic beaches.  The family can enjoy the 19 miles of beach, as well as hiking, biking, and many other outdoor activities in other parts of the county.  

The county was formed in 1917 from parts of St. Johns and Volusia counties.  The county was named for Henry Morrison Flagler who is responsible for much of Florida's growth due to his vision and construction of a railroad system for much of the east coast.  His first venture was in constructing a rail from the mainland to Key West.  He also was involved in real estate and built several hotels. He also was charitable with his empire in helping hospitals,churches and schools come into existence.  

Bunnell is the county seat situated a bit inland. Although the beaches and outdoor activities are what one thinks of when you mention a county on the beach, agriculture is also a large part of the land usage.  Crops of cabbage, potatoes, pepper, squash and blueberries dot the country side.  One can also see cows and goats grazing.  Not so different from our ancestors lives in the area.  Perhaps just the methods have improved.  

If history is of interest to you,  Flagler County provides historical self-guided walking tours around Bunnell and Flagler Beach so you may view history itself and learn of our heritage.

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
