Florida Pioneer Descendants Committee
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 30.
We look forward to celebrating your Florida ancestry with you.
