In March and April, 1996, a group of
genealogists organized the Florida
Comprehensive Genealogy Database.
The idea was to provide a single entry
point for all counties in Florida, where
collected databases would be stored.
In addition, the databases would be
indexed and cross-linked, so that even
if an individial were found in more
than one county, they could be located
in the index.
The Sumterville Courthouse that burned in 1909
is now in Bushnell, FL.
We are always in search of help from on-line visitors. If you can provide information of Sumter County i.e. documents, stories, pictures, or look-up assistance, please notify us via e-mail.
Let me know if there are any links that do not work. Even though I have tried to be very careful, there may be something I've overlooked....
