Welcome to the Florida Genealogical Society (Tampa) Blog!

Welcome to the Florida Genealogical Society (Tampa) Blog! The blog replaces the printed bi-monthly newsletter formerly published by the society. The FGS Board made the decision that a blog provides much more timely information about the society and its activities than the newsletter. Further, the cost of production, supplies, and postage has increased substantially over the last several years, making the newsletter a much less practical communication tool than using electronic communications.

We hold our monthly meetings at 10:00 AM on the third Saturday of each month in the Auditorium of the John F. Germany Library, located at 900 North Ashley Drive, in downtown Tampa, Florida. A Southern Special Interest Group (SIG) is held at 1:00 PM the same day in the Ceta Rodgers Armitage Room just in the history and genealogy collection, located on the Second Floor West. The library's collection is one of the largest and most impressive genealogical collections in the Southeastern U.S.

We hope you will join us for our meetings!
