Florida Genealogy Queries

Creating detailed accounts of your family history is the main reason for people to conduct Florida genealogy queries. To have any success with these types of searches, though, you need to know what exactly you should be looking for and where to look for it. Although much of it depends on the location, era and what specific data you need, you have different options for locating the information. The trick is to get creative and be persistent. If you use enough of the tools available to you, you will be able to conduct a very successful genealogy search.

Records for Your Florida Genealogy Queries

The most common type of documentation people use for their genealogy searches are vital records. These documents include things such as Florida death records, birth records and marriage records. You may also get important data from other records including divorce decrees and adoption records.

For Florida, it may be trickier to obtain some types of records, unless you can prove your relation to the person named on the records. Death records, for example, are generally only available for immediate family members and legal representatives, in most cases. If the cause of death is not listed, or if the records are from more than 50 years ago, however, these can be obtained by other people.

What You Can Find

When you use vital records for your Florida genealogy queries, you can get certain information, some of it depends on the type of documentation, though. In most cases, you can find names, dates and locations of a pivotal point in someone's life. Some documents may also list the names of other relatives. All of these details can be useful for your genealogy record keeping or, at the very least, help lead you towards more names that could be researched for more data.

Other Resources

There are other ways you can get information for your Florida genealogy queries. You can often find details that can help with your research from resources such as military records and Florida cemetery records. If you have difficulty finding certain things, you can also try contacting a genealogy volunteer group. Members of these groups can often use other methods to obtain harder to find documentation. All in all, some of the best data comes from places such as the census, immigration and naturalization or ancestry records.

The Bottom Line

You may have to pay some minor fees throughout the course of your Florida genealogy queries. Most agencies have a nominal fee for copies, shipping and handling. Prices generally vary based on the type of records you are looking to obtain. These prices, though, can be worth the investment if the results are what you need.

The dates from when you can find documentation vary, as well, based on what records you are looking for. So, for example, in the state of Florida you can find birth certificates through one department that only goes back to 1963. For death records, however, you can go back to around 1917. Be patient and persistent, and you will have great success from your Florida genealogy queries.
