Hi, My name is Jim Powell Jr, my name has been admin on this board probably as long as it has existed. I wanted to mention some exciting things going on. I work at the Alachua County Clerk's Office. Our Ancient Records page is around 13 years old now and has lots of info. All existing marriages with imagesfrom 1837 down to 1973. All existing County Commission Minutes, from 1846 to 1992. They are all every word searchable, with the exception of 1645 that still need to be transcribed... We have a Volunteer page on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/AVARVol/

We are also continuing our Volunteer work on the Alachua County Virtual Cemetery Project.. http://www.wizardofar.org/
We have a FaceBook Volunteer Page to go along with that project too... http://www.facebook.com/wizardofar/
We could use more Online Volunteer Help. You will find lots of ways to make our history/genealogy more accessible.
