I have seen a few post mentioning our online records. Our online records grow everyday, both in quanity and ability to search what we have online. We have deeds that date back to the 1820s, marriages that date back to 1837, Commission Minutes that date back to 1846, mortgages that date back to 1847 (previous mortgages were in the deed Books), Will Records that date back to 1840. There are also other books that don't fit the categories above online. All online records are free. The Florida Supreme Court created an Order about 9 years ago that made us remove all Court files no matter how old from the website. There is an online index. With an email you can order these records and pay the state mandated charge via credit card over the phone and receive either paper copies via snail mail or PDF files via email or download from our server if they are too large for email.
I personally have Hodge(William 1810, Alford 1859), Harris (Jacob Evander 1875, Mary 1912) and Fowler (Nathaniel 1820, Civel 1848) Ancestors in Alachua County as early as 1859. Any Cousins out there?
