Karen Packard Rhodes, genealogical speaker and writer from Middleburg, Florida, is pleased to announce the publication of her latest book:

Non-Federal Censuses of Florida, 1784-1945: a Guide to Sources, by McFarland & Company.

The paperback book covers the colonial, territorial, and state censuses of Florida and documents which constitute supplements or substitutes for them. Finding aids and original and derivative sources for these censuses are covered, with critical evaluations and indications of where these books may be found in many Florida libraries. There is also information about such repositories as the Florida State Archives, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the General Archive of the Indies in Seville, Spain. The book may be ordered via or directly from the publisher.

Note: What is SGES, you ask? Why, it's the Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society, of course...
