There is good news for genealogists, and GREAT NEWS for genealogists in West Florida. The Pensacola Public Library has announced the opening of the West Florida Genealogy Library in Pensacola. The Library will house the public library system genealogy collection and local history collection. It will also house the collection of the West Florida Genealogical Society.
With all of the bad economic news and so many library systems closing doors and cutting hours, it is heartwarming to read of a library opening.
The library opened its doors at 10 am on Tuesday, January 26, 2010.
