The West Florida Society is a genealogy group with ancestors in West
Florida going back to the period prior to 1810 when there was an uprising
against Spain and the area became a separate republic for a short period of
time. After a few months the republic or province of West Florida joined the
United States. The Society is interested in promoting the history, culture,
and tradition of this important area that contributed to the rich heritage of
those states comprising West Florida. Our goal is to publicize this period
in our history and acquaint the public with our organization, and offer
membership to those interested in joining our Society.
