So what about Leesburg?

In today's Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter, Dick Eastman announced that there is a new library in Leesburg, FL.

You might think so what, but then why did he mention it. There must be some genealogical treasure at the Leesburg Public Library. It isn't that there is a large genealogical collection on the shelves. In looking some more, it seems that the library has in its online database access to NewEnglandAncestors.org which is operated by the New England Historic Genealogical Society. You will have to travel to the Leesburg Public Library to access this database.

Leesburg is about an hour's drive North of us. From I-75 you want to take the Wildwood exit and drive East. Considering the downtown Tampa library [Judge Germany Library] is also about an hour's drive. As is the drive to the Polk County Historical and Genealogical Library in Bartow. Leesburg is a small town so the parking should not be an issue. You can also drive most of the way on US-301 instead if Interstate driving is a bother. Use Google to make you a map there by either route.

If only I had New England ancestors!
