Orlando Memory

Today's Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter (a blog) had a posting, Florida Library Receives Grant to Replace Newspaper Obituaries.  The posting is interesting, but it pointed out that the Orange County Public Library has a four year old database called Orlando Memory collects digital stories, videos, photos, recordings, and other electronic media that reflected Orlando's history.  Most of the contributions coming from the public.

The Hillsborough County Public Library also has a digital history collection.  This collection is mostly developed by the library staff and other professional sources.

If our local libraries are looking for something to do, I hope some version of a digital history collection is considered.

  1. The Burgett Brothers collection at the Hillsborough Library website very interesting. And you don't need to drive to Tampa to see it. It is on line.
