About This Guide to Florida Archives and Manuscripts Repositories

The guide was first developed by Carla M. Summers, CA, CRM, as a sabbatical project in 1999. Funding to support the creation of the guide came from the University of Florida, University of Central Florida, Florida Humanities Council, Florida State Historical Records Advisory Board and the Society of Florida Archivists. Turned into a web accessible resource in 2003, the guide is continually updated by the University of Central Florida Libraries upon request.

Selected county and city public records repositories are listed but it is likely that most governmental entities maintain archival repositories. For the addresses of county clerks in Florida see Florida Association of Court Clerks and Comptrollers and for city clerks see the Florida Association of City Clerks.

The guide has been organized to browse by city, by county, or by the Central Florida area. As of October 2016, the guide was successfully migrated to the LibGuides platform.
