[May 26, 2012] New Florida Baptist History Resources

The State Archives of Florida has added new Baptist resources to their Florida Memory website: www.floridamemory.com.

The WPA Church Records Collection consists of approximately 5,500 church surveys conducted by the Works Progress Administration in the late 1930s and early 1940s. In total, the collection contains 20,000 individual digitized pages. The entire collection can be found here: http://www.floridamemory.com/collections/churchrecords/.

Of particular interest to you are the 2365 Baptist churches throughout Florida included in the survey. Please feel free to use and/or share these resources however you wish.
