A building two blocks from the Capitol in Tallahassee houses millions of state records and other items that belong to the people of the State of Florida. But you don’t have to visit Tallahassee to explore those resources. This edition of Florida Crossroads takes you inside the vast holdings of the State Archives and Library through an online portal everyone can enter: Florida Memory. We’ll explore the strange, beautiful Spanish Land Grant maps that are still legal documents after more than two centuries; photographs, films and videos everyone can enjoy; and reveal some little-known records of special interest to African-Americans researching family histories.
