The history of the Escambia County, Florida GenWeb (FLGenWeb)Project, Inc. began with Rootsweb and Ms. Virginia "Ginny" Deagan, a longstanding member and volunteer of West Florida Genealogical Society (WFGS) serving as Webmaster and County Coordinator for more than 10 years. During 2008-2009, the FLGenWeb was incorporated when purchased Rootsweb and the GenWeb Projects under it. In May 2010, the project moved away from RootsWeb and established its own web site. Escambia County, effective June 2017, also has moved from Rootsweb to the project server at Click on the above logo to navigate to the project index.

On behalf of researchers worldwide, we continue to solicit your contributions, comments and suggestions. We are hopeful that the WFGS, along with its members and other volunteers, will continue to be dedicated to helping researchers of Escambia County, Florida and the surrounding area known as West Florida.

Since I am not a research specialist, I regret that I am unable to give you personal assistance in your research; however, I may be able to point you in the right direction! I sincerely wish you happy hunting within these pages that are made possible by so many diligent volunteer contributors!
